    Default Sinead O'Connor

    It's hard to believe this is the same woman who once declared she would never be without a head of shaven hair.
    Sinead O'Connor became renowned for having a bald head after she stared into the camera and sang the now iconic song, Nothing Compares 2 U.
    But the Irish singer was almost unrecognisable and looked dowdy as she performed at the Manchester International Festival Pavilion Theatre on Friday.

    No comparison: Sinead O'Connor with a full-head of hair looks very different from the shaven look we're used to


    Slightly heavier, barefoot and wearing a blue trouser-suit she belted out the tracks on her latest album Home.
    The album is different from her more recent compilations and sounds more like the hits which gave her world-wide fame in the 1980s and 90s.





    She was recently quoted as saying it doesn't have a theme but is more 'a collection of pop songs'.
    She clearly wowed the audience and her voice is still the same but she looked completely different with a full head of hair.


    Pop: The singer has said her latest album is different from her more recent ones and is similar to her songs from the 1980s



    For most of her career she's stuck to having minimal hair and once even insisted she would continue to shave her head until old age.
    The mother-of-four said: 'I don't feel like me unless I have my hair shaved. So even when I'm an old lady I'm going to have it.'
    Sinead rose to fame following the release of her 1990 cover of the Prince song Nothing Compares 2 U and its accompanying video.
    The music video shows a close-up of her face as she sings the song's lyrics and towards the end of the performance tears roll down her cheeks.





    Familiar: Sinead with her unconventional look which she said made her feel more 'like me' and, right, with a slightly longer elfin style



    She claims the lyric 'All the flowers that you planted, Mama in the back yard, All died when you went away' made her cry because of the complex relationship she had with her late mother.

    The clip went on to win Best Video at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards, the first video by a female artist to win in this category.
    She is also an outspoken critic on the Vatican and once tore up a photograph of Pope John Paul II on Saturday Night Live more than 20 years ago.
    More recently she hit out at Pope Benedict XVI after he wrote a pastoral letter of apology relating to decades of sexual abuse against children by priests in Ireland.

    I think she is more than a bit heavier...

    Holy crap!
    She was such a pretty girl. More weight is not an improvement on her.

    The Alfred Dunner matronly miss pantsuit certainly isn't helping, either.

    If this had been a 'Guess Who' thread, I would have been stumped.

    Right? Doesn't even look like her.

    That mother of the bride outfit is horrendous!

    She looks different. But everyone gets old and changes.

    ETA: I think I'll get some responses from this, so I'll just say I know that she's not old.

    She was pretty back in the day.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    People age, I think she looks fine and good for her still rocking the stage. She could do with a new wardrobe, though, the suit is very unflattering. If I were her I would go with long dresses.

    I'm looking at her recent pix again and I'm beginning to wonder if she perhaps has health issues or something? I've known people who were seriously ill and had the same look about them, from medication use. Hmmm.
