Sinead O'Connor's vampy new look
Sinead O'Connor has unveiled a sexy new makeover for the cover of her new album I 'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss.
The Nothing Compares 2U singer looks very different compared to her signature style of shaved head, minimal make-up and casual dress. The 47-year-old star is vamped up in a black wig, PVC dress with jeweled decoration and heay eye make-up as she clutches a guitar.
Sinead revealed on her blog that she changed the name of the album after being inspired by Facebook exec Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign. Beyonce is among the other stars backing the campaign against strong women being branded bossy.
Sinead said: "Just a note to explain the title of my forthcoming album IS taken from Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign.
"Originally, I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back, when I saw the phrase 'I'm not bossy, I'm the boss' and Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could rename the album.
"Indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl's campaign is a terribly important one."
The LP, her first since 2011, will be released via Nettwerk Records on August 11, with single Take Me To Church released on the same day.
Sinead will perform at London's Roundhouse on Tuesday, August 12, to launch the record.
