Sinead O'Connor has said she will marry her fourth husband in a "drive-thru wedding" in Las Vegas on her 45th birthday.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer - who in August declared herself "desperate for sex" and advertised for a man on Twitter, posting a list of requirements on her blog - spoke to The Irish Independent at Dublin Airport on Wednesday just before she and 38-year-old therapist Barry Herridge jetted off to tie the knot.

Sinead said: "Myself and Barry decided to get married in Las Vegas because we wanted a proper rock 'n' roll wedding.

"I've been married before, but I've never had my dream wedding in Vegas. I wanted to do it there because it's casual, quick, not religious and, most of all, very romantic."

The mother-of-four revealed she met Barry after he replied to her online ad for a man.

She said: "Barry sent me this wonderful email, which just took my heart away. It had to be him."

Sinead posted a picture on her blog of herself and Barry at the airport, promised to update them with pictures of her "absolute dream wedding ceremony" and declared herself a "very happy girl".

The marriage comes just a week after the Irish singer joked to Hot Press magazine: "I've been married three times, really I should only have been married once. And no-one should be married more than f***in' twice, to be honest."

The couple are to delay their honeymoon as Sinead is due back in Dublin on Saturday to attend a concert marking the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
