Annie Lennox Throws Shade At Miley Cyrus: “Behaving Like Pimp & Prostitute At The Same Time”

“I have to say that I’m disturbed and dismayed by the recent spate of overtly sexualized performances and videos. You know the ones I’m talking about. It seems obvious that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment. As if the tidal wave of sexualized imagery wasn’t already bombarding impressionable young girls enough. I believe in freedom of speech and expression, but the market forces don’t give a toss about the notion of boundaries. As long as there’s booty to make money out of, it will be bought and sold. It’s depressing to see how these performers are so eager to push this new level of low.Their assumption seems to be that misogyny — utilized and displayed through oneself is totally fine, as long as you are the one creating it. As if it’s all justified by how many millions of dollars and YouTube hits you get from behaving like pimp and prostitute at the same time. It’s a glorified and monetized form of self harm.”

’80s British singer Annie Lennox from The Eurythmics wrote a post on Facebook this Saturday clearly directed at Miley Cyrus (“You know the ones I’m talking about”). A skeptical Lennox hopped aboard the same bandwagon as Sinead O’Connor, who last week alleged that Cyrus is being exploited by the record industry and needs to have better handlers. Cyrus was rudely dismissive of O’Connor’s open letter last week, comparing the singer who has struggled with mental illness to Amanda Bynes.

It was classy of Lennox to write these comments without calling out the twerking singer directly — but nevertheless, she found herself adding more commentary on Sunday:

Watch Matt Lauer’s Awkward & Icky Interview With Miley Cyrus On “The Today Show”

Watch Matt Lauer's Awkward & Icky Interview With Miley Cyrus On "The Today Show"
"I'll never look at a foam finger the same way again!"

Alright, I think it’s time to start a petition to ban Matt Lauer from interviewing young famous women on “The Today Show.” It rarely doesn’t tread into uncomfy territory. (Remember when he asked Anne Hathaway about her vagina?) This morning, in between singing her hit songs “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” Lauer interviewed Miley Cyrus about her new album, Bangerz, that whole Sinead O’Connor mess and, of course, her performance at the MTV VMAs last month, and it got … yucky. Watch above.

Miley Cyrus Spoofs The Government Shutdown On “SNL” With “We Did Stop”

Miley Cyrus Spoofs The Government Shutdown On "SNL" With "We Did Stop"
We Did Stop!

I have been feeling complex emotions about Miley Cyrus lately — I begrudgingly love her new album, Bangerz; I hate that she made fun of Sinead O’Connor’s mental issues — but she earned some points back with me with this spoof on “Saturday Night Live.” A raunchy remix of “We Can’t Stop” about the government shutdown, starring John Boehner and Michelle Bachmann? Perfection.

Help, Billy Ray Cyrus And Fred Durst Sang A Song Together

Billy Ray Cyrus performs with Fred Durst
Nooooooooooo!

The only reason I feel any sort of sympathy or human compassion for Miley Cyrus today, or ever, is because her dad just performed a song alongside Fred Durst on “The Arsenio Hall Show.” Worst nightmares realized. Like, I would be so embarrassed if my dad were to so much as breathe the same air as Fred Durst, especially if my dad were already Billy Ray Cyrus. I thank god every day that my dad is my dad and not Billy Ray Cyrus.

Sinead O’Connor Posts 2 More Open Letters To Miley Cyrus, Threatens To Sue

Y’all, this isn’t gonna end, is it? Sinead O’Connor is not happy that Miley Cyrus made fun of her two-year-old nervous breakdown (and Amanda Bynes!) in response to Sinead’s open letter to the twerking pop star. First, to recap: two days ago, Sinead posted an open letter to Miley on her website, advising the singer to not allow herself to be “pimped” and that exploiting her sexuality is distracting from her talent. The letter was clearly written from a well-meaning place, informed largely by Sinead’s experience in the music industry when she was Miley’s age. While aspects of it were verging on school marm-y, Sinead’s tone was kind and giving. Miley responded by posting a screenshot of tweets written by Sinead two years ago, when she was in the midst of a nervous breakdown, comparing O’Connor to Amanda Bynes. Poking fun at not one but two people’s mental health problems? Not okay. And Sinead is pissed. She posted the following to her Facebook page yesterday:

Miley… Really? Who the fuck is advising you? Because taking me on is even more fuckin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. 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. Keep reading »
