|New and Old, what a difference!|
Sinead O'connnor, 'Nothing copares 2 U 1990' singer and songwriter, sang again in Ireland after long five years with a stunning new look. There is no sign of her famous bald head, pixie-like figure and penchant for controversy. To the surprise and doubt of her fans, she debuted a chopped, shoulder-length black hair and glasses, and showed off her fuller figure in a blazer and cropped top that revealed her belly button through sheer fabric. No doubt this 44 year old Irish singer has her honey voice intact.
At Saturday's show, O'Connor lent her incredible voice to guest with reggae singer Natty Wailer.
She also said, "I've been here in Bray for five years and have always been a bit jealous of bands I've seen here. It's everyone's childhood dream to play on a bandstand."
She came out as a lesbian in 2005. "I'm three-quarters heterosexual, a quarter gay," the singer confessed to Entertainment Weekly. In The Oprah Winfrey Show on October 4, 2007 episode, O'Connor revealed that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003 and also disclosed that she had attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday on 8 December 1999.
In January 2010, O'Connor performed a duet with R&B singer Mary J. Blige produced by former A Tribe Called Quest member Ali Shaheed Muhammad entitled "This Is To Mother You". The proceeds of the song's sales were donated to the organization GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services). The singer is now touring Europe and cropped top belly-sharing ensemble.
