Back in March, Sinead O’Connor released a new album that, as far as I heard, was pretty stellar. But, as I’m sure you’re all way more familiar with, Sinead’s also spent the past few months being crazy, both on Twitter and in real life. Sinead has stopped tweeting, as far as I can tell, but it seems like she’s still having problems, because the tour she was planning to promote that new album? Yeah, that’s not happening anymore.
Here’s the statement that was posted on Sinead’s website:
“With enormous regret I must announce that I have to cancel all touring for the year as I am very unwell due to bipolar disorder. As you all know I had a very serious breakdown between December and March and I had been advised by my doctor not to go on tour but didn’t want to ‘fail’ or let anyone down as the tour was already booked to coincide with album release. So very stupidly I ignored his advice to my great detriment, attempting to be stronger than I actually am. I apologize sincerely for any difficulties this may cause. While touring will be cancelled I do hope and plan to appear at the Curtis Mayfield tribute in The Lincoln Centre in July.”
I hope that this means that Sinead can finally, finally focus on her health and take care of herself. With no more Twitter, and apparently no more blogging, as her entire blog seems to be deleted, maybe she’ll have the chance to do that.
