Long before she became a global sensation with her hit song Nothing Compares 2 U, Sinead O’Connor worked as a kissogram.
The singer, 54, made the revelation during an interview on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain, appearing on the show to discuss her new memoir Rememberings, which is released today.
One tidbit from the autobiography stirred host Adil Ray’s imagination, as he quizzed Sinead on her experience as a kissogram back in the 80s.
A retro concept, a kissogram is a person who dresses up in a costume and delivers kisses to people upon request.
Recalling the quirky side-gig, Sinead explained she was instructed to dress up as a nun for the job, reading out poetry in an Irish restaurant.
The hitmaker, who was born in Dublin, added it was common for her peers to start working from a young age, earning money throughout their teenage years.
"When I was 16, I was a terrible kisser because I was very shy. In Ireland in those days you had jobs all the time," she said.
Sinead continued: "So anyway I had a job in a pizza place. I don’t know why I was interested in it, I think it was the outfits. I was a kissogram.
"My favourite was the naughty nun. It was a full-length nun’s outfit but at the back it was all cut away and you had garters and everything.
"You had to go and you’d read a terrible poem in a French accent. It was awful. And then you’d put a pair of knickers on the fella’s head."
Just a few years later, aged 21, she skyrocketed to fame with her recording of Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U, becoming a household name across the globe.
Later in the interview, Sinead admitted it was difficult to be faced with immense fame at such an early age, living her life in the spotlight.
The mum-of-three empathised with professional tennis player Naomi Osaka, who recently withdrew from the French Open when she was fined for refusing to deal with the press during the tournament.
"I identify very much with Naomi Osaka," she said, adding: "And what she's going through in the last two days. Fame at such an early age can cause problems.
"It's not easy for a young person."
Rememberings sees the outspoken singer delve into her past, discussing everything from her family life, to her rise to fame and spiritual journey.
