A new interview entitled “Dolores O’Riordan: I’ve no regrets about The Voice, but I NEED a break” was published today on Sundayworld.com showing that Dolores did overall enjoy her experience on the TV show but is quite happy that it is now reaching an end
She reveals that it was all about doing something different to have a good laugh – which got her closer to Kian Egan with whom she should stay in touch – but in no way to make money nor to promote herself to a new, younger, audience.
She told the Sundayworlds that Kian Egan “is just as bonkers as me and we have the craic. I don’t have the same relationship with Jamelia and Bressie. They would be more stiff than us […] I think I will stay in touch with him but probably not with the other two.”
The journalist then explains that Dolores has actually been spending most of the money she received from the production company to commute back and forth between Dublin and her home in rural Ontario. A weekly schedule which she admits was exhausting, hence the fact she was in a hurry “to fly home after the final and not have to worry about saying goodbye to my family within a day or two“.
This article also comes as a confirmation that Dolores was not willing to perform at any time on the set of The Voice: “And, no, I will not be performing at the final. I just don’t want to. I’m not there to sing. I’m there to coach“.
She even confesses that she did not like the idea of having her contestants singing some her songs too much: “One of the girls at one point wanted to sing one of The Cranberries songs but it didn’t work so we dropped it. I don’t really care if they want to do it. But if they are doing to do it, they’ll do it right” she said, laughing.
