The 50-year-old Irish singer retracted her comments about the 61-year-old American comedian and Prince in a statement to TMZ after facing a defamation lawsuit from Hall.
Arsenio I’ve reported you.” On Wednesday, O’Connor, 50, released a statement retracting the claims.
Anyone imagining Prince was not a longtime hard drug user is living in cloud cuckoo land.
Vulture met up with De Laria at the Metropolitan bar in Williamsburg for a beer, to discuss being called a “bulldyke” in the pages of The New Yorker, her out-there masturbation scene, and hitting on Natasha Lyonne. ” I couldn’t believe (a) you were on a prime-time late-night talk show, and (b) that someone said that on TV. People remember it because I said “dyke.” It was a battle. Somebody counted and I said the word 47 times in the nine minutes I was on the show. If Emily Nussbaum calls me a bulldyke, I laugh and say, “Thank you.” If Pat Robertson calls me a bulldyke, I rip his nuts off. I was so happy for the mention, because the cast is so huge, and I got mentioned in almost every review, and in a very positive way.
Everyone is not only watching Orange Is the New Black, but totally obsessed. That would be during the four and a half minutes of stand-up and five minutes on the couch. It is your dyke duty, you realize, to tell us about working with Jodie Foster [who directed episode three, “Lesbian Request Denied”].
"I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince's drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince's death," the singer added.
