HOW much did Sinead O’Connor pocket for three recent gigs in Germany? Bugger all.

The 48-year-old Irish singer claims she’s been ripped off, or as she called it, “ass raped”, by her booking agent to the tune of “hundreds of thousands of euro”.

In a fiery Facebook post, the Nothing Compares 2 U singer uploaded a photo of an insurance document which revealed just how little she was actually paid.

“What I got paid for three shows in Germany, five hundred euro ($ 751 AUD) as compared to what everyone else got paid,” wrote O’Connor.

“The last two figures on this list amount to what the agent Rita Zappador and Modus In Rebus got, €11,700.00 ($ 17,592 AUD). The €47,700.00 ($ 71,722 AUD) is the total of what my four and a half hours’ work generated.

We’d be pretty unhappy too if our pay slip looked like this.

“In the end the agent didn’t even pay me the five hundred. She docked me four thousand!

“Pls note bands do not arrange these things themselves. One’s business managers and agents do. One trusts one is not being lied to when one is seduced to go on tour by being assured of earnings. Our job is to shake our asses and sing nice. Management’s job is to fight off every c**t that wants to rip us off.”

In another Facebook post, the singer advised Rita Zappador and the booking company to “lawyer up” with legal proceedings now underway.

“An official complaint has been made by me to the Irish police against you, for fraud against myself personally in the amount of approximately one-hundred and twenty thousand euro ($ 270,650 AUD), almost the entire amount I earned for the last eighteen months’ touring.

“In short I have been ass raped by Rita Zappador and Modus in Rebus with the full (written, and totally behind my back, without my knowledge) support of Simon Napier Bell, Bjorn De Water and my now ex accountant. ALL of whom need to lawyer up, and get ready for the fraud squad.”

Is Kim Kardashian responsible for the death of music? According to Sinead O’Conor she is. The outspoken singer has called for a boycott of Rolling Stone Magazine after the publication chose Kim as a cover girl. The reality TV queen, who is married to one of the biggest artists on the planet and has dipped her toe in the music industry herself, appeared on the front of the music mag. Much to the dismay of the Irish musician. Writing on her Facebook page the Nothing Compares To You hit maker lashed out saying, What is this c**t doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died.
