The book-promoting interviews that entered our newsfeeds today have markedly different tones.
Sinead O’Connor will release Rememberings on June 1.
The Irish singer became famous for performing Nothing Compares 2 U — and then infamous for destroying a photo of Pope John Paul II.
But in her interview with the New York Times, O’Connor tells her interviewer that she has no regrets about the incident that sparked such backlash.
We might see it as an action that derailed her career, she says, but she herself saw stardom as derailing the life she should have had.
Already out — and a bit more lighthearted, we presume — is Seth Rogan’s Yearbook.
Based on his interview with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to Rogan’s former teachers that he became a comedic actor and writer, but it would perhaps surprise them that he actually wrote a book.
You can read an abbreviated version of Rogan’s interview on NPR’s website.
