It's not performance art, it's Sinead O'Connor's latest video for "The Wolf Is Getting Married," off of her next, and ninth, album, How About I Be Me (And You Be You)? Though the song begins on a somber note, with O'Connor singing, "I was too free, if that's possible to be, no safety is what I mean, no solid foundation to keep me," it soon transforms into a simple celebration of love. "Your smile makes me smile," she sings, "Your laugh makes me laugh."
