Remember, she called the detectives after P passed and made a wild statement.

This fiction is damaging to one person....Shinehead.

She is just not credible and has a history or going off the deep end.

I hope she snaps out of it someday and finds some peace.

No other women will be coming forward, because they don't exist.

Ignore this trash and keep groovin' to the purple beats.

Peace

A person can't "snap out" of severe mental illness...


Thanks for letting me know that. I officially change that terminology to "get the help she needs".

I totally agree.She has absolutely no right to go around,spreading this garbage when Prince is not here to defend himself.Furthermore,no other woman is going around saying this crap.Sinead is a terrible excuse for a human being.

  1. Additional comments about multiple other women being beaten? Hmmm, Prince had a close to 40 year career, had many female partners, friends, protogees, band members and employees, and has been dead for a few years now. No one has come forward and said a bad word about him. In fact, quite the opposite, . For Sinead to make these wild accusations that other women were beaten especially without Prince to dend himself - again, that just seems self-serving and frankly, c'mon you've just sang his song - show some dignity! Where's the evidence for that? Leave that to others to speak if it's true.

She talked about this many times he was alive and he didn't sue. Considering the things he did threaten legal action over it should at least give you pause for thought. Now maybe he just recognised she had mental health issues and decided to let it be but I'm not so confident. I hope calling her names makes you all feel better though.
She's a mental cunt. Yep, that did make me feel better biggrin

Maybe suing her would've made him look more guilty? I have a friend who's bipolar and I know what that comes with, but this is no excuse to just go on television and tell lies. It's more likely that she lies, why did no one else ever come forward and told these stories especially when she says he beat up other women too? Especially when we consider how treated some people, no one ever came out and said he beat somebody up.

I think it's true they clashed, and he attacked her verbally but that's about it.

Yeah for sure, it could be entirely fictional. I have no doubt that Prince didnt levitate with glowing red eyes as she said in another interview and i seriously doubt he chased her with a filled sock or whatever. Something clearly went down, i wish people would stop asking her about it because we've heard what she has to say many times. I don't think any less of Prince whatever level of truth there is to the story because i know he was a human not an angel, you know? The sheer cruelty coming from people in this thread would be disturbing if it wasn't so predictable.

I certainly hope that you are not a woman speaking about another woman in that manner, because what you said is disgusting, and definitely not funny, and if that was your intention, it was an epic fail!

That's exactly how I feel about calling a mentally ill woman all kinds of disgusting names, just because she said something that you didn't like, about Prince, a celeb you didn't know and have probably never met in your life! Also, a celeb that's dead and gone, whom you can best believe, no longer gives a rat's butt about anything going on about him in this world now, and who's saying what about him!

Completely understand where you are coming from with this, but how can you be 100% certain that he doesn't? Most believe in an afterlife, if that is true, than Prince is there, and it stands to reason that perhaps, just perhaps, he is well aware of earthly happenings, and especially those that pertain to who he was in this human existence.

I am not saying any of that is true, but I cannot definitively say it is not either, I have no evidence one way or another, so the possibility of him existing, knowing, or caring about any of this is a coin toss, not an absolute.

I don't give a flying fuck what she said about Prince. I met Prince once but like you say, I didn't know him and I have a feeling that if I got to know him, I probably wouldn't like him. So if you think I'm trying to to defend Prince, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

I have, on the other hand, met Sinead O'Connor numerous times and yes, she is a mad cunt. HOWEVER, I also get the impression that everything she says and does is for attention. I don't think even she believes half of the bullshit that comes out of her mouth. She's an attention seeker. Plain and simple. And the sad fact is that nobody cares about her anymore so when she wants attention she has to resort to moaning about someone infinitely more talented than she is. Because without that link to Prince, she would have faded away years ago.

Then why do you let her upset you so much, that you resort to calling her horrible names? I think most everyone here knows that Sinead has mental issues, and every once in a while she starts acting out again, why not just ignore her, she'll fade away again in no time, why let her upset you? I guess with social media and everything, with people always going after one another, being so rude to each other, and bullying one another, that I just get sick of it! As humans we need to just start doing better, I don't know what happened to us as a society?

The reason the entire world now knows about this, is because everyone and their mother is propogating it on social media. These folks did way more advertising in getting the word out of this accusation than Sinead could ever dream of doing with her recent statement. I swear folks just dont think anymore, just let it go, dont tweet it, dont facebook it, dont anything it, dont enable it, dont give it power and it wont have any.

It has power because you all (and the social media addicts), gave it power.

OK, seriously now, with the deepest of respect.

.
Prince is dead. There is no afterlife. He’s gone. It’s not for him to care about what people are saying about him here and now. His fans care. That’s not without it’s merit. Sure, we could choose to dismiss these accusations as the ramblings of a mad women and chances are it would make no difference. However, the fact that fans may be drawing attention to this matter is a spineless excuse not to defend him. Sinead opened this can of worms and I’m not going to berate any fan who chooses to address these allegations, on social media or otherwise. This may sound ridiculous, but Prince meant something to many of us, regardless of whether we met him or not. For some of us, we still loved him like family and will treat him as such.

.

Now am I saying with 100% certainty that Sinead is lying on all accounts. No. Nobody can. However, considering how outlandish these accusations are, with no proof after all these years (no police reports, no medical evidence, not one other person around to corroborate her story), I’m going out on a limb here and defending Prince, since he doesn’t have the privilege of being able to defend himself. In turn, if anybody wants to accuse me of “blaming the victim”, I’d like to simply state that if it turns out Sinead is lying then Prince is the victim! The victim of a very nasty smear.

.

I’m normally the first person to criticise Prince for the way he treated people he worked with. It’s no secret that he had an awful temper and half the times I see his former band mates being interviewed they look like they’re still in therapy. Having said that, do you seriously expect me to believe that he chased a woman through the streets with a weapon, or broke a band members ribs? Sinead and Prince obviously had a row, it got heated, and now she’s exaggerating. Didn’t the last time she make this accusation she claim it was a band members wrist he broke? Now it’s ribs?

.

Oh, and regarding this band mate? Sinead is claiming that the band mate was in hospital at the same time this happened, right? She had this hit in 1990 and presumably met him shortly after? Were there any women in the NPG in 1990! Let’s pretend what she’s saying is true for a second. Who is she likely eluding to? Rosie Gains? Candy Dulfer? Sheila E??? All of whom worked with Prince on more that one occasion in the years to follow. Does any of this sound likely?

.

If any evidence of this type of abuse does come to light then I’ll happily eat these words and issue an apology to Sinead O Connor for what it’s worth, but I’ve said my piece for now. Feel free to tear me to shreads for it. Someone is bound to.

With respect, because I typically enjoy your posts VaultCurator, but you mention with certainty that there is no afterlife, then mention how outlandish the accusations are about Prince without proof. Saying with certainty there is no afterlife could also be deemed as an outlandish accusation by many. I am sure you can understand the hypocrisy that exists here.

Why does the burden of proof apply to her accusations but not your difinitive statement on the afterlife? If you have proof it does not exist, please share it with us.

We all love Prince, and I would like to believe he is happy in an afterlife, making a difference there as he did here, I have no proof, I only have a beflief, a hope. Prince clearly believed he was going somewhere too, as the theme is prevelant in his music and interviews throughout his entire career.

I am always willing to learn, so I am open to any evidence you have to back up your claim that there is no afterlife.

Also, in regards to Sinead, the propogation of lies serves no-one but the server themselves.

There's nothing to kill. You can see in the tone of the scant coverage of it that her story is not believed to be credible. Idiot rabid fans white knighting Prince on fb/twitter(and here) account for nothing. If they had any sense they would ignore it.

.

btw, anyone not in the UK or unfamiliar with Good Morning Britain - they are tabloid trash. The TV equivalent of the Daily Mail. Sinead should know better tbh.

[Edited 9/16/19 9:16am]


Thank you. The thing is she says something really lovely in the interview that everytime she sings NC2U she's 'with' her mother who had died when Sinead was 18. The rabid-fan thing is so boring. Focus on the positive, people.

If they can get you to believe her story about Prince beating her up... That would make everything else she says a possibility. To discredit her "testimoney" shows fear.

if she can get the estate to sign over the rights to Nothing Compares to You as compensation for the indiscresation, would all go away?

after that last performance, we all know she owns it.

now saying that, would that open up doors to other settlements?

dare i ask who more entitled the beautiful ones or the attorneys?

Hi leadline, thank you for your response. Before I reply, I’d just like to say that I also enjoy your input on this forum and admire you as a fellow fan. I hope we can respectfully agree to disagree here and not fall out, because there really is no reason to.

.

Forgive my scepticism, but I consider the notion that there is an afterlife to be more outlandish than there not being one. Obviously I have no way of proving that there isn’t one. I’m curious to know what evidence you think I could possible produce to back up this claim. Not only would I have to prove a negative, but I’d also need to solve one of the biggest mysteries of human comprehension. I just don’t believe there is one.
.
I’m really not sure how else to respond to this Leadline. Maybe I should have been more careful in my phrasing, but didn’t expect that this is what I’d get called up on. I could have just as easily of put ‘in my opinion there is no afterlife’ and it would have made no odds to me.
.
As for the burden of proof, I’m glad you brought this up. You can claim I’m being a little hypocritical here, but at the end of the day I’m not the one accusing a dead man of physical abuse. The burden of proof wouldn’t be on Prince to prove his innocents even if he were alive, nor should it be the fans defending him by proxy. If she’s making the accusation then the burden of proof should fall on Sinead.

.

You don’t have to believe me Leadline, nor would I ever ask you to. I may have no faith, but I admire many people who do and appreciate the positive influence it has on their lives. Prince included. I wonder if Sinead would grant me that same courtesy?
.
Anyway, like I say, lets not fall out over this. With any luck this will all blow over soon enough, and we can all get back to listening to funky ass music. Peace and be wild bud.
