“There Was Something Almost Terrorist About It" - Sinéad O’Connor Slams U2

Sinéad O’Connor has slammed Irish rock band U2 this week saying that the band "invaded people's lives."

The singer lashed out at the band and their decision to release their album Songs of Innocence via iTunes. She also stated that she did not agree with the fact that the album then automatically uploaded to users' iTunes libraries.

“What they did with iTunes was a badly-judged move,” she told The Mail on Sunday. “There was something almost terrorist about it. I’m really not a U2 fan, but it wasn’t at all kosher invading people’s lives like that. It was bad management.”

The singer went on to add that the band had decided to “force it (the album) on people who didn’t want it in the first place.”

Sinéad featured with Bono and a host of other stars on the new Band Aid 30 video which was released over the weekend.
