Sinead O'Connor Threw Out Son's Eminem Album
Irish singer Sinead O'Connor once threw an Eminem album out of the window - after her son started copying the rapper's bad language. The Nothing Compares 2 U star reveals her eldest child, Jake, from her first marriage to producer John Reynolds, was a big fan of the Stan hit-maker and he rapidly picked up on the swear words used in the rapper's profanity-laden tracks.
However, when the teenager's behavior got out of control, O'Connor decided to get rid of the CD once and for all.
She tells the New York Post's columnist Cindy Adams, "My son had what I call his Eminem Summer and, suddenly, for about three weeks, he became very rude. He was soaking up all those lyrics. So I chucked the record off the balcony."
