Sinead O'Connor Blasts Miley Cyrus in Second Open Letter

Sinead O'Connor Blasts Miley Cyrus in Second Open Letter

Sinead O’Connor has added more fuel to the fire in her new feud with Miley Cyrus with a second open letter blasting the “Wrecking Ball” singer.

Miley… Really? Who the f–k is advising you?” the 46-year-old artist wrote on her Facebook account in her new message. “Because taking me on is even more f–kin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism.”

“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,” Sinead added. “In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help.”

Sinead originally sent an open letter to Miley to warn her against “being prostituted” by the music industry.

Miley… Really? Who the fuck is advising you? Because taking me on is even more fuckin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. 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.

I mean really really… who advises you? have you any idea how stupid and dangerous it is to mock people for suffering illness? You will yourself one day suffer such illness, that is without doubt. The course you have set yourself upon can only end in that, trust me.

I am staggered that any 20 yr old woman of the 21st century could behave in such a dangerous and irresponsible manner as to not only send the signal to young women that its ok to act like prostitutes but also to the signal that those who have suffered or do suffer mental health problems are to be mocked and have their opinions invalidated. Have you no sense of danger at all? or responsibility? Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers. I am certain you will be hearing from all manner of mental health advocacy groups also. It is not acceptable to mock any person for having suffered.

It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you. And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry. I hope that you will apologise to Amanda Bynes and to any person who has been wounded by your mockery of those who have suffered. And I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women.

Furthermore you posted a photo of me tearing the pope’s photo .. as if to imply insanity.. by doing so all you have achieved is to expose your staggering ignorance. I suggest you read The Philadelphia Report, The Boston Report, all the reports which will illuminate for you why that action of mine remains sane and valid. By mocking it you mock every child who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of priests and had it covered by the Vatican. You could really do with educating yourself, that is if you’re not too busy getting your tits out to read.

    Sinead knows; Miley is too young and too uneducated to get it. She’s stuck in pre-adolescent. My only criticism of Sinead is that she should pick up on the fact that Miley is too dense to get what she’s saying.

    idgaf what anybody says but miley sounds really unlikeable lately. it doesnt do her any favors. she said sinead was an inspiration for her “art”, sinead gave her some advice, thats all. miley is the female beiber, theyre pretty much twins.

    Go Sinead!

    TBH if someone basically called me a prostitute I would do the same thing.
    But both are morons anyways.

    Sinead is divine. As wise and sound as her words seems to most of us I doubt they reach through to Miley Cyrus however. Which is of course, sad.
    After the way she made fun of Sinead and everyone else suffering from mental illness (normally recognised as the most intelligent people there is) whatever respect I might have had for her is lost and even though I would have probably never bought any of her CD’s or films I henceforth swear I will never, not even as a gift to someone else. This I will regard upon as me doing them a favor.

    I thought Sinead’s first letter was spot on and it was written with more compassion than I would have used.
    The second letter is correct as well, but engaging Miley Cyrus is equal to repeatedly banging your head up against a wall.
    She’s not going to listen to anybody who disagrees with her choices. She is loving all the press her sh!tty VMA performance and ridiculous actions are getting.
    She’s immature, a drug abuser, and surrounds herself with the likes of Kanye…the most narcissistic, sociopathic ‘entertainer’ around today.
    Simply put, Miley isn’t going to self reflect for quite some time…if ever.
    One day she will be either a washed up has-been, in and out of rehab or mental institutions, or dead, unless she somehow wises up.
    Between her parents, her handlers, and her associates, she has nobody with the guts or concern to clue her in on the horrible mistakes she is making.
    They’re all going to ride Miley’s gravy train until she’s a used up husk.
    It’s pathetic and sad.

    Both Robin Thicke and Terry Richardson are pedophiles and they are both guitly of using (a willing and very silly) Miley. First, we have Thicke’s “unrated” video with those girls prancing around naked in what can only be perceived as a daycare centre with all the toy props and lolly-pops, grown, fully-dressed men playing with the girl’s hair, following them around the set and oogling them; second, we have Thicke thrusting up against Miley’s back-end and then fourth, we have Richardson doing the video (song is great – video – not so much); and then, fifth, he is taking photo’s of Miley that are beyond art or good taste. She looks childish, vulernable and totally un-sexy … unless you are a pedophile like Thicke and Richardson.

    Neither of these jerks are being called out for their part in the exploitation of Miley.

    I am not a prude and I do enjoy a sexy adult performance; however, what Miley has been putting out there is not sexy. She may be an “adult” but she looks and behaves like a child.

    Sinead is right in both her letters.

    Cyrus is a POS !

    @boooom: just because she is showing her body, doesn’t mean she has no self respect… educate yourself :)

    @Marie: Well said!!
