Sinead

This was announced last month, but I'm admittedly not paying close attention to what is up with Sinead, and just realized it when I saw that tonight's Beacon Theater show was cancelled...

"With enormous regret I must announce that I have to cancel all touring for the year as am very unwell due to bi polar disorder," she revealed in an online message.

The Irish singer added, "So very stupidly I ignored his advice to my great detriment, attempting to be stronger than I actually am."

The 45-year-old vocalist played a few shows earlier this year and was supposed to hit the road again this spring behind her new album, "How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?."

In December, O'Connor announced her split from therapist Barry Herridge after 16 days of marriage. They tried to reconcile, but eventually called it quits in January 2012. [CBS]

Feel better Sinead.

For the record (despite the above comments), I think you should be able to cancel portions of your tour/ life due to mental disorders. I do not have a debilitating mental disorder, but last year I suffered a traumatic bodily injury and was able to cancel out major portions of my life (i.e. work, social engagements, etc.), without the consequence of much social derision. The fact that you cannot do that because of a major mental disability only points out how far we have not come in relation to the mentally infirm (which is in no way an endorsement of Sinead O'Connor's music, which I really have never listened to, ever).

Whoa. Here's someone new to BV. You're not incorrect. It's just that no one here cares, or if we do we aren't talking about it in a thread. Get it now?

10:15. I get it: Nobody cares about nobody caring about nobody caring. It's the snake eating its tail of nobody caring, and it's really fucking funny, 3% of the time. YTIN dude.
