New look of Sinead O’Connor

New photos of an unrecognizable Sinead O’Connor are creating a big buzz on the Web.
The Irish singer, known for having a shaved head and for her 1990 cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” is now sporting a fuller figure, glasses and longer hair as she tours this summer.
For example, O’Connor (44) was performing as a backup singer for reggae artist Natty Wailer during the Bray Seaside Music Festival when she was photographed on Saturday.
She was dressed in all black, wearing a partly sheer top, blazer and pants with large cross around her neck.
In 1992, O’Connor made headlines for tearing up a photo of Pope John Paul II during a “Saturday Night Live” appearance to protest sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
Her last album (“Throw Down Your Arms”) was released in 2005. O’Connor (now a mother of four) is currently on tour in Europe.

For those who know the singer Sinead O’Conor from the early 90′s, 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 90′s 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.

Sinead O’Connor’s 5 Most Memorable Moments:
1 – Saturday Night Live (1992).
The singer performed the song “War” a cappella. Song lyrics decry child abuse and during the last line – Children fight/ we find it necessary/ we know we will win/ we have confidence in the victory of good over evil.” On the word “evil,” she brought out a picture of Pope John Paul II and ripped it up. After that, she said “Fight the real enemy.”
2 – Bod Dylan 30th Anniversary concert (1992).
Two weeks after shredding the Pope on Saturday Night Live, O’Connor was loudly booed when taking the stage at the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert at Madison Square Garden. Kris Kristofferson introduced her as an “artist who’s name has become synonymous with courage and integrity” and hugged her fiercely after the performance. She was originally slated to sing Dylan’s “I Believe in You,” but sang/shouted “War” when the catcalls would not subside.
3 – The Butcher boy (1997).
O’Connor was cast as the Virgin Mary in Neil Jordan’s dark 1997 film about a mentally disturbed boy. O’Conner’s Mary comforts the child, whose mother commits suicide.
4 – Larry King Live (2010).
The singer is cut off several times by the CNN host during a discussion on the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. O’Connor wears a red shirt and a large crucifix for the interview in which she insists that Pope Benedict, aka Joseph Ratzinger, order “every person living who did not go to the police” if they knew about the abuse to be punished as accessories to the crimes.
5 – The Oprah Winfrey show (2007).
O’Connor admits on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she’s been diagnosed as bipolar and that she attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday. She said her life is completely different now that she’s on medication, “Everything just because too much, and the best way I can describe it to you is you’re so sad, just terribly sad, that you’re like a bucket of water with holes in it. Every pore of you is crying and you don’t even uderstand why or what. I actually kind of died and got born again as a result of taking the meds and having a chance to, you know, build a life.”
