Incredible Badass Feminist Sinead O’Connor Doesn’t Want To Be Called A Feminist

“I don’t think of myself as being a feminist. So I don’t really think about feminism a whole lot, to be honest. I wouldn’t label myself anything, certainly not something with an ‘ism’ or an ‘ist’ at the end of it.

So much so, in fact, that she’s named her upcoming album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss — and that’s the very sexy cover image above. You may remember the phrase “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss” coming out of

This Miley Cyrus/Sinead O’Connor “Nothing Compares To Wrecking Ball” Mashup Is Awesome

In my dreams, Miley and Sinead decide to be grown ass women who, at the end of the day, respect each other’s work, go out for a beer and have a cool, smart, healthy debate about sexual expression/exploitation in the music biz. Then they head to the studio and record a song together and it…

4 Things I Would Tell Miley Cyrus If She Was Willing To Listen To And Consider Any Criticism

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.
