Tis odd, I cannot see beauty in Sinead, especially in the photo you just posted, I see the stereotype of a woman trying to attract other women and to stay away, lol.

Well, I am sure that I can be forgiven, lol.

I still don't see her as girly here, either. I do kinda read faces though, somehow, I just sense things.

I see Sinead, which is not new news, the poor thing, in this photo, as damaged and insecure.

Which indeed she is. I've never liked her or her singing.

She's had more than her share of problems in her life.

But she's the bravest performer I can think of.

From Wikipedia:
On 3 October 1992, O'Connor appeared on Saturday Night Live as a musical guest.
She sang an a cappella version of Bob Marley’s "War", intended as a protest against sexual abuse in the Catholic Church—O'Connor referred to child abuse rather than racism.
She then presented a photo of Pope John Paul II to the camera while singing the word "evil", after which she tore the photo into pieces, said
"Fight the real enemy", and threw the pieces towards the camera...

Two weeks after the Saturday Night Live appearance, she was set to perform "I Believe in You" at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary tribute concert in Madison Square Garden.
She was greeted by a thundering mixture of cheers and jeers.
During the booing, Kris Kristofferson told her not to "let the bastards get you down", to which she replied, "I'm not down."
The noise eventually became so loud that O'Connor saw no point in starting the scheduled song.
She called for the keyboard player to stop and the microphone to be turned up, and then screamed over the audience with an improvised, shouted rendition of "War".
This time, she sang the song, stopping just after the part in which the lyrics talk about child abuse, emphasizing the point of her previous action.
She then looked straight to the audience for a second and left the stage.
Kristofferson then comforted her...


The image of that brave, lonely figure, defiantly standing there, while a large, ignorant section of the audience jeered & booed her will stay with me forever.

She wasn't courting publicity, she was genuinely concerned about the cover-up machinations of the Catholic Church when she undertook this career-damaging stance, when nobody else was even discussing it.

And the irony is that she was right !

A new Pope eventually apologised for the Catholic church's cover-up.

It was the ill-informed section of that audience who owed her the apology... but she never got it...

Poor thing, along with being raised with an abusive mother. Sinead stood up, doing the right thing, no matter what. Makes one wonder how much she has been through.

Sinead is a very very special woman.

It shows that everyone has their story and should be treated that way. Good on Kris!

Thank you, Colin.

Yes, well done !

He sang "I hope I die before I get old" but he's 74 now, so he never did...

This was released early 1966 as a single b-side, just a few months after the release of The Who's classic.

They were from UK, too :
