Ode to singer-songwriter and political activist Sinéad O’Connor. She was evocative and outspoken and while her fellow male rockers could be activists and were rewarded for it, Sinéad was often labeled as “a problem”. She was marginalised and cancelled in the sense of the “feminist killjoy” when she brought up these ‘problems’ with her songs about sexism, homophobia and racism. But all of that paled in comparison to the uproar by ripping a photo of Pope John Paul II as a stance against sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church. That incident immediately made her a target of criticism and scorn, from social conservatives and beyond. Although “Nothing Compares 2 U” became her career signature she preformed for her own liberation as well as that of others and therefor opened up space for a new generation ‘my-life-is-art’ female pop stars. Sinead was the true embodiment of a punk spirit. She did not compromise and that made her life more of a struggle.
