As you know, Sinéad O’Connor is a pop singer from the Republic Of Ireland and is well-known for her re-make of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U” which she dedicated to her son that she lost.
Nothing Compares 2 U
Although dedicated to her son, the tears O’Connor let out in the music video were because she was grieving for her mother who had died in a car accident in the mid 80s.
So why is Sinéad O’Connor depressed?
- O’Connor had a long-term relationship with late funk Rn’B singer Prince Rogers Nelson. Prince died from an accidental drug overdose last year in April and even though O’Connor and Prince were no longer together, Prince was always her best friend.
- O’Connor was bullied for so many years for having a shaved head and was accused of being a lesbian despite being married several times to men, being a mother, being an Irish Catholic and is a church minister.
- In 1985, O’Connor’s mother was involved in a car accident and died due to fatal injuries.
- Sinéad O’Connor’s son went missing and was never found and was presumed “dead”, O’Connor’s re-make of “Nothing Compares 2 U” was dedicated to her son despite the song lyrics being about a relationship.
- O’Connor can no longer have any children because she had to have a hysterectomy due to endless gynaecological problems
I think it’s fair to say Sinéad O’Connor has been through so much pain in her life that she is no longer able to cope with the emotional turmoil.
Recently O’Connor uploaded a video to Facebook saying how suicidal she felt because she’s so lonely and she feels like life is unbearable. Fans were devastated.
Will Sinéad O’Connor survive?
O’Connor may be severely depressed but I know deep down she can beat this. She’s one of the strongest female celebrities I know and if there’s something I definitely know well about O’Connor is that she loves her fans, family and friends and she won’t give up on them, that being said: She’s very spiritual, she’s dedicated to her faith, she won’t give up without a fight!
