Sinead returns in search of the Roots
Sinead O'conner aka Skinhead O'Conner aka Sinead O'Comeback has sprung out of retirement and has made an album of Reggae cover versions. She retired back in 2003 claiming that she no longer wanted to be in the media spotlight.
She was previously ordained a Latin Tridentine Church priestess by a rebel bishop and adopted the religious name Mother Bernadette Mary. In 1999, O'Connor abandoned her vow of celibacy about three months after becoming a priestess she said "I meant well by doing the celibacy thing but it doesn't work for me because I need love and affection."
Declaring that her latest mission was to "rescue God from religion" she also expressed gratitude to the Rasta people, "because I am one of those human beings who would not be alive today if it was not for the teachings of Rastafari." That would be interesting to decipher in depth, methinks!
The Arizona Republic remarks; 'Sinead O'Conner embraces the Rastafarian faith; Rastafarians wonder what they did to annoy the Almighty.' That just about sums it up for me, I am now wondering just how long will it be before she is ripping up a picture of Selassie on TV? Link
