1. She loves shopping.

Even Enya needs a little shop therapy when she has the Caribbean blues. Here she is shoe shopping and serving some Laurie Metcalf realness.

No medieval gowns here, just sensible bootcut jeans and life-long friendship.

6. She sings in a made-up language.

Some Enya songs are sung in "Loxian," a language invented by Enya collaborator Roma Ryan. Let's be honest, we all forget lyrics and slip into gibberish sometimes. Just ask Young Thug.

7. She performs in 10 different languages.

Which technically means she relates to more people, even if Latin is dead and one of the other languages is fictional.

8. She lives in a castle.

9. The castle is near a "crack cocaine hell hole."

According to the Irish Independent, "a drugs ‘hell hole’ is blighting one of Ireland’s most beautiful seaside resorts near the homes of stars such as Bono and Enya." That makes her at least a little more relatable, right?

10. She’s worth €115 million (that’s $146,466,300 US).

While Enya is very wealthy, the fact remains that we all use money, and it doesn't get more relatable than that. If it helps, The Irish Independent mentions she’s “partial to cats."
