Sinead O’Connor thinks Rolling Stone magazine has gone too far this time. The publication features a photo of Kim Kardashian on its most recent cover, and O’Connor is beyond disgusted.
In a Facebook rant, Sinead O’Connor claims that music has died and Rolling Stone murdered it–all because of the very sexy Kim Kardashian shot. The post is no longer available on her Facebook page, but Billboard managed to capture it before it disappeared.
“What is this c–t doing on the cover of Rolling Stone?” Sinead O’Connor wrote on Tuesday. “Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be f-cking horrified.”

Sinead O’Connor might have cause to complain if Kim Kardashian was the first non-musical celebrity to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone. That is definitely not the case, however.
This also isn’t the first time O’Connor has been outspoken about celebrities. Back in 2013, she wrote to Miley Cyrus regarding her ‘Wrecking Ball’ music video.
“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,” Sinead O’Connor wrote at the time. “It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping.”
It is interesting to note that there have been many comparisons drawn between Sinead O’Connor’s 1990 music video ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and Miley Cyrus’s ‘Wrecking Ball.’
Maybe Sinead O’Connor was jealous of Miley Cyrus? Is she now jealous of Kim Kardashian?
Perhaps Sinead O’Connor simply has nothing better to do than complain.
