Sinéad O'Connor wants to let you know: I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss.
A staple T-shirt slogan, that's also the title of O'Connor's upcoming album, out later this summer.
If "I'm not bossy" sounds familiar, you'll probably remember that it's the rallying cry of Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign, adopted by the likes of Beyoncé, Jennifer Garner, and Condoleezza Rice. It's unclear whether the Irish singer's new record is in any way related to Ban Bossy, or if it's just Sinéad being, you know, Sinéad. (Our bet's on the latter.)
In any case, O'Connor put on a very non-Sandbergian getup in a promotional shot for the album. Imagine Catherine Zeta-Jones' "All That Jazz" and Death Becomes Her-era Isabella Rossellini, with a dash of Maggie Cheung's Irma Vep.
The 12-song album, which includes the first single "Take Me To Church," is the singer's follow-up to How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?, released in 2011.
I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss is out August 11.
