The Cranberries frontwoman DOLORES O'RIORDAN was not prepared for the band's success because she had a sheltered upbringing. The singer says she was not mentally prepared for fame and describes attention the Irish rock band attracted was like a "big slap in the head". She says, "I used to say, 'That's the entertainer, but I'm not that person'. That's how I used to try and deal with it, which isn't very healthy really. "I often see young people doing that, referring to themselves in the third person. At the time you think that's okay. But later on you go, 'That's crazy.' "But if you grow up in the green fields, and you rarely go into the city, you're so overprotected that when you do go to LA it's almost a bigger slap in the head."
