Sinead O’Connor Retracts Retirement Announcement

Sinéad O’Connor has retracted her announcement, made last weekend, that she would retire from music and live performance.

In a new statement posted to Twitter, the Irish musician explained to fans that she had felt “badly triggered” by a series of interviews regarding her new memoir, “Rememberings,” in which she writes of surviving physical and psychological abuse.

The Irish musician said it was “unnecessary and hurtful” for BBC radio host Emma Barnett to repeat a statement, made by Neil McCormick in the Telegraph newspaper, calling O’Connor “the crazy woman in pop’s attic”, during an interview on June 2nd.

Posting on Twitter at the time, she described the interview as “extremely offensive and even misogynistic”.
