Sinead O’connor, posesoarea unuia dintre cele mai mărețe hit-uri din toate timpurile, Nothing Compares 2 U, a distribuit pe pagina sa de Facebook o poză de acum 30 de ani, facută la 6 luni după ce mama sa a trecut în neființă. Poza a fost făcută de Colm Henry, în aeroportul din Dublin, la câteva zile înainte să se mute în Anglia. Era ziua in care artista semna primul său contract cu o casă de discuri. Avea 18 ani și tot atâția ani a locuit la Londra, orașul ei de suflet.
“30 years ago on this date, 6 months after the death of my mother, I signed my first record deal. This photo was taken by Colm Henry at Dublin airport in the few days before, when I left for England. I was 18 and I stayed 18 years there, in London, which is still my spiritual home. The night before this was taken, was the first ever time in my life that I stayed up all night, which is why I look so fucked. Never even smoked a splif till I was 20. Pete Townshend was sitting opposite me on the plane. I never even looked out the window behind me. Was so glad to leave Ireland. I focussed on the rocker, and fucked off…. I’d just like to say “I love you” to the wonderful girl in this photo. And “I’m so proud of you. Because before you signed a record contract, little girl you signed a contract with the Holy Spirit, and you kept that covenant, in a spiritually corrupt arena, all these years, despite all material temptations laid before you by the devil. You’re one faithful and consequently brave little motherfucker
