Sinead O’Connor wrote about Prince in her 2021 guide “Rememberings.” Based on the “Thank You For Listening to Me” singer, Prince was by no means pleased that she repurposed “Nothing Compares 2 U” into her personal hit tune. “Firstly, Prince did not like folks overlaying his songs,” O’Connor wrote in her guide (by way of Metro). “Secondly, he had all these feminine proteges and he was irritated that I wasn’t one among them,” she added. The Irish-born singer additionally alleged that the “When Doves Cry” artist had a historical past of being abusive. “On high of all this he was a woman-beating c***. I am actually not the one girl he laid a hand on.”
As O’Connor wrote in her guide, the assembly between the 2 occurred at Prince’s mansion, the place he displayed controlling traits which included making an attempt to drive her to eat soup. At one level within the night, Prince steered a pillow struggle, however slipped “one thing onerous … into his pillowcase” (by way of the New York Occasions). That led to O’Connor ultimately fleeing the mansion, however Prince chased after her in his automotive and so they had a confrontation on the freeway. “[Prince] begins chasing me around the automotive, telling me he is gonna kick the s*** out of me,” she wrote (by way of the New York Publish). Apparently, Prince partly acted out as a result of he had authorized points with O’Conner’s supervisor Steve Fargnoli. O’Connor would later have her personal authorized points with the singer.
