Sinead O'Connor is back to her best.
The iconic singer showed off her newly slim figure as she displayed a happy and healthy demeanour in London yesterday to promote her new album.
Sinead, who recently revealed she 'doesn't eat a thing', lost nearly two stone since she stopped taking a medication, which caused her to gain an inordinate amount of weight in a small period of time.
She was in London to promote her highly anticipated new album I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss on BBC Radio One, wearing a red rain jacket and sporting her trademark shaved head.
"Two years ago, I put on some weight but that was from medication so all that's happened is that I've been off medication and I've been skinny for two years," she told the Irish Daily Mail.
"It's all natural, all gorgeous. My problem is that I never eat a thing. I know it's bad but I've never been much of a person with an appetite," she added.
After a much publicised spat with Miley Cyrus last year, Sinead said she has reached out to other young singers, including Lana Del Rey, to discuss the over-sexualistation of women in music.
"I guess I give a sh*t about people is all," she told The Guardian. "And I don't know if I'm even old enough to be Britney Spears's mother, I hope I'm not. It's more that when you've been through grievous things yourself, and you see it happening to other people, you just want to snuggle them.
"It's the same if I saw a stranger crying in the street, I would want to go over and snuggle them because I know what it's like to cry on the street. I think that's the same for most people - we have empathy because we've been through sh*t ourselves."
