Dolores O'Riordan: "Rumored Favorite" of the Pope!
Date: November 25, 2001
Apparently it won't be such a merry Christmas at the Vatican for musicians Elton John and George Michael and poor-excuse-for-a-pseudo-musician Britney Spears, accoring to an article on Worldpop.com. All three have been rejected for next month's concert for the Pope at the Vatican on the fifteenth of next month, where the Cranberries will be performing.
A spokesperson for the Pope claimed Spears was "too sexy" while John and Michael were turned away due to their strong ties with the homosexual community.
Even more enticing, the article claims that, "Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan is rumoured to be a particular favourite of the Pope, even being offered a solo spot at the concert." A generous compliment to Dolores, although the entire band is expected to be there (Noel's presence pending, however).
