Sinéad O'Connor: Nothing Compares 2 Noel Gallagher?
While GRAMMY winner Sinéad O'Connor's love life, or lack thereof, has been public knowledge in recent years, perhaps nothing compares to what the Irish singer revealed in a recent interview with Uncut magazine. "Liam [Gallagher's] brother Noel once asked me to marry him, just before he married Meg Matthews," O'Connor revealed, speaking of the former Oasis members. "He won't remember, as he was off his face at a festival in Amsterdam." The Irish songstress also recalled the time she tried to beat up Pink Floyd's Roger Waters after he tricked her into miming onstage in 1990. "I don't like lying to an audience, so as soon as I got offstage, I saw Roger and chased the c*** to beat the s*** out of him," she recalled. Let this be a lesson that if you ever propose to Sinéad O'Connor, you better remember it.
