SINEAD O’Connor has gone back to her roots by sporting a bald head again.

She appeared last night at an AIDS benefit in Los Angeles where she showed off a freshly shaved head and a fresh tattoo of the head of Jesus on her chest.

Wearing a purple bodycon dress, pink lipstick and performing with Blondie star Debbie Harry, the singer seemed back to her old self as she mingled with celebrities including Sandra Bullock and and Selma Blair at the event at the famous Chateau Marmont.

Her new image could have a lot to do with her recently admitting to finding love on Twitter.

The 44-year-old singer, advertised for a new man on the social networking site, revealed she had now found a man to fit the bill.

"I finally did meet someone, Or he found me" she said, but refused to reveal more about her new partner.

Although the mum of four admits she no longer uses her Twitter account.

"I really enjoyed it, but unfortunately there's too many freaks on Twitter, including myself, so I just got fed up of being abused really. I made some serious friends, I'm still mates with some of the loopers I got on with on Twitter."

Earlier this week she had a go at X Factor judge Gary Barlow for the withering looks he gives young aspiring singers. "I find it hard to watch it because I can't stand the way some of the judges treat the performers.

"That guy Gary Barlow he has this horrible way of looking at people. If he was my son I'd be having a serious word with him about the way he's talking to people or treating people. I find it excruciating to look at."

The Irish singer agreed with suggestions that The X Factor audition process appeared to exploit people with mental health problems.

She added: "I don't think the people running the show are the kind of people who think about the effect of their behaviour upon people.
