Sinead O’Connor Slams The AMAs, Says Producers Tried To Get Her To Appear With Pope Francis

  • So, this is interesting: Sinead O’Connor took to her website yesterday to slam the people behind the American Music Awards, saying they contacted her about performing at the show, and then proposed having POPE FRANCIS introduce her, saying the moment would be “important,” “relevant,” and “meaningful.” (Sinead, of course, is well known for having ripped up a picture of Pope John Paul II on “Saturday Night Live” in the early ’90s.) The producers of the show, Dick Clark Productions, never heard back from the Vatican (OBVIOUSLY) and Sinead said she was suddenly cut. “I never heard anything so warped and disrespectful to both the Pope and myself, as well as millions of catholics (As well as my fans, with whom I have some f–king street cred, thanks, and integrity)  in my life,” she wrote. Odd, all around. [Us Weekly]
