She is in the news again, converted to islam and changed her name (again) to to Shuhada' Davitt. What an odd life she has lived...

Re: Sinead O'Connor attempts suicide

So, she decided to just commit career suicide?

Fucking why?

I donít get why people convert to Islam. I read the Quran, and itís just a bunch of rambling bullshit and gibberish. Makes the fucking Bible read like great literature, which is no small feat.

I wish she had been stable enough to have had a career with consistent output. I still love The Lion and the Cobra. Her vocals on Mandinka were incredible.

I didn't get it at first either.
I've seen some documentaries on young westerners, usually former Christians, becoming Muslims.
Why?
If Christianity didn't make sense to you, how does Islam? Or any religion for that matter?

I think it comes down to community. People want a change in their social circle, they want new friends, they want to feel different, so they join a different religion.
For young people, Islam is probably viewed as the "cool" religion, whereas Christianity is seen as old and white, the religion of their parents.
Becoming Muslim can also be viewed as somewhat new, and rebellious.

In O'Connor's case, maybe she's just trying to get some headlines. All these celebrities try to reinvent themselves to stay relevant. Madonna was sexing Catholic saints in her videos, and to switch it up, she started reading the Kabbalah. Snoop Dogg became a rasta and called himself Snoop Lion for five minutes.

That's a great album, and song. Much better than the followup, where she found bigger success.

IDK, her voice sounds sort of fried, but I do appreciate the passion behind it. That smile and acknowledgement at the end though...

Yeah her voice is fried but she sounded decent. It's great to see Mother Teresa alive and doing well.

She did say in a past interview she would never perform "Nothing Compares" again but I bet that paycheck was quite nice.
