London: Irish singer Sinead O’Connor has slammed TV talent shows for luring young people into a “worship of fame”.

The 45-year-old, famous for her 1990 cover of Prince’s song ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and being outspoken against the Pope, gave an expressive interview where she hit out at talent shows.

“We’re all brought up to believe material success is where it’s at. The music business has gone that way, hasn’t it?” a leading daily has quoted her as saying.
