Yeah sure Prince?? I`m a big fan of Sinead and I`m sure that she doesn`t like Prince, you have to delete this man from this list. Oh and by the way John Reynolds ?? Its not him in this pictures

laganloveSep 4, 2007

Hello folks-I`m a longtime fan of the gifted and gorgeous Sinead O`Connor.I know quite a bit about her,and I`ve never heard of her dating JFK JR.,or Prince.She recorded and made a hit of Prince`s song,"Nothing Compares to You".One of her famous stories is about Sinead meeting Prince,and his ideas about having a fling with her.She told him to go f himself,and laughs when she tells that story.Need to delete Prince from this list.Get up to date with Sinead-she has a new cd and is on a world tour.
