In the early 90s, Sinead O'Connor was a bald bombshell who achieved world-wide success with her cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U."

But in the years following that teary ballad, O'Connor has gone through quite a number of transformations. And just a few months ago, without her signature 'do, the star was barely recognizable.

While she hadn't put out a new album since 2007, O'Connor was becoming a hit on the internet. The singer had wowed the world when she took to social media, hoping (very, very candidly) for a suitable mate.

In a blog entry titled, "IS SINEAD ABOUT TO HUMP HER TRUCK?" O'connor worried that she was "so desperate for sex" that she might have done something drastic.

"My sh-uation sexually/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good as are inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables. I tell you yams are looking like the winners," she wrote.

Though, things seem to be looking up for the Irish songstress. She's spoke with V Magazine about ditching her twitter account and putting all her energy into her upcoming album.

So as I was writing these articles about sex, and Twitter and everything, it was a very interesting experience and I got the feeling that it was 50/50, half the country was amused because it was funny, and they other half were very serious and just took it terrible seriously. So there was a fair bit of abuse and I thought, wait, it’s actually okay for me to be me, we can all be whoever we are. So it made me write a new song for the record and actually change the title of the record, which is the only reason I’m telling this long story. So the record is now called How About I Be Me, And You Be You.

Now she's getting back to her roots -- she's back to bald and belting out a revamped "Nothing Compares 2 U."

What do you think? Below is the original, does she still got it?
