Singer Sinead O'Connor is looking for a man, but adds women are welcome to apply.

The 44-year-old Irish singer-songwriter rose to fame in the late eighties with the debut of the Lion and the Cobra. Her 1990 track Nothing Compares 2 U earned her worldwide fans.

In an op-ed appearing in the Irish Sunday Independent published on Sunday, August 21, she revealed she's desperate for a man.

“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) arse. Yet I am in the peak of my sexual prime and way too lovely to be living like a nun, and it's VERY depressing.”

O'Connor answered a follow up question in a blog post a few days later.

“I've been repeatedly asked will I 'do anal sex'. Let me make it very clear.. Any man I contemplate has to be into anal sex.. It was a family paper so they wouldn't have printed it but let me now take time to make VERY clear that yes I 'do anal' and in fact I would be deeply unhappy if 'doing anal' wasn't on the menu, amongst everything else$$ So if u don't like 'the difficult brown'.. Don't apply... I've had reasonable complaints from lesbians that they have been excluded. This was terribly remiss of me and I would now like to make it clear that women will also be very much considered. As will Brians and Nigels.. Since there were complaints there too.”

On Sunday, she added: “I must say, my greatest amusement this week is that on this day last week I had 3 followers on Twitter. Since I mentioned anal sex, I have almost 2000!”
