Why she might be annoying:

    Howard Stern said she always appears angry. Gary Dell'Abate went one step further saying she looks like an angry lesbian who was not a lesbian (October 23, 2001).

    She was turned down twice by A&M, until finally accepted (1983).
    Although her debut album sold ¾ of million copies, it had no hits, with the possible exception of 'Marlene on the Wall' charting in the UK.
