Miley Cyrus/Sinead O’Connor Mashup Goes ViralBy: Amanda Crum - October 7, 2013
Miley Cyrus has been in the headlines more in recent weeks than she has in her entire life after a breakup with studly beau Liam Hemsworth, a sexually-charged VMAs performance with Robin Thicke, and a well-received week at SNL, which she hosted this past weekend.
But the 20-year old actress and singer has gotten some attention from fellow musicians, as well, most notably for her provocative style of dress. One musician in particular–Sinead O’Connor–didn’t take too kindly to the young star’s VMAs show or her new video for “Wrecking Ball”, in which she swings naked on a giant–you guessed it–wrecking ball and licks a sledgehammer. So much so, in fact, that she wrote an open letter to Cyrus and basically told her to cover up or regret it later.
“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,” O’Connor wrote. “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.”
Now, producer Robin Skouteris has taken the time to mashup “Wrecking Ball” and O’Connor’s hit “Nothing Compares To U” because, as you’ll see, the videos are sort of similar. Check out the video below.
