Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan going solo

Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of popular band “Cranberries” is releasing her debut solo album, “Ordinary Day” on May 7.

Australian pop star Kylie Minogue and French (ex)-boyfriend Olivier Martinez have announced their separation in a joint statement last Friday (February 2).
