year of birth[edit]

the [|IMDB] says 1962. What's right?

They seem to agree now. --Lenoxus 20:28, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

I remember back in the 90s there was a small amount of controversy about her age…she had been promoted as another young female singer/songwriter like Alanis Morissette and she refused to talk about how old she was for a while, then I remember reading an article from later where she said she regretted being secretive about her age and that it was due to pressure from the record label. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.107.186.18 (talk) 22:52, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Joan osbourne1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Joan osbourne1.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Sexuality[edit]

exactly why is her sexualiy an issue worthy of discussion here? Because Philwelch will be on here soon nominating her to be a gay icon.--72.154.193.191 (talk) 17:07, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree. I am going to remove this section since I can hardly see the relevance to her career. --Jsderwin (talk) 16:34, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Really? Her sexuality is considerably more relevant to this singer's career than the fact she's had a child...which is included here. Seems the 'de-gaying' of wikipedia continues. Vauxhall1964 (talk) 18:46, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

I think it's worth keeping because it contains a quote and not just speculation or a third-party comment. it's really one of the few facts on her personal life in the entry. I would sooner suggest changing the heading to "Personal Life." 12.162.122.6 (talk) 19:21, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Interview that could be used[edit]

http://www.philzone.com/interviews/joan/index2.html is an interview of Joan Osborne that could provide information on her. It confirms the birth of her daughter as well. Fridae'§Doom | Talk to me 10:56, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
