Sinead O’Connor has hot new look, ‘Bossy’ new album title

Sinead O’Connor has a new album name, and a new look.

O’Connor took a cue from Sheryl Sandberg’s “Ban Bossy” censorship advocacy campaign and has dubbed her new album, due out Aug. 12, “I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss.”

“Originally I had a different title, The Vishnu Room,” O’Connor writes on her website. “But a few months back when I saw the phrase ‘I’m not bossy, I’m the boss’ and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl’s campaign is a terribly important one.

“At the stage I became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign it was too late to change the album title because the sleeve was already in print. But last week when the record company received the promo shots, which included the cover shot you now see, they asked could they change the planned cover to the current one, and that allowed me the opportunity of changing the title.”

The promo shot, taken by Irish photographer Donal Moloney, shows O’Connor in a black bobbed wig and latex high-necked black dress, clutching a guitar.

“Last week I had the great pleasure of doing a series of shots with Sinead O’Connor,” Moloney wrote on Facebook. “This is the one that will be used for her new album ‘I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss’.”

The “Ban Bossy” campaign features famous faces, including Beyoncé, Jane Lynch, and Jennifer Garner, pledging to eliminate the word “bossy” from their vocabularies, saying it is used to unfairly brand girls while boys are instead called leaders.
