If you weren’t exiled to another universe or lived under a rock in 1990, then you know about and heard have Sinead O’Connor “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Born Sinead Marie Bernadette O’Connor in Dublin, Ireland on December 8 1966, her version of the Prince-penned song garnered her international fame.
The track is taken from the album “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got.” The album earned O’Connor Grammy Award nominations for Record of the Year and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. Her other hit singles include “Mandinka,” “I Want Your (Hands on Me)” and “Troy.”
So What Happened to Sinead O’Connor?
In O’Connor’s own words: “I don’t do anything [to] cause trouble. It just so happens that what I do naturally causes trouble. I’m proud to be a trouble maker.” She has a way of ruffling a few furthers that’s for sure. Even Frank Sinatra once threatened to “kick her ass.”
She once claimed she wouldn’t perform if the US national anthem was played before her performance, and she withdrew from consideration after she got four Grammy Award nominations, oh and there’s also that whole ripping-a-picture-of-the-Pope in a 1992 “Saturday Night Live” performance thing.

O’Connor never quite succeeded in restoring the mass appeal from her monster hit album, so she has instead kept herself busy with getting herself into trouble while maintaining her singing career. Getting into politics and being ordained as a priest then rocking a collar with leather pants are only a few of her latest adventures.
She also called U2 terrorists for the way they released “Songs of Innocence,” and went on to write a new national anthem for Ireland because why not. All this and she still managed to release “I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss” in 2014. Her tenth studio album, critics called it O’Connor’s most musically adventurous endeavor.
