Madonna 2 Sinead O’Connor 4 Elizabeth Taylor 8 by Andrew Stergiou for Fuck You! Blog!
I wager the London bookmakers are already taking bets on weither Sinead O’Connor and Madonna, will be trying to get married again any time soon, and the long odds are that their marriages would not last if they do, towards which end I would be betting and add:
It is highly easy for one to be critical of famous celebrities, it is easier than that to be critical of celebrities who get married again and again without them ever resolving the issues of life, love and happiness. Madonna can be said to be smart in only getting married two times, but without children she also can be said to be selfish and self-centered, and much as Elizabeth Taylor in getting married eight times with four children can be said to be a giving hopeless romantic.
On hearing these stories I get many snap impressions which people can easily jump on and criticize, though they say what ever they want, but don’t write much as people take life, living and the world for granted as they hear it rather than intuitively and intelligently understanding.
Reuters plastered the internet from its fortress podium of highly selective moderated forum posts, that “Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has ended her fourth marriage after just 16 days, blaming pressure and disapproval from the family and friends of her new husband Barry Herridge”. Without insight a media forum with nothing more than the redundant information it parroted from press releases and the like. No wonder celebrities hate the media as they seem to be unable to be socially helpful in reportage on people as well as the nation, the world, and the fate of all humanity either. Sorry Greenpeace you will have to wait until Reuters gets the gossip straight before you get a word in.
Likewise Sinnead O’Connor, 17 going on 47, “said on her blog that her marriage went wrong three hours after the Dec 8. ceremony in Las Vegas and that the pair had lived together for only seven days before splitting on Christmas Eve.”
Now it is a tenet of my faith that any one who gets married in Los Vegas, theRivieraor one of the many tourist traps gets what they ask for, but in that Ms. Sinnead O’Connor has hit the magic number of four that is considered very unlucky in some Asian circles, as are the numbers 5, 6,7.
Number 4 (四; accounting 肆; pinyin sì) is considered an unlucky number in Chinese because it is nearly homophonous to the word “death” (死 pinyin sǐ).
So in that “Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage” Sinead O’Connor’s latest marriage was over “kyboshed (ruined)” as she rationalized “by the behavior of certain people in my husband’s life” without her accepting responsibility for the most part of what occurred in “a bit of a wild ride” as she said “decided to end the marriage” after
“rushing into getting married” impulsively “without being prepared for the consequences”
“The marriage was 16 days. We lived together for 7 days only. Until Xmas eve. And we haven’t been awful to each other,” she wrote.” but in reality she has been awful to herself as she jumped in from “Her most recent union to musician Steve Cooney” earlier “this year after about one year” which shows she has bad judgment, can be emotionally unstable, and inclined towards impulsive behavior just as she “courted controversy in the 1990s by tearing up a photo of Pope John Paul II on live television in a protest over priestly sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, by declaring herself to be a lesbian and then retracting her assertion, and by being ordained as a priest in a breakaway Catholic Church sect”.
Reported by Reuters by Jill Serjeant, edited by Christine Kearney I believe this is the good old girls version of the good old boys network that soft pedaled the issues as sympathetic to her issues but objectively and emotionally one must Sinead O’Connor “where to babe? what next? You can’t keep it up without risk.
O’Connor married Herridge, her fourth husband, after a whirlwind romance. They wed on her 45th birthday at the Little White Wedding Chapel inLas Vegas. Earlier this year, the singer went about a public search for a new man on her website, wrote a series of suicidal tweets that alarmed her fans and revealed plans to release a new album next year.
No sooner than Rolling Stone reported O’Connor, who has four children, has been married three times previously– to music producer John Reynolds, journalist Nicholas Sommerlad and musician Steve Cooney. According to the Irish Independent, would be married again to Herridge is a children’s addiction counselor she is ending the marriage.
Both Madonna and Sinead O’Connor seem fairly intelligent though Madonna seems the colder of the two. where Madonna seems to involve more of a Diva factor and ego, Sinead O’Connor seems to involves more of a human factor in what divides intellect and emotion rather than what unites them. So I take this opportunity to express my sorrow for Ms. Sinead O’Connor’s misfortunes, hoping she may resolve her issues before incurring any further troubles, as she has entered the no man’s land of ending her fourth marriage when she impulsively ended it as quickly as her began where many dare not enter.
Adding it is better to love than never love at all, and better to love and remain unmarried than to go through all the bother just for the trouble and pain of it all.
