Some guys ask for your sign. Other guys use trite lines like, "If I could reinvent the alphabet, I'd put U and I together."

And then there's Brody Ryan.

After begging model Piper Kennedy for her number in Starbucks, "Singer/Song Writer/Designer/Photographer/Producer" (according to his Twitter, @sirBRODAG) Brody Ryan sent her the below awkward video where he's smiling and sort of massaging his face (to Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home").

Kennedy sent it to friends who posted it on the Internet, and #StarbucksDrakeHands was born, with copycats (and actual cats) imitating his creepy, face-touching video. Scroll down for more randomness from this week:

Sinéad O'Connor: Miley Cyrus Fans Are Urging Me to 'Commit Suicide'

Originally posted 10/08/2013 03:00PM

The feuding between Sinéad O'Connor and Miley Cyrus seemingly can't stop.

The "We Can't Stop" singer, 20, was the subject of a fourth open letter by O'Connor, 46, who on Tuesday went on an approximate 30-paragraph rant, which mostly listed suicide statistics.

"As a result of what you did, I have had numerous communications from people urging me to commit suicide," the "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer wrote. "Not to mention, I have been the subject of literally thousands of abusive articles and or comments left after articles, which state that I and therefore all perceived mentally ill people, should be bullied and be invalidated."

It's certainly been a busy week for Sinéad O'Connor.

The Irish singer – who got into a war of words with Miley Cyrus earlier this week after reaching out to the 20-year-old in an open letter advising her not to "prostitute" herself – is now worrying about the death of rock 'n' roll.

And she knows who killed it – Simon Cowell.

In an interview on The Late Late Show in Ireland on Friday, the 46-year-old blasted the X Factor judge.

The war of words between singers Miley Cyrus and Sinéad O'Connor has escalated into a potential legal battle.

Sinéad O'Connor Advises Miley Cyrus, 'Your Body Is For You'

Miley Cyrus recently said in her weed-is-the-best-drug-on-earth Rolling Stone interview that she based her instantly infamous "Wrecking Ball" video on the haunting, tearful image of Sinéad O'Connor in the video for her 1990 mega-hit, "Nothing Compares 2 U."

Yet it seems the quirky Irish musician is less than flattered.

O'Connor, 46, penned an open letter to Cyrus, 20, on her website, reports E! Online, and O'Connor makes it clear that she believes swinging naked on a wrecking ball and twerking your way to the top isn't a recipe for a healthy, fulfilled existence.

Sinead O'Connor Swears Off Romance, Calls Off Marriage Again!

Originally posted 01/13/2012 01:30PM

Love is not for Sinead O'Connor. Neither, she says, are the journalists of her native Ireland.

"Certain sections of our media are pure evil," the singer, whose lively website has chronicled her marital travails, states in a blog post Friday.

"These people, along with others caused enormous damage deliberately and maliciously to my innocent flower of a husband, purely because he was with me," O'Connor writes of husband Barry Herridge – whom she wed on Dec. 8 in Las Vegas, then separated from 16 days later.

Perhaps she spoke too soon?

Sinead O'Connor recently announced the end of her 16-day marriage to Barry Herridge, but the two appear to be pretty chummy still.

The couple was spotted walking arm-in-arm together after leaving a pub in Ireland on Wednesday.

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer married in a drive-thru wedding in Las Vegas on Dec. 8. Just weeks later, O'Connor wrote on her website that her marriage was over, blaming pressures placed upon him by "certain people in his life" not to be with her.

Sinead O'Connor Reveals What Killed Her 16-Day Marriage

It looks like Sinead O'Connor is walking away from her 16-day marriage bolder but wiser.

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer, 45, announced her split from fourth husband, Barry Herridge, on Monday, 16 days after the two tied the knot in a well-planned Dec. 8 drive-through wedding in Las Vegas. Now, O'Connor tells Britain's Sun tabloid, "I don't think I will even date anyone."

What sabotaged the union? "It felt like I was living in a coffin. It was going to be a coffin for both of us, and I saw him crushed," she says of Herridge, 38. "The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man."
