Distraught singer Sinéad O'Connor on skids at motel in New Jersey

The 50-year-old Irish singer, best known for her Prince-penned hit, "Nothing Compares 2 U", sobbed in the short video as she talks about what it's like to be far away from her family and isolated because of her mental illness. "And there's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on earth, who says I'm his hero, and that's about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment ... and that's kind of pathetic".

"I'm a 5'4" little f***ing woman wandering the world for two years by myself.

"Not actually to me, but the fact that I know that I'm only one of millions of millions of millions of people who are just like me, actually, who don't have necessarily the resources that I have in my heart or my purse for that matter", she continued.

Another wrote: "To Sinead's kids get over and help your mother, she is crying out for you all, forget what has happened and forgive, keep forgiving her until you get over there and give her a hug". She said at the time that medication had helped her find more balance, but "it's a work in progress". "We're not like everybody. else". Irish police later said she had been found safe.
