Singer Sinead O'Connor has penned a desperate column for the Irish Independent newspaper in the hope it will snag her a lover.
The lonely hitmaker has gone public with her desire to find a new man and has listed her requirements for a boyfriend.
In the column she writes, "My situation, sexually/affectionately speaking, is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good. I tell you, yams are looking like the winners."
And she adds, "I am in desperate need of a very sweet sex-starved man."
Listing her requirements, O'Connor writes: "He must be no younger than 44... Must not be named Brian or Nigel... Must be very snuggly (and) has to like his mother."
The singer is also keen to find a hirsute lover, adding, "I like me a hairy man, so buffed and/or waxed (men) need not apply."
