For those who know the singer Sinead O’Conor from the early 90s, when she was bald and bold, her recent look may come as a shock. The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer has given a performance in County Wicklow, Ireland, for the first time in five years and she revealed a striking difference in her looks, Us Magazine reports.
Singer Sinead O’Connor became famous with the 90s single “Nothing Compares 2 U”. Her unique powerful voice, her shaved head and big green eyes – all these have become iconic. Of Irish origin, the singer was not seen publicly a lot in the past five years. Her last album, named Theology, was released in 2007.
On Saturday, O’Connor, 44, has given a performance in her hometown of Bray, in County Wicklow, Ireland. She was dressed in black, wearing a blazer, a sheer black blouse and black pants. She revealed a significantly fuller figure and let a golden crucifix rest on her belly. Once with the head shaved, O’Connor was wearing a chopped shoulder length black haircut and glasses. She was completely different from the image she had two decades ago.
Despite her looks, the singer says she has “really enjoyed” being on stage again. “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 told Ireland’s The Independent after the show.
Sinead O’Connor is now the mother of four children. After coming out as a lesbian in 2005, she had a change of heart later when, talking to Entertainment Weekly, she corrected the information. She said she was actually “three-quarters heterosexual, a quarter gay.”
In 2007, while the singer was invited to Oprah Winfrey show, she revealed she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder since 2003.
