The singer, who is known for her decisive comments, apologised after claiming she "never wants to spend time with white people again".
Sinead O'Connor, 52, made the remarks on Twitter in October last year.
She has since expressed regret and admitted she was “angry and unwell” when she made the controversial remarks.
The Irish musician wrote a slew of abusive comments on her social media feed which saw her label non-Muslims "disgusting" and criticised the Christian and Jewish faiths.
Following time away from the spotlight, Sinead make a rare public appearance on Ireland's The Late Late Show last week, and performed her hit song Nothing Compares 2 U.
After her interview, she quickly took to Twitter and claimed the remarks were made "as a result of Islamophobia dumped on [her]".
The troubled star, who recently converted to Islam, wrote to her 50,000 followers: "Lots saying I’ve changed religions more than once. Not so. I was born into Christianity and I changed to Islam. So that’s one change. For those who have difficulty counting.
“As regards to remarks I made while angry and unwell, about white people… they were not true at the time and they are not true now.
"I was triggered as a result of Islamophobia dumped on me. I apologise for hurt caused."
She added: "That was one of many crazy tweets lord knows.”
Discussing her newfound Islamic faith and converting to the religion, she told Late Late host Ryan Tubridy: "I read chapter two of the Qu’ran and I realised I’m home, and that I’ve been a Muslim all my life. There’s a way of thinking.
“You can be a Muslim without actually being a Muslim as it’s a headset. A Muslim is someone who believes nothing should be worshipped except God."
Speaking about wearing the hijab, she added: "I wear it when I feel like it. There's no rules, as such. I'm not at my age required to wear a hijab."
