Sinead O'Connor - I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss Album Review


Two years ago, 'How About I Be Me And You Be You' marked a stunning return to form for the irrepressible and iconic Irish artist Sinead O'connor. Its predecessor, 'Theology', whilst by no means a bad album, was not her best work. Having taken a longer gap between that album and her last as she grappled with issues of health and relationships, Sinead appeared in the main to have got her mojo back. Thankfully, on 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss', she has not only held onto it but also demonstrated how she has clearly been buoyed by the love and appreciation shown by critics and fans alike by channelling some of that towards making another strong, positive and self-affirmed album.

Sinead O'Connor - I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss Album Review

Once you get past the clunky at best, bumper sticker at worst, well-intentioned but frankly awful album title, the music more than ever stands up to close scrutiny. Sinead's ability to craft and deliver a song with moving emotive passion has rarely been in question and the twelve new songs on this, her tenth album, are no exception. Her voice is still a truly individual and beguiling instrument that is so expressive, she never fails to own each song she performs. Sinead imparts such conviction and gives such an impassioned performance throughout 'I'm Not Bossy...' from the softly sung autobiographical plea of 'How About I Be Me' to the last bars of the aching intimacy of 'Streetcars'.

Sinead's need to love and be loved are more evident than ever on this album ("Always gotta be the lioness, taking care of everyone else"). Her four failed marriages may have taken a toll on her resilience but her belief in the institution of love has seemingly never been stronger. Perhaps it's an age thing or just how comfortable she has become in dealing with herself and her true feelings; whatever the reason, Sinead's motherly instincts and her protective, nurturing nature stretch far further than trying to persuade Miley Cyrus she may not be doing herself, or her gender, any favours in the way she has been promoting herself.

In Light Of The Peaches Geldof Twitter Controversy, Here Are Some Celebrities Teaching Us How Not To Use Social Media


Peaches Geldof Charlie Sheen Miley Cyrus Joan Rivers Kim Kardashian Sinead Oconnor Lindsay Lohan

Despite her Twitter apology, Peaches Geldof is still in hot water for tweeting the names of two mothers, whose babies were involved in abuse by disgraced rock star Ian Watkins. The daughter of Bob Geldof apologized and explained that she had assumed the names were already public knowledge, however she is still under investigation, according to the Daily Mail. The concern was that her tweets could expose the two children, who were granted lifelong anonymity by a court order, after their mothers had allowed Watkins to abuse them.

Peaches Geldof, ITV Studios
Peaches apologised profusely for the comment, but these are some tweets that may come back to haunt her.

While information on the case mostly ends here (save for the few tweets by the socialite herself), this isn’t the first time that social media has gotten the better out of a celebrity. Luckily, most of the time some Twitter TMI is only likely to provide some fodder for the gossip websites, rather than have real-world consequences. So with that in mind, let’s lighten the mood a little at take a look at some of the most embarrassing celebrity tweets.

Inherently Sexist Music Industry v Charlotte Church - Can She Make a Difference?


Charlotte Church Miley Cyrus Annie Lennox Sinead Oconnor

Charlotte Church seems willing to take on one of the biggest businesses in the world as she denounces the "culture of demeaning women" in the contemporary music industry. The 27-year-old singer made her comments as she delivered the keynote speech for the John Peel Lecture.

Having suffered the very same fate she accuses the music industry of inflicting on young female artists, Church has emerged as a popular voice of reason in a spectrum clearly lacking reason and forethought.

Miley Cyrus’s increased sexualisation of herself, and inanimate objects like foam fingers and wrecking balls, has catalysed the concern regarding an underlying culture of sexism and exploitation.
