Sinéad O’Connor Explains Tearing Pope Photo on SNL (Flashback)

Sinéad O’Connor told ET why she ripped up a photo of Pope John Paul II during ‘Saturday Night Live’ in October 1992. Less than two weeks after the move made headlines, the ‘Nobody Compares 2 U’ singer reflected on the controversial stunt in a sit-down interview, explaining why she chose not to inform anyone at ‘SNL’ ahead of her performance. The Irish music icon said she was abused as a child, which led to her speak out against the Vatican on the sketch comedy series. On Wednesday, ET learned O’Connor died at the age of 56.
