    Everybody needs to STFU about “mental health” issues and just wish Sinead to be safe and strong and to be her own best friend right now. Some of the social media commentary about Sinead being missing is just disgusting.

    Cop On.

    The gossipy tit-bits and media coverage of Sinéad O’Connor’s mental health is far more absurd than the woman’s movements and statements. As if they are shockingly wanting her to be scoffed at and to fall down rather than climb up and prosper. Wish her well, but I think families should be reading less about ‘celebs’ and tune in more to the anxieties and well-being of their own kin during this unprecedented time of mental health awareness.

      Awareness is all well and good but the government also needs to actually put some funding into mental health facilities. I guess people suffering from mental illness don’t vote.

        I agree, and that point will be made well here. I just wanted to raise the wee point of checking in with your loved ones for 30 mins for a chat and not wasting one’s time in reading stories about those we don’t know. Anyone who had a lonely elderly relative during the ‘phone conversation’ days might remember marathon chats on the blower rather than clicking on TMZ and the like. Spreading happy vibes just when people in your family might need it – that kind of stuff.

          It’s troll-y but not incorrect it has to be said. It is a great soapbox for media types to be clambering on.

          Mental Health issues will be here long after Bressie et al lose interest in it.

          No, is bull and it’s deliberately distracting. Classic troll.

          People may have their pants in a twist over Bressi for some reason but given that he’s been taking about it for at least two years of not longer, I doubt he’s giving up any time soon. The more people talk the better, not talking is killing people. Easier to cut someone down then see they might be doing so good the world.

        Yes, that’s what I sensed. They really want her to fall and join the set of talented but troubled. Makes the ‘celeb’ watchers feel better about themselves. Sickening reporting.

    She’s having an awful time these last few years God love her, hope there won’t be any bad news here.

    Let us remember that in a custody battle, a judge deemed her to be the more sane of her and John Waters. So she has that going for her at least.

    Sinéad needs to grow da duck up.

    Sorry if that upsets some but she is a grown woman with full access to (private) mental health care which is more than most of us. If Sinéad really wants to change the world then she should get her self-indulgent ass back into the studio and use the creativity God gave her.

      Jesus. Think about what you’re saying there. You’re judging someone with mental health problems for not acting rationally. FFS.

    2. Guy Bague

      Why infer mental health into the issue at all? What gives everyone the right to assume a “mental health” issue.

      If someone lost weight suddenly would you shout about cancer or AIDs?

      For all you know Sinead could have been playing geo-caching or just wanted to tune out. Mind your own business.

      Found “safe and well”, some old – the second episode in recent times. “they stop their noses at the blown rose that paid homage to the bud”. Could that have something to do with it?

    4. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      Eh, SOQky….

      Sinéad owes you nothing, except thanks for spelling her name properly.
      -Remember that next time some**** puts their f*st u* y*** a****,

      You’re a knock-off version of a Muppet.

    I am glad she has been located.

    And here we go with the BS on social media and the Sunday Independent and Irish Mail on Sunday…. “It’s time to have a mature discussion about mental health and lack of government funding.”

    Until the next hot topic of interest comes along: A review of Beyonce’s Lemonade for example.

    1. some old queen

      Indeed. Mental Health is a very serious issue and raising awareness is a positive thing but in Sinéad’s case I am very cynical because there has always has been such an attention seeking trait.

      If I am wrong then I apologise but it is up to Sinéad to access the treatment she needs and unlike most people, she should have no problem in doing so.

  7. Smashmouth

    Glad to hear she’s safe and well

    Arsenio Hall on the other hand must be disappointed

  8. Smashmouth

    Reading the comments on TMZ is making me feel ill

    I despair for humanity

    Absolute scum

  9. SPANX

    Good to hear. Don’t mind the fuppers, Sinead – always been the coolest act in town. And dead sound, too.

    I have a sister named Sinéad and I always told her when she was growing up, if only we were O’Connor, rather than O’Neill then maybe we could jump on a same- name-alikes type tv show and make some serious money. Unfortunately, there is no such tv show. I’m glad she’s okay, we all have our wobbly days, but a celebrity can’t do it without the world asking questions. It’s early in her career, but it’s still my fave Sinéad.
