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.
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.

In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help. Keep reading »
I already updated Ami’s previous post about Sinead O’Connor’s open letter to Miley Cyrus with a link and screenshot of Miley’s response on Twitter. But I couldn’t stop thinking about how angry it made me to see her so cruelly dismiss a women she called an inspiration just days ago. Miley may not be listening, but I gotta get this off my chest. Miley, here are four things I would tell you if you were willing to listen to and consider any criticism… Keep reading »
So, Miley Cyrus wasn’t able to go topless at the VMA’s, but she can (almost) do it on Instagram under the guise of “showing off her hair growth.” ”My hair is getttttting so long” was the caption for this selfie the singer posted on Instagram this morning. OK, Miley. [Huffington Post]
Miley Cyrus opened a can of worms when she told Rolling Stone that her “Wrecking Ball” video was inspired by the Sinead O’Connor classic, “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Naturally, this inspired the outspoken singer to pen a thousand-word missive to Miley and post it on her website. In true O’Connor fashion, her open letter cuts both ways — poignant and well, a little crazy. Some excerpts after the jump. Keep reading »
