Sinead O’Connor debuted her newly shaven head and her tattoos at amfAR Inspiration Gala in Hollywood last night.
With her fuller figure, unmatching purple dress and ensemble of tattoos, Sinead O’Connor, 44, looked a far from her chart-topping self in the 1990s.
The Irish singer explained in an interview once: “I’d been trying to grow it, but someone asked if I was Enya. I was so shocked, I shaved all my hair off.
“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 O’Connor and Blondie singer Deborah Harry looked more erratic than elegant as they posed together at the amfAR Inspiration Gala held at West Hollywood hotel, The Château Marmont.
Sinead O’Connor showed off her colourful Jesus tattoo in the centre of her chest and the inking down her forearms.
Deborah Harry also looked bizarre, with an unflattering tartan red, black and white dress which she eccentrically teamed with fishnet pop socks, black elbow length gloves and high heels.
The singers seemed particularly happy to see each other at the event, in aid of amfAR, the foundation for AIDS research, and posed for several photographs together.
Sinead O’Connor has recently been hitting the headlines for her personal life, splitting from her third husband Steve Cooney in March.
Sinead O’Connor has also recently criticized the UK X Factor for the way the judges treat the contestants.
“I find it hard to watch it,” the singer said.
“I don’t think the people running the show are the kind of people who think about the effect of their behaviour upon people.”
Sinead O’Connor and Deborah Harry also performed at the event which attracted many celebrities as Sandra Bullock, Colin Farrell and Rose McGowan.
Sinead O’Connor put in an energetic performance on the outdoor stage to the assembled partygoers.
Deborah Harry, 66, tours and releases records with Blondie which still consists of her former boyfriend Chris Stein.
