Sinead O’Connor appears to be alive and well – and as passionate about politics as ever.

The 49-year-old singer shot down claims that she was suicidal in a Facebook post on Friday while celebrating Britain’s decision to leave the European Union.

The post comes hours after Chicago police received a call from police in Ireland, saying that the singer was in the Windy City and threatening suicide. “Sinead O’Connor called and said, ‘I’m on a bridge in Chicago and I’m going to jump,'” Irish authorities reportedly told Chicago police, asking the department to keep a watchful eye.

“It’s bulls— I jumped off a bridge,” O’Connor wrote. “Some stupid bitch up at Swords Garda station [an Irish police station] decided she’d like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip about is all.”

“AM FAR TOO F—ING HAPPY FOR THAT,” she continued.

O’Connor’s happiness appears to be motivated by Britain’s history-making vote on Thursday – nicknamed “Brexit.”

“IRELAND IS OFFICIALLY NO LONGER OWNED BY BRITAIN!!!!” the Irish-born singer said. “CONGRATS TO EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD WHO EVER DIED FOR THE CAUSE OF IRISH FREEDOM, AND ALSO TO ALL THOSE INCLUDING MYSELF, WHO HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED MERCILESSLY BY THE IRISH SO CALLED FREE-STATE FOR HAVING DECLARED SUPPORT FOR SINN FéIN AND THE REPUBLICAN MOVEMENT.”

“OUR DAY HAS COME!!!!!!!”

The Sinn Féin political party is known for their plight of national self-determination. O’Connor’s post also included support for Irish republican politician and president of Sinn Féin, Garard Adams.

The celebrations for O’Connor continued in another post, in which she honored the feast day of St John the Baptist.

“Sometimes the rage of a soul is equivalent to the size of that soul’s knowledge of and desire to revel in it’s glorious God given right to LIVE,” she said. “Free as it was created in the beginning. When there was NOTHING BUT THE WORD.”
