Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Conner are in a huge feud, and it shows the vast ignorance of Cyrus; her youth and lack of knowledge about the world. It’s also quite sad and deeply disturbing to witness the complete lack of respect Cyrus shows for O’Conner. Cyrus is a completely non-talented, drug-fueled hack who can do nothing but flaunt her naked body all over the stage while simulating oral and vaginal sex with foam props. Sinead O’Conner is one of the most prolific and talented artists the world has ever known, with a powerhouse voice that seems heaven-sent. Even mentioning these two women in the same paragraph is a travesty. The fight has reduced them to something you would see on a Jerry Springer episode; takin’ off their weaves and heels and pushing up their sleeves to fight.
The argument between them is getting really ugly. It all started when O’Conner took to Facebook to write an open letter to Cyrus after Cyrus said that her Wrecking Ball look and concept was modeled after O’Conner’s Nothing Compares to You. O’Conner then posted a very long letter to Cyrus in which she warned the youngster about many things, including being “pimped,” “exploited,” and acting like a “prostitute.” In her letter, she said that men are making more money from Cyrus than Cyrus is herself. She also said that those same men are encouraging Cyrus to take off her clothes and sell her body. In her letter, she says:
I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping.
Cyrus, instead of taking the advice and thinking carefully about what O’Conner was saying, jumped on Twitter and proceeded to mock O’Conner by linking to a post of hers from two years ago when O’Conner was suffering from a bout of mental illness. In that Tweet, O’Conner was asking for medical attention for her problem. Miley Cyrus also posted a picture of Sinead O’Conner ripping up a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live in an apparent attempt to make O’Conner look “crazy.” To the contrary, ripping up the picture was entirely sane, as it was a protestation against the enormous amount of hidden child abuse and molestation within the Catholic Church.
After Cyrus posted those Tweets, O’Conner went back onto Facebook, and she was pissed. She told Miley Cyrus that her lawyers would be in touch unless Cyrus removed the offending Tweets:
You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help…Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers.
Cyrus responded by smugly announcing she didn’t have time to write an open later because she was too busy hosting Saturday Night Live. She then asked O’Conner to let her know if she wanted to meet in person. O’Conner wrote back to Cyrus saying:
I have no interest whatsoever in meeting you. You had plenty of time yesterday to abuse Amanda Bynes .. an entirely innocent party.. and myself.. who also did nothing to deserve your abuse.. along with every other sufferer of mental health problems and every person who suffered abuse at the hands of priests…If you cannot apologize I will have no choice but to bring legal proceedings against you since it is extremely hard to be given work when people think one is suffering from mental illness.
Miley Cyrus’ fued with Sinead O’Conner is sad and deeply disturbing. The fact is, Sinead O’Conner is right. Miley Cyrus is being pimped and is most certainly acting like a prostitute. Cyrus should be flattered to have an artist as profoundly talented as O’Conner even giving her the time of day. Cyrus has further shown herself to be graceless, immature and disrespectful by her mocking response to O’Conner. Right now, the feud between them is like watching them takin’ off their weaves and heels to fight. Maybe one day, Cyrus will grow up and realize how very lucky she was to have had fifteen minutes of fame. By that point, however, she’ll probably have her face so far down in the gutter it will be difficult to remember anything at all.
