Irish musician Sinead O'Connor has made headlines for sporting a new look, which made her almost unrecognizable for her fans.
The photos of Sinead O'Connor in an entirely new look are creating a big buzz over the web. The singer, who is known for her shaved head and skinny figure, came out with the difference during her tour this summer.
The current look of the singer came as a shock to her fans. On Saturday, the singer was photographed while she was performing as a backup singer for reggae artist Natty Wailer during the Bray Seaside Music Festival.
44-year-old Sinead O'Connor was dressed in black, wearing a blazer, a sheer black blouse and black pants showing off her significantly fuller figure with a golden crucifix resting on her belly. Once known for her iconic shaved head, O'Connor was wearing a chopped shoulder length black haircut and glasses.
The addition of a pair of glasses for her summer tour made Sinead O'Connor more unrecognizable even to some of her most die-hard fans. The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer revealed her strikingly different look when she performed in County Wicklow, Ireland, for the first time in five years.
The talented and bold Sinead O'Connor gained big recognition with the 90s single "Nothing Compares 2 U". With her unique powerful voice, her big green eyes and her signature shaved head, she became an icon in the entertainment industry.
The Irish origin Sinead O'Connor had not been seen publicly a lot in the past five years. The last album of the singer was released in 2007, titled "Theology".
After the show, Sinead O'Connor said, "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."
Sinead O'Connor is now the mother of four children. In 2005, she came out as a lesbian, but later had a change of heart and corrected the information saying that she was actually three-quarters heterosexual.
In 2007, Sinead O'Connor revealed on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003.
The singer largely disappeared from the entertainment scene in 1992 after she had made headlines for ripping up a picture of Pope John Paul II on "Saturday Night Live" to protest sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church.
Currently, Sinead O'Connor is on tour throughout Europe.
