The estate of Sinead O’Connor & Chrysalis Records issue joint statement demanding Donald Trump stops using ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ at political rallies

The estate of the late Sinéad O’Connor, who died last year, has issued a joint statement with her longtime label Chrysalis Records denouncing the former American President Donald Trump for using her iconic performance of “Nothing Compares 2 U” without permission at his recent political rallies.

In the strongly worded statement, the two ‘guardians of her legacy’ highlight the fact that Sinéad lived her life by a “fierce moral code” and demand that Trump and his associates “desist from using her music immediately.”

The full statement is below:

A Joint Statement from The Estate of Sinéad O’Connor and Chrysalis Records
Throughout her life, it is well known that Sinéad O’Connor lived by a fierce moral code defined by honesty, kindness, fairness, and decency towards her fellow human beings. It was with outrage therefore that we learned that Donald Trump has been using her iconic performance of “Nothing Compares 2 U” at his political rallies. It is no exaggeration to say that Sinéad would have been disgusted, hurt, and insulted to have her work misrepresented in this way by someone who she herself referred to as a “biblical devil.” As the guardians of her legacy, we demand that Donald Trump, and his associates desist from using her music immediately.
