Irish singer SINEAD O'CONNOR's self-imposed exile from the music industry keeps her sane, because she finds fame too "painful".
The Nothing Compares 2 U hitmaker, 40, likes to balance time in the spotlight with time for herself.

"To be a good artist you need to be terribly sensitive. If you are sensitive then you're not well-suited to the vileness of the music industry."
