Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor Twitter Fight Continues

The war of words between singers Miley Cyrus and Sinéad O’Connor has escalated into a potential legal battle. 

What started as an open letter from one former pop princess to a current one – in which a concerned O’Connor, 46, urged Cyrus, 20, not “to prostitute” herself – has quickly turned nasty.

In response to the letter, the “Wrecking Ball” singer took to Twitter and posted a series of old Tweets from the Irish singer, who according to BBC News, has bipolar disorder, and at the time of the Tweets was seeking recommendations from followers for a psychiatrist. 

Cyrus compared O’Connor to Amanda Bynes, who is undergoing psychiatric treatment. 

The response incensed O’Connor, who immediately penned another open letter, alongside other emotional responses, all of which were posted on Facebook. 

“Miley … Really? Who … is advising you? Because taking me on is even more … stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism,” O’Connor wrote, continuing in another 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.”

Is Miley Cyrus Pimping Herself Out, or is She The Hardest Working Woman in Showbiz?

   Sinead O’Connor said in an open letter to Miley Cyrus that the singer is pimping herself out and being a terrible role model to young women.
But many rappers she works with apparently disagree.
“Dear Miley,” O’Connor wrote on her personal website. “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.”
   The 1980s pop superstar then tells Cyrus the music industry is using her, and that anyone in her employ who tells her otherwise is also using her.
“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**k about you. They’re there for the money.. we’re there for the music.”
   She then encouraged Cyrus to look at the bigger picture when it comes to how she is presenting herself. 
   “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 its somehow cool to be prostituted.. its so not cool Miley.. its dangerous,” she writes. “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 motherfu**er who hasn’t expressed alarm, because they don’t care about you.”

Singer Sinead O’Connor Despises Being Called ‘Crazy’



Sinead O’Connor is calling for sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder to be treated with kindness, because referring to them as “crazy” is “a term of abuse.”

The Nothing Compares 2 U hitmaker, who claims to have been a victim of child abuse, was diagnosed with the condition last year after doctors previously told her she was bipolar.

O’Connor, who split from new husband Barry Herridge just two weeks after their December wedding, has become known over the years for her offbeat behavior and she is often referred to in the press as “crazy” – a term she despises because her illness can’t be helped.

She tells People magazine, “There’s no drug treatment for PTSD. Sufferers get bashed because we’re ‘crazy’, but crazy is a term of abuse. We need to be compassionate.”

But the singer, who recently underwent hospital treatment for depression, insists she’s managed to hide the worst of her troubles from her two youngest kids, aged eight and five.

She says, “I’ve been good about keeping it together at home. But at work, I was falling apart. That’s why I went to a hospital in January, so they (her children) wouldn’t be exposed. My older kids see the papers, they know I’ve had difficulty with depression and aren’t frightened by it.”

O’Connor recently reconciled with Herridge to give their on/off marriage another go.

Sinead O’Connor Back with 4th Husband After ‘Mad Love Making Affair’


Irish singer Sinead O’Connor was back in the arms of her fourth husband Wednesday — a week after she declared that their 16-day marriage was over.

The controversial songstress wed Barry Herridge in Las Vegas on Dec. 8, but less than three weeks later, she announced that the couple split due to “intense pressure” on her groom — and because she took him on a cannabis hunt hours after their wedding.

However, the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer and Herridge patched things up, and on Wednesday, O’Connor took to Twitter to announce the happy news in graphic detail to her 1,773 followers.

“Guess who had a mad love making affair with her own husband last night?” she wrote under her Twitter handle @vampyahslayah . “Spent beautiful evening of love making with nine [none] other than husband!”

She said the pair decided to “be boyfriend and girlfriend again” and to go to counseling to help their relationship.

O’Connor, whose Twitter account warns “DO NOT FOLLOW IF UNDER 18,” then went into further details on the couple’s reunion.

She tweeted “yay!!! me husband is a big hairy cave man an came to claim me with his club : ) and now im in cave-land.. yay!!”

She confirmed to one curious follower that the couple would not go ahead with a divorce, adding, “An I can add to my lingerie collection. Size uk 12 btw for anyone wanting to send any. 36b.”

The Grammy Award winner divorced her third husband, Steve Cooney, last year and admitted that her subsequent wedding to Herridge — in the back of a pink Cadillac on her 45th birthday – was rushed.

“I truly believe though it is painful to admit, we made a mistake rushing into getting married,” she wrote on sineadoconnor.com last month.

She blamed their split on “intense pressure placed upon him by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me,” adding, “And also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don’t drink.”

O’Connor previously was married to music producer John Reynolds and journalist Nicholas Sommerlad and has four children.
