She has four siblings, Eimear, John, Eoin, and novelist Joseph. O’Connor’s parents divorced when she was young. She became a victim of child abuse at the hands of her mother. At the age of fifteen, O’Connor was placed into a reform school for shoplifting. She later attended Newton School in Waterford but dropped out before graduating.
O’Connor began performing with the band, Ton Ton Macoute, in 1984. Her early influences included artists like David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and Bob Marley. She was signed to Ensign Records and her debut album, The Lion and the Cobra, was released in November 1987. The album featured the singles “Troy”, “Mandinka”, and “I Want Your (Hands on Me)”. O’Connor rose to stardom with the release of her second album, I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, in 1990. The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, sold 7 million copies, and picked up four Grammy nominations. The album featured the hit single “Nothing Compares 2 U”, written by Prince.
Other albums by O’Connor include ‘Am I Not Your Girl? (1992)’, ‘Faith and Courage (2000)’, and more recently ‘How About I Be Me (and You Be You)? (2012)’, and ‘I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss (2014)’. O’Connor also had her share of controversy starting back in 1989 when she announced her support for the Irish Republican Army. She boycotted the Grammy ceremony in 1991 and in 1992 she tore up a photography of Pope John Paul II during a live television broadcast. O’Connor has reportedly attempted suicide on a few occasions.
