Sinead O'Connor made some disturbing disclosures about suicidal thoughts on Twitter that shocked and worried her fans - but was she even being serious?
Yes ... but only to a point. After posting a series of thoughts such as "now I wish I was dead, no hope," and the Irish singer has responded to the backlash.
Her core message, in an open letter posted this morning, is that you don't have to hide your feelings, even those that come from a dark, disturbed place.
At the same time? Please don't off yourself.
"Open letter to all people in who occassionally feel suicidal, think, or have acted suicidally, including that really annoying Sinead woman that won't just shut the f--k up and stop making people feel uncomfortable," she rambled.
"Why would 'God' want u to beat urself up for wanting to die? Don't allow anyone near u who, when ur with them u feel bad about u. U haven't died. That's what matters to God. God is close to the broken hearted. And 'God' doesn't judge."
