 The comedian commented: “It’s interesting to look at this in the context of the career that Sinead O’Connor had. She was a very beautiful, searing person with the great gift of this voice, but always accompanied with a kind of intensity, the moments of controversy.

“Clearly she’s a person that’s been conflicted, and as we’ve said before: How could you not be conflicted in this world? There are so many conflicting messages.”

He added: “I’ve noticed a lot when dealing with people that have got self-declared mental issues, that they are seemingly quite sensitive and intuitive, a little bit raw. They’ve exposed a lot of their gift to the world, and I think it can be a hard thing to carry.”

He concluded: “I suppose ultimately we have to hope, pray in fact, that Sinead O’Connor gets better, and that the world gets better”.
