Nothing Compares 2 Me

Ah, sweet, shy, retiring Sinead O'Connor - tortured by her beauty:

"Fame and beauty together have proved a curse for me. Fame, especially. It's the reason I keep leaving the game. I find it painful, I really do.

"To be a good artist you need to be terribly sensitive. If you are sensitive then you're not well-suited to the vileness of the music industry."

Luckily, the buckets of cash she earns do offset some of the more negative effects of the curse.
