O’Connor has offered to perform Conor McGregor’s walk-on song as he prepares to fight Floyd Mayweather, Jr. next month. The Irish star sang The Foggy Dew before McGregor’s UFC entrance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena before a fight in 2015, and now she wants to bring him luck in Las Vegas again. On her personal Facebook account, Sinead has asked McGregor to send her U.S. doctor Nabil Siddiqi an autograph, calling the medic, who has helped her overcome a series of mental health issues:
[He is] the biggest Conor McGregor fan on earth. He totally saved my life so I can keep singing for your fights.
O’Connor sits down to an independent interview about her upcomming album I Am Not Mean.
The general theme of the album is love. Romantic love. So there are different characters who appear in different songs with various funny or sexy or rocking or delicate things to say. It’s a very guitar driven album because I’ve been supremely inspired as a songwriter in the last few years by Chicago blues ( happy funky blues).
The Guardian interviews O’Connor about her being a huge Barbara Streisand fan.
When I was a little girl I’d watch Hello Dolly and scream at the TV. I sang Evergreen at a wedding when I was 14 and that led to me going into a recording studio for the first time.
