Morrissey has criticized celebrities who are posting tributes to the late Sinead O’Connor, questioning where this support was when she was alive. In a statement on his website, he highlighted the music industry’s tendency to reject artists who do not conform, only recognizing their talent after their death. Morrissey also compared O’Connor to other iconic musicians who faced tragic ends and wondered why more wasn’t done to help them. Despite her struggles, O’Connor was known for her activism and unforgettable music, including the hit single “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Born in Dublin, she faced numerous challenges throughout her life but continued to make an impact through her art. O’Connor’s passing follows the tragic death of her son last year.
