Sinead: I was longing for hymns and religious songs that weren't so boring and that also didn't perpetuate this kind of false idea of God, which I felt Catholicism did at the time. So I was always interested in the idea of rescuing God from religion and the idea of singing as prayer. Rasta music is the only kind of music that I think really gets that across. You feel the spirit of God alive in that music.
(on comparing her later and earlier albums) Sinéad: When you're young, you don't really know quite what you're aiming at. You're very impulsive and acting on impulse, which is very important and valuable. But you're kind of swimming in a blind sea. When you get older, you have more of a sense of direction.
Sinéad has a close relationship with several members of fellow Irish band U2.
After Sinéad's appearance on Saturday Night Life, Madonna copied Sinéad's performance by ripping up a photograph of Joey Buttafuoco.
