*To say Sinead O’Connor has a mad crush on Dave Chappelle would be an understatement.
The singer-songwriter who famously ripped a picture of the Pope on “Saturday Night Live” has talked about her affinity for both Chappelle and actor Robert Downey Jr. in the past, but she’s never gone into detail about it — until now.
Her infatuation with Downey “is all about lust,” she told Billboard for her Aug. 16 cover issue. “He’s gorgeous, and I think I could love him. But Dave Chappelle I actually love. I’d have to abandon Robert if it came down to him and Dave. I watch Chappelle on the telly, and I’m just like a Justin Bieber fan He is a genius with balls the size of Alaska. I can identify with that. My own balls are quite large.”
But O’Connor says she’s crushing on Chappelle for more than his talent.
“As we say in Ireland, he’s a ride,” she says. “It means that if he were a bike, I’d be riding him around the country because he’s so gorgeous.”
O’Connor says she has never met Chappelle, and perhaps it’s best if that never happens: “I would be in jail now for sexual assault.”
