Singer Sinead O’Connor has stunned fans after appearing on Good Morning Britain wearing both a traditional Islamic headdress and a rainbow flag.
Sinead O’Connor has divided viewers with her appearance on Good Morning Britain on ITV, wearing a traditional Islamic head dress and a top which featured a rainbow flag.
The singer, who converted to Islam in 2018 was on the show to sing her iconic cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”. When she converted to Islam in 2018, she also changed her name to Shuhada’ Davitt.
However, her choice to wear a Rainbow flag top left some viewers questioning whether it was the right thing to do, while some praised her for uniting Islamic and LGBT+ symbols.
Commenting on her decision to wear a rainbow symbol, fans of the show were quick to comment.
While another added, “I’d very much like to see #SineadOConnor try to wear traditional Muslim dress plastered with the rainbow flag in Brunei if she’s so enamoured by Islamic attitudes to sexuality”.
While another continued, “I’m genuinely pleased that #SineadOConnor is in a happier place right now but if she wore Islamic dress with a flag on it in an Islamic country it wouldn’t end well”.
Many years ago, Sinead actually identified as part of the LGBT+ community when she came out and then went back in again. She said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she was three-quarters heterosexual.
