Apparently, the "sheltered upbringing" Dolores O'Riordan had made it difficult for her to cope with being in The Cranberries:
"I often see young people doing that, referring to themselves in the third person."
Young people talking about themselves in the third person? "George is getting upset", for example?
The trouble is, of course, if you've created a version of yourself who is outside of yourself, convincing them that they're crazy is going to be an existential nightmare. No wonder the Cranberries albums got so terrible so quickly, if Dolores had been too busy trying to convince herself that she was simultaneously crazy and sane while they were being recorded.
And, of course, you have absolutely no choice but to go to LA. None whatsoever.
Maybe someone should write a book or something that warns people that LA is a nasty place, do you think?
