The last time that Linda Martin became an online sensation, she had the whole country agog as they watched the Late Late Show.

When Aslan’s Billy McGuinness told the Eurovision star that she shouldn’t be on the Eurosong judging panel, she famously went into the audience to call him ‘an odious little man’.

Appearing on Cutting Edge with Brendan O’Connor, she joined broadcaster Colm Hayes and columnist Jennifer O’Connell to talk about the hot topics of the week.

First up, the singer tackled the etiquette of having children at your wedding.

Not a fan of tiny guests, the 71-year-old said: ‘I was at a wedding and children had been invited and the children were not supervised and the kids started making noise and running up and down the aisle … These kids were just beyond out of control.’

Next up for discussion was Leaving Neverland, the controversial documentary on the alleged abuse caused by popstar Michael Jackson.

While her fellow panelist Colm Hayes was applauded for not playing the singer’s songs on his Nova programme, Linda said that the artist’s work was still valid.

Prompting a huge reaction online, she said: ‘I believe music should transcend everything. It shouldn’t be involved.’

However, her reaction to Amy Schumer’s recent nude photography made the internet explode.

Discussing the comic’s recent photo shoot for a New York Times article featuring a very naked, very pregnant Schumer running through a rainy park, the panel were divided on the pictures.

While Jennifer O’Connell praised the star for showing the real pregnancy experience, Linda was not impressed, and said that all expectant mothers should cover up.

‘To me that’s just … I don’t want to look at it. I don’t want to look at little tight dresses which really show off their bump,’ she said.

While the controversial singer had people chatting all night, it was this comment that prompted the most tweets, with one jokingly asking if she wanted mums to be dressed as Handmaidens.
