0052. Sinead O'Connor

Sinead O'Connor is an Irish musician who rose to fame in the late 1980's.  She became famous for her rendition of "Nothing Compares 2 U," and made headlines because of her outspokenness regarding abuse, women's rights, war, and, (unfortunately) for simply having a shaved head.  Her most well known protest was as a musical guest on the Saturday Night Live show in 1992, where she ripped a picture of Pope John Paul II in half on air in protest of the Catholic Church and the alleged sexual abuse scandals related to it.
