Sinead O'Connor converted to Islam and her name is now Shuhada'

Sinead O'Connor, the troubled Irish singer of such fantastic songs as "Nothing Compares 2 U" (penned by Prince), "Mandinka," and "The Emperor's New Clothes," announced that she has converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada' Davitt. Her Twitter icon shows the Nike logo with the words "Wear a Hijab / Just Do It."

"This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim," she Tweeted. "This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian's journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant."

Earlier this year, she had changed her name to Magda Davitt to be “free of the patriarchal slave names. Free of the parental curses.”
