What’s the best way to follow up making national headlines by threatening suicide on Twitter? Get a HUGE Jesus tattoo on your chest, shave your head and squeeze a reluctant Deborah Harry as hard as you can! At least that’s the approach of Irish songstress Sinead O’Connor, who stole the show on the red carpet at last night’s amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles.

The broad-shouldered O’Connor’s new chesterpiece features the visage of Christ amidst a colorful array of flowers, leaves and a big red heart. Not surprisingly, it doesn’t include the pope:

But let’s forget about the present and take a trip back the past! Given over twenty years of hindsight, which blockbuster single do you think is the best – Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” or Sinead’s Prince-penned “Nothing Compares 2 U?”

That’s a tough call!!! (Perhaps I should have pitted “Call Me” against “Emperor’s New Clothes.”)
