I think some critics just like to see any mildly-eccentric female singer as a kind of Victorian 'mad woman in the attic'. Yet someone like, say, David Bowie (the male-equalivent of her performance-wise) is just a creative genius.
I'm not convinced any singer is properly crazy apart from the ones whose brains have been buggered by LSD.
