[Untitled][edit]

Reads like promo copy, not a biography.

I agree. No time right now, but I'll edit it later - I think I can track down some NPOV biographical material to flesh it out. Should probably be merged in anyway, though POV still applies then. NickBarlow 07:57, 5 Dec 2004 (UTC)

This artice contradicts the article about Vancouver, Washington, which says that Ana was born or lived there. Furste

Absolute date?[edit]

 While in a mostly gay band, Ana is straight and has lived with boyfriend Seth Kirby for the past three years.

- doesn't say when that was written, better put a real year there (131.130.121.106 17:42, 25 October 2006 (UTC))

- Indeed, i think you need to site that. Squad'nLeedah 20:04, 29 November 2006 (UTC) - Cite that is.

- The article/promo states that Ana is bisexual. I have read an interview where she states that she is heterosexual (http://www.concertlivewire.com/interviews/scissorint.htm) I'd suggest that the change is made and cites the above article. User:Thurston_d

I've done that now, you could have done it yourself though as you've got a reliable cite there. (Also, the "bisexual" edit was made by a vandal, so it should really have been reverted before. 172.143.71.165 21:58, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Removal of Link[edit]

Id suggest removing that link to the Fansite. Theres nothing on it but a few pictures and a "Page under construction, come back soon" message. Sorry, forgot to sign the last. Squad'nLeedah 20:03, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Removed the link. The site quite obviously belongs to the original author of this page, and is a REALLY badly made fansite, containing nothing but press release photos, and photos of the page author wearing fan-wear. Squad'nLeedah 02:34, 25 December 2006 (UTC)

Pronunciation of Name?[edit]

I've always assumed it was pronounced the same as "Anna" (re Animatronic), but in several interviews she has been introduced by TV presenters as "Aah-na" Matronic, without her correcting them. She might just be too polite to tell them, but now people are starting to refer to her as "Aarna Matronic", which sounds silly. 172.143.71.165 21:43, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

It's Ah-Nuh, but with short vowels. Although not very clear, she says this herself on "Message From Ana Matronic" which features on the UK release of the debut album. I also remember reading this in an early interview with her, but can't track it down now. But the audio recording, which I have just this moment listened to, is pretty conclusive. --GetThePapersGetThePapers (talk) 16:31, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Surname[edit]

Apparently she wasn't born Ana Lynch, Lynch was her stepfather's name which she later took. Her father's surname seems to be something of a mystery. Mind you, this info's come from the Daily Mail, not exactly known for their accuracy! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-1308325/Ana-Matronic-The-Scissor-Sisters-star-gaining-husband-losing-stone.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mspritch (talkcontribs) 00:57, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Birthplace[edit]

According to this article, she was born in San Francisco: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1287535/Scissor-Sisters-desperate-prove-cut-it.html

This also jibes with a comment she made at the Night Work tour show in Oakland about being "from" San Francisco. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:470:1F05:164:A538:A5F:228B:91D (talk) 05:59, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
