Sinead O’Connor said the “patronising and insulting tone” of a male researcher made her to pull out of an appearance on The Late Late Show this weekend.
Sinead O’Connor, 44, had been due to appear on the first Late Late Show of the season and have a chat with host Ryan Tubridy, who she revealed she had quite a disturbing crush on in The Sunday Independent a couple of weekends back.
Ryan Tubridy, 38, is a broadcaster, writer and songwriter and presents live shows on radio and television in Ireland. Tubridy is the current host of the long-running chat programme The Late Late Show.
In an earlier bizarre blog post, the Irish singer revealed the lack of intimacy in her life and said she is “so desperate for sex” that she is turned on by the sight of inanimate objects.

Sinead O’Connor decided to pull out her appearance on the show following a patronizing phone call from a Late Late researcher, after which she deduced that she would be stitched up in front of the viewing public.
In a today blog post, Sinead O’Connor wrote:
“Sadly I have had to pull out [of The Late Late Show] as, during the course of the conversation with the (male) researcher I was asked a number of questions which I found rude, patronising, insulting and disrespectful and which wounded me enormously and showed me it would not be either a safe or respectful environment in which to place my precious self.
“I value myself too much to allow myself to be so disrespected, patronised, and treated like a <<crazy>> person.”
Sinead O’Connor added that she will never appear on the show again and expressed disappointment that she had not received an apology, writing:
“I will never as long as I live, consider appearing on The Late Late Show again.
“And I might add that no apology or act of respect has been issued by either the presenter of the show, nor any one in a leading position on the show. I am tired of all this <<Sinead is crazy>> crap. It’s a disgrace.”
Sinead O’Connor has openly written about her nonexistent intimate life in a bizarre online blog.
In a blog post entitled, “Is Sinead About To H**p Her Truck?”,Sinead O’Connor, 44, bemoans her lack of s** life, writing:
“I am in the peak of my se***l prime and way too lovely to be living like a nun. and it’s VERY depressing.”
Sinead O’Connor also claimed the man who runs her site would urge her to “take a cold shower” before revealing intimate details, but “I will of course ignore him.”

The outrageous title of her blog post was taken from a news article Sinead O’Connor said she read about a woman who “married and regularly h***s her truck.”
The Irish star wrote: “I’m beginning to understand her head space”- claiming she is so “desperate for s**”.
Then, Sinead O’Connor continued: “My s**t-uation se***lly/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good as are inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables.”
“Needless to say what I do for a living makes it hard for me to find men that only want me cuz they like my (legendary) a**e.”
The Irish singer then joked about joining a dating service, requesting no-one younger than 44, no one named Brian or Nigel and stating they “Must be blind enough to think I’m gorgeous.”
The rambling revelations are particularly unusual as Sinead O’Connor came out as a lesbian in 2000, but is writing about her search for a man.
Before she signed off, Sinead O’Connor wrote: “I must end now as I have a hot date with a banana.”
Four days later, Sinead blogged again that she had found a man, saying: “Search called off for now. Suitable man found.
“Filled by an extremely sweet, kind, very respectful, considerate but absolutely FILTHY minded, un-inhibited RUDE s** maniac named John. and no.. I don’t mean John Waters.”
John Waters is her ex-partner and father to her daughter Brigidine.
However she then discovered said John had a pregnant girlfriend and has since reopened the campaign.
Sinead O’Connor has been married three times and has four children.
