Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor Feud Gets Nasty: Poor Amanda Bynes Dragged Into the Fight
Miley Cyrus Naked For Bangerz Booklet
It was only a matter of time before Miley Cyrus responded to Sinead O’Connor’s open letter Dear Miley. Granted Sinead could have privately sent Miley this message but since it seems nothing is done privately these days she went ahead and posted it for all of us to see. It was heartfelt and filled with a lot of truth, but apparently Miley was none too pleased with the unsolicited advice because she went ahead at tweeted “Before Amanda Bynes … There was …” with a link to Sinead’s tweets from two years ago when she was in the midst of a mental breakdown.
First off why bring Amanda Bynes who is currently being treated for mental illness into it? Second off, sweet niblets Miley after all these years in the business haven’t you learned that sometimes no response is better than a dumbass one – oh wait I forgot you rather have us talk about you for two weeks than two days. Well straight up your response was insensitive to not just Sinead and Amanda but to anyone suffering from a mental illness. Rightfully so Sinead was none too pleased with Mileys diss and kept the feud going by posting a response to Mileys tweet on her Facebook, and it went a little something like this:
Miley… Really? Who the fuck is advising you? Because taking me on is even more fuckin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling itfeminism. 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 continued to hit back at Miley threatening legal action in a later Facebook post:
Ms Cyrus has today posted tweets of mine which are two years old and which were sent when I was ill and seeking medical help. She has done this in an attempt to deliberately cause me harm and hurt. I wish to confirm that I am quite well and kindly request people cease e mailing me in the mistaken belief these are recent tweets. Ms Cyrus’ lawyers will be contacted by mine regarding this matter. I confirm also that I do not at all support or condone the abuse or mockery of those who have been brave enough to openly discuss mental health issues. Mockery causes deaths. Period. It is an unacceptable form of bullying, no matter who it is doing the bullying.
Of course Miley wasn’t going to let Sinead have the last word so she went on to tweet “Sinead. I don’t have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week.” As well as, “So if youd like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. 🙂”
All joking aside Miley don’t make light of something so heavy as mental illness especially since your actions as of late have us all wondering if you too might be chemically imbalanced. Remember there is a thin line between being famous and infamous and once you cross it there is no coming back.
In Defense Of Miley Cyrus …
Have any of you Peepz read the open letter Sinead O’Connor wrote to Miley? It’s making the rounds like wild fire. And although I applaud some of the sentiment behind Sinead O’Connor’s letter, if she was really concerned about the well-being of a fellow musician, she could have done it privately, instead of very publicly calling out the music industry by using a 20 year-old as a symbol of prostitution.
Yes, it’s a bad, bad, world, Sinead. But what are you suggesting when you said:
“This is a dangerous world. We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals, a distressing majority of whom work in the music industry and it’s associated media.”
Does dressing in revealing clothes make women prey? Silly me, I thought feminism had already dealt with the whole the-way-you-dress-has-nothing-to-do-with-sexual-assault thing. I’m just a lady prone to overreaction and dramatization, but it sounds a lot like slut-shamming and victim-blaming to me.
When did it become okay to publicly shame and verbally insult people on a massive scale? If I got a fraction of the hate Miley is getting when I was her age, I would have had a nervous breakdown.
I’m calling it. The Internet has conspired to bully Miley Cyrus. Yes, I said BULLY. Just get off her case already!
Bah, whatever, right?! She’s a celebrity, it comes with the territory. It’s our right to express ourselves even if it’s criticism. It’s not like we haven’t seen it before. Every time some unknown chick gets naked, the stupid slut is trying to get famous. And every time a famous chick gets naked, she’s a dumb attention whore. Blah, blah, blah.
Just scroll through the blog text real quick and get to the sexy pictures already, right?! Except, we’re not all dumbass pervs. Sure, we’re pervs, but sexuality and the media who cater to people’s sexuality have evolved beyond all that. We can be degenerates without being complete douche bags. One can hope.
I have a picture of myself taken by my roommate when I was 19 years-old, and in the picture I’m wearing a skirt slip, a pair of fuck me boots, huge ass sunglasses and nothing else. Oh and I’m sitting on a toilet. That picture was taken on a Wednesday. It was no big deal. It was a regular night at home. I posted it on facebook.
No one called me a slut, or an attention whore, at least not to my face, but that’s because I’m a nobody and people used to keep their mean hidden on the inside where it belongs. My family sort of shunned me, but that’s a whole other story. Point is, Miley is just some 20 year-old having fun. It’s no big deal. These pictures were taken on a Wednesday. They were posted on the Internet.
The only difference is that Miley hangs out with Terry Richardson and they’re both famous. If she were a nobody and she was getting the hate that she’s getting now, the Internet would take her up as the next cause to defend. Instead, she’s being shred to pieces by every Tom, Dick, and Sinead O’Connor, because.. what?… she’s showing a little skin? Because she’s sticking her tongue out a lot?
Give me a break and go back to bemoaning the whole Janet Jackson Super Bowl incident if that’s what gets your rocks off, just keep your freaking #letskeepourselvescoveredladies hashtag out of my goddamn face or I will print these pictures of Miley, construct a life size replica of Cyrus out of papier pâché – nipple, tit, tongue, beer penis and all – and beat you with it. Possibly to death.
I bet Miley would send me pictures in jail. She seems nice like that.

Sinead O’Connor Warns Miley Cyrus She’s Being ‘Prostituted’ In Open Letter
Sinead O’Connor has now joined the long list of people that have been publicly besieging Miley Cyrus to stop doing what she’s been doing lately. Sinead wrote a long letter to Miley about her twerking and the way her image has been exploitedlately, and she tells Miley that she’s being ‘prostituted‘ so other people can gain.
The full letter states,
I wasn’t going to write this letter, but today i’ve been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your “Wrecking Ball” video was designed to be similar to the one for “Nothing Compares” … So this is what I need to say … And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love.
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 it’s the music business or yourself doing the pimping.
Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.
I am happy to hear I am somewhat of a role model for you and I hope that because of that you will pay close attention to what I am telling you.
The music business doesn’t give a sh– about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think its what YOU wanted.. and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, “they” will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone.
None of the men oggling you give a sh– about you either, do not be fooled. Many’s the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesn’t mean they give a f— about you. All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you don’t give much of a f— about yourself. And when you employ people who give the impression they don’t give much of a f— about you either. No one who cares about you could support your being pimped.. and that includes you yourself.
Yes, I’m suggesting you don’t care for yourself. That has to change. You ought be protected as a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you, including you. This is a dangerous world. We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals, a distressing majority of whom work in the music industry and its associated media.
You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal. The world of showbiz doesn’t see things that way, they like things to be seen the other way, whether they are magazines who want you on their cover, or whatever.. Don’t be under any illusions.. ALL of them want you because they’re making money off your youth and your beauty.. which they could not do except for the fact your youth makes you blind to the evils of show business. If you have an innocent heart you can’t recognise those who do not.
I repeat, you have enough talent that you don’t need to let the music business make a prostitute of you. You shouldn’t let them make a fool of you either. Don’t think for a moment that any of them give a flying f— about you. They’re there for the money.. we’re there for the music. It has always been that way and it will always be that way. The sooner a young lady gets to know that, the sooner she can be REALLY in control.
You also said in Rolling Stone that your look is based on mine. The look I chose, I chose on purpose at a time when my record company were encouraging me to do what you have done. I felt I would rather be judged on my talent and not my looks. I am happy that I made that choice, not least because I do not find myself on the proverbial rag heap now that I am almost 47 yrs of age.. which unfortunately many female artists who have based their image around their sexuality, end up on when they reach middle age.
Real empowerment of yourself as a woman would be to in future refuse to exploit your body or your sexuality in order for men to make money from you. I needn’t even ask the question.. I’ve been in the business long enough to know that men aremaking more money than you are from you getting naked. It’s really not at all cool. And it’s sending dangerous signals to other young women. Please in future say no when you are asked to prostitute yourself. Your body is for you and your boyfriend. It isn’t for every spunk-spewing dirtbag on the net, or every greedy record company executive to buy his mistresses diamonds with.
As for the shedding of the Hannah Montana image.. whoever is telling you getting naked is the way to do that does absolutely NOT respect your talent, or you as a young lady. Your records are good enough for you not to need any sheddingof Hannah Montana. She’s waaaaaaay gone by now.. Not because you got naked but because you make great records.
Whether we like it or not, us females in the industry are role models and as such we have to be extremely careful what messages we send to other women. The message you keep sending is that it’s somehow cool to be prostituted.. it’s so not cool Miley.. it’s dangerous. Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. we aren’t merely objects of desire. I would be encouraging you to send healthier messages to your peers.. that they and you are worth more than what is currently going on in your career. Kindly fire any motherf—er who hasn’t expressed alarm, because they don’t care about you.
This was by far one of the most eloquent and passionate letters I’ve read, and I really, really hope that Miley sees it. I don’t see how she wouldn’t, since it’s all over the media. Every point that Sinead makes is valid, especially because she’s gone through so much of this herself.
Right now, Miley’s not thinking about her future, and that’s something you can understand. She just broke off a long-term relationship, and the attention from the public is probably her replacement for her ex-boyfriend’s affections. However, this whole new image isn’t going to help her at all in the future, and of course no one close to her will tell her that – they’re all benefiting from the fame and the attention, and they wouldn’t want that to go away, would they?
And while you can argue that Miley’s living her own life and making her own decisions, she’s still SO young. She doesn’t really know what she’s doing, and she’s too emotionally compromised to be completely stable.
