Sinead O’Connor Pens Open Letter to Miley Cyrus

Sinead O’Connor seemed compelled to offer troubled star Miley Cyrus some girl-to-girl advice on the ins and outs of the music business in what I like to classify as a compliment sandwich. She wrote an open letter to Miley, the full version of which can be read here, at Entertainment Weekly.

After viewing her latest antics capped off with her “Wrecking Ball” video, Sinead genuinely seems concerned for Miley’s well-being and her future, and is firm but encouraging in her guidance.

“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,” Sinèad wrote. “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.”

She also offered Miley a few choice words of warning about the music industry:

“The music business doesn’t give a sh*t about you, or any of us,” she continues. “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.”

Sinèad also seemed to want to make clear to Miley, 20, that while the controversy-loving starlet tried to attribute inspiration for the “Wrecking Ball” video to O’Connor’s iconic “Nothing Compares to You” video, she clearly misunderstood the true spirit of it. She wrote,

“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.”


Yeah…I don’t see it. At all.

And, the lovely Sinead O’Connor spoke for all of us when she gently advised her to PUT SOME CLOTHES ON!

“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,” she wrote. “Your records are good enough for you not to need any shedding of Hannah Montana. She’s waaaaaaay gone by now.. Not because you got naked but because you make great records.”

Miley generally doesn’t respond to her critics directly very often, but I’d be curious to see how she’d take some decent guidance from someone who’s already been there.

    Sinead also bashed men completely and as a typical lunatic feminist does, puts all the responsibility for the self-serving choices of a women on the men around her. Sinead O’Connor was a short lived, one hit wonder who is literally crazy. She has had multiple suicide attempts and these tweets sum up her mental state of mind (Sinead O’Connor August 31, 2011 Tweets):

    “My shit-uation sexually/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good as are inappropriate and/or unavailable men and/or inappropriate and/or unavailable fruits and vegetables. I tell you yams are looking like the winners.” She went on to say: “Let me now take time to make VERY clear that yes I ‘do anal’ and in fact I would be deeply unhappy if ‘doing anal’ wasn’t on the menu, amongst everything else$$ So if u don’t like ‘the difficult brown’.. Don’t apply…”

    The reality is that Miley is freely choosing to do the things that she is doing. Miley Cyrus is worth $150 million dollar and is set for life. Her family is sent for generations. Her mother (a woman) is her own manager. If Miley did not want to do these things, all she has to do is quit. It is that simple.

    The reality in life is that all people make choices and that includes women. It is time for women to take responsibility for their own actions and own choices — why does nothing ever improve? Because women simply do not want to accept responsibility for anything. It is always someone else’s fault.

    Miley. Rihanna. Lady Gaga. Madonna. Britney. Kim Kardashian. Heck, even Jennifer Anniston and Carmen Diaz are taking of their clothes. The list goes on and on of women using sex to advance their careers.

    It is not men forcing them to do this. They are choosing to do this and they are getting paid very well. Women are some of the greediest people on earth. They are all about money. The mask it well, but that is the reality. Ever hear a woman say they want someone who is stable and secure? Well that is all about money —- it isn’t love. American women have become the most materialistic women on the face of this planet and so very deluded. They actually believe their lives are hard.

    Miley is simply doing what she chooses to do. Quit with the “victim” card. Men are getting sick of it and that can be seen in the recent polls on men 24-35 regarding the subject of marriage. One day, women are going to get exactly what they want and then they will see how hard life really is.

    Then again, we know that every woman in America is a “victim”. Even the ones that are worth one-fifth of a billion dollars.

      You must have met some really nasty women. Because I raised my kids alone, struggling to work 60 hour work weeks to provide for my kids independantly until I found a man who was worth being in a solid relationship with. He makes less than I do but is not afraid to work hard. He is only average in looks, but has a heart of gold. We aren’t all materialistic and evil, so please, don’t portray us all that way.

      • @Elizabeth

        I hope you don’t have a son because he will most definitely have to deal with today’s woman.

        I commend what you are doing with your life but really I was speaking to a larger issue. Women simply never take responsibility for their actions. O’Connor’s premise is that men are behind all the decisions of women and are using them. The reality is that these women know exactly what they are doing and are choosing to do it. Furthermore, they are benefiting greatly by their own choices. They are not being taken advantage of at all. You of all people should know this. The average person doesn’t make a million dollars in a LIFETIME let alone $150 million dollars by the age of 20.

        Do you know how many men are in prison for things that women fully choose to participate in? The reality is that women make choices but are never held accountable for their own choices.

        I know it is not everyone though — but it is the majority. Women have changed so much in the past 10-15 years.

    Miley is reaching. Having, at best, minimal sexual appeal, she goes after the outrageous and rediculous. She likes seeing her name in the papers and, like the old saying goes, “I don’t care what they say about me as long as they spell my name right”. When she runs out of her schtick, which will be sooner rather than later, she will be a foot note in entertainment news.
