SINEAD O'CONNOR shocked fans in Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday night (29NOV05) when she blasted the man behind her biggest hit live on stage. Performing reggae songs from her new album THROW DOWN YOUR ARMS, the eccentric Irish singer took offence when one fan repeatedly screamed out for her international hit NOTHING COMPARES 2 U. She initially ignored the requests, until another fans screamed for PRINCE, the writer of the song, at which point she hissed, "F**k that f**king midget."
Prince replied, "What is essential is invisible to the eye. It's only with the heart that one can see clearly."
