Sinead O’Connor is taking the rest of the year off…
The singer made a statement on her website Monday acknowledging she is “very unwell” and saying her doctors have recommended she not continue touring after her “very serious breakdown between December and March.”
The singer, who released her ninth full-length album called How About I Be Me (and You Be You)? in February of this year, said she had initially planned on touring through the year, but admitted Monday she was “attempting to be stronger than I actually am.”
As you might remember, O’Connor has had a colorful past year chock-full of wild times. From sex-talk TMI on her blog, to a suicide scare, to marrying and divorcing her 4th husband within a matter of 18 days, it seems she’s been living on this manic roller-coaster for a while now.
It’s good to hear she has taken the advice of her doctors and for her sake, I hope she keeps it up and continues to get the help she needs.
