"I loved his music, but I had absolutely no idea or expectation that that single would be such a big hit, not at all. Did I ever meet Prince? I did and... we didn't like each other. At all. Ha ha! I'm not going to go into it, but we detest each other..." the 46-year-old said in a new interview with Uncut magazine.

"It got violent too, which is why I can't go into it, but it is a very funny story. I'll tell it when I'm an old lady and I write my book.”

Sinead's version of 'Nothing Compares 2 U' went to number one in 14 countries in 1990.
