Oh, Sinead O’Connor, there’s nothing I like more than a DJ with an opinion on news items.
That was me being sarcastic, Sinead O’Connor. I’m sure back in the day I was probably annoyed with you when I heard this story, because at the time DJs were my trusted source of what I should think. Now, I realize the old adage about opinions and assholes is more true than ever. And as much as I can’t stand “journalism” these days, the absolute worst is a music DJ throwing in his or her two cents just to fill up some air time. It was around the Iraq War when I first really realized just how obnoxious and uneducated the airwaves could get, and things have gotten much worse in the last decade and a half.
BUT, this is not that kind of blog, so I’m not going down that road, because my opinion isn’t any more informed than the DJ in this clip. The only thing I can say with absolute confidence is that you’re an amazing singer, Sinead O’Connor. It’s all I know and all I WANT to know.
