Sinead O’Connor Dropped Sad Tupac Shakur Bombshell


Irish legend Sinead O’Connor recently passed away at the age of 56 after years of mental health battles. It seems she was well aware of the value of her music legacy.

In a 2021 interview with People magazine to promote her memoir “Rememberings,” O’Connor said she had explained to her children the importance of protecting her music and finances. To that end, she said she told them to call her accountant before they telephoned 911 should she ever be found dead.

“See, when the artists are dead, they’re much more valuable than when they’re alive,” she told the publication. “Tupac has released way more albums since he died than he ever did alive, so it’s kind of gross what record companies do.”

“That’s why I’ve always instructed my children since they were very small, ‘If your mother drops dead tomorrow, before you called 911, call my accountant and make sure the record companies don’t start releasing my records and not telling you where the money is,’” she further explained.

The Irish singer gained across the world in 1990 by her heartrending cover of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U. It comes a year after the mother-of-four’s son Shane, 17, took his life in January 2022 after escaping the hospital while on suicide watch.

At the time of her death, the musician, who changed her name to Shuhada’ Sadaqat in 2018 when she converted to Islam, was thought to be spending her time between Co Roscommon, Ireland, and London. Prior to her death, the mother-of-four also posted a series of Spotify links to relatively sad and heart breaking songs, including one she dedicated to ‘all mothers of Suicided children’.
