Sinead Sneaks a Smoke

11/2/2007 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It is well-nigh two decades since Sinead O'Connor had her last hit record, "Nothing Compares 2 U," but the public pope-pic-ripper looks pretty much exactly as she did back in 1990. Mandinka!


TMZ snapped the singer in a park in the West Village, looking as surprised as anyone that she's still recognizable to cameramen -- who were wearing short pants when she was topping the charts. Nothing compares to that trademark buzz cut!

Thus surprised, Sinead tried to conceal her cancer stick, but to no avail.

In order to work for TMZ you have to have to have dropped out of high school and have atleast 2 felony charges against you.

Her "first and last" hit record may have been true in the US, but she was and still is hugely popular overseas.

Sinead has a great voice. Very powerful. Think of those around now. Who sings that powerfully?

It never ceases to amaze me how little the TMZ reporters know about the people they snark about (or attempt to snark about, in order to be snarky one has to be smart).
O'Connor has made some great recordings since her cover of the Prince song. She has a great voice.
Oh and in hindsight, was she so wrong about the Catholic Church? She ripped up the picture of the Pope to draw attention to the abuse going on within the church.
Well, turns out she was right all along.

She doesn't hate the Pope anymore. In fact she became a priest - seriously. I'm not sure if she still is, but check it out, it's true. Back at the height of her controversy, she took out a full page advert in a leading Irish newspaper, apologising for her behaviour and seeking forgiveness from the Irish people. She is/was certainly unstable - but a great musical talent nonetheless.

I liked Nothing Compares 2 U when Prince did it first. Her version was a decent remake. I figured she was pretty hot overseas for a while. Euro people aren't as judgemental and fickle as Americans. And thats just the damn truth. People...the Spice Girls sold out in like minutes over there. Think I'll move over there if we get another Republican President ....Good to see Sinead doing well...

What a loser!!!! She should go back to Ireland and stay there. She sucks. Yes she was wrong about the Catholic Church and to rip up a picture of the Pope and she still is. The abuse going on in the Catholic Church is alot less than what goes on in our schools. Did you know your child is more likely to be molested by a teacher than a priest? Of course not, but you wouldn't know it by the bigoted press.
