Sinead O'Connor vs. Miley Cyrus: Latest Letters You Gotta Read: 'Who the F— Is Advising You?'

Irish songstress was greatly offended by Cyrus's tweets making fun of her mental illness

The battle between Miley Cyrus and Sinead O'Connor continued on Friday, after the singers responded to each other's open letters and tweets with more open letters and tweets.

“Who the f–k is advising you? Because taking me on is even more f–kin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism,” O'Connor wrote in an open letter to Cyrus, the second such letter in a series of three (so far).

On Thursday, O'Connor penned an open letter to Cyrus on her website, telling the singer to stop being a prostitute and put some clothes on already. Though O'Connor's letter was “said in the spirit of motherliness and with love,” Cyrus responded with two tweets: one with a photo of O'Connor's infamous SNL appearance when she tore up a photo of the pope, and another with a screenshot of O'Connor's tweets from 2011 when she was suicidal. Cyrus also compared O'Connor to Amanda Bynes, who is also struggling with mental illness.

O'Connor made her feelings about Cyrus’ tweets known in a second open letter on her website in which she blasted Cyrus for making light of both mental illness and O'Connor's issues with the Catholic church's treatment of sexual abuse victims.

“It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you,” O'Connor said. “And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry. I hope that you will apologise to Amanda Bynes and to any person who has been wounded by your mockery of those who have suffered. And I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women.”

O'Connor added: “Because taking me on is even more f–kin’ 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.”

O'Connor also warned that she would be seeking legal counsel in the matter: “Have you no sense of danger at all? or responsibility? Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers.”

She repeated the message on Facebook, writing: “Ms Cyrus has today posted tweets of mine which are two years old and which were sent when I was ill and seeking medical help … I wish to confirm that I am quite well and kindly request people cease e mailing me in the mistaken belief these are recent tweets. Ms Cyrus’ lawyers will be contacted by mine regarding this matter.”

Instead of removing the tweets, Cyrus followed them up with two more: “Sinead. I don't have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week. So if youd like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)”

It would seem that O'Connor has no intention of meeting with Cyrus, as she wrote in a third open letter: “I have no interest whatsoever in meeting you.”

“You had plenty of time yesterday to abuse Amanda Bynes .. an entirely innocent party.. and myself.. who also did nothing to deserve your abuse.. along with every other sufferer of mental health problems and every person who suffered abuse at the hands of priests,” O'Connor wrote.

“You can take five minutes today between g- string fuckin’ changes to publicly apologise and remove your abusive tweets.”

There is one condition upon which O'Connor said she would be willing to meet with Cyrus: “When you end up in the psych ward or rehab I'll be happy to visit you.. and would not lower myself to mock you.”

Cyrus has yet to respond to O'Connor's latest letter.

    STFU sinead, you bittah bittah old has-been.

    Miley cyrus lady's and gentlemen.

    What made has-been Sinead O'Connor decide it was her place to publicly deride Cyrus? And now she's getting nastier and nastier. Seems Miley is winning this one. And a lot more. Sinead had what, one hit 25 years ago? That death march, um, song called Nothing Compares? Hated that miserable thing from the first time I heard it.

  • Rob Allen

    “Cyrus has yet to respond to O’Connor’s latest letter.”

    And it deserves no response. O'Connor is just looking for a way to be relevant again, poor thing, nobody even remembered her until this bs. Maybe she can publicly rip up a picture of a Koran, that'll get her noticed.

    • WhiteTonguesAreGROSS

      Yes it does deserve a response, but that little twit isn't capable of responding appropriately. She should have apologized to all the people she insulted with her ignorant comments, but she is far too childish and arrogant for that. Whether or not O'Connor is “relevant” is not the issue. And Cyrus obviously remembered her, as she had previously called her an “inspiration”. O'Connor only addressed the subject after being asked repeatedly to comment. She told the truth and then Cyrus made a total @ss of herself. Again.

        “O'Connor only addressed the subject after being asked repeatedly to comment.”

        Who was asking O'Connor to comment? And who made O'Connor Cyrus’ mother?

        • WhiteTonguesAreGROSS

          Read it yourself, it's in her letter. No one made me YOUR mother.

  • Mary

    miley needs to grow up,.

    Please Sinead, don't let this POS upset you! She claims to model her Wrecking Ball to Nothing Compares To You video, but, yet, missed the mark entirely. Your video was beautiful and tasteful, her video was stupid and ugly. She started the war when she said she got the idea for her video from your video. Funny how you had your clothes on the whole time , I forgot as a woman that female singers once wore clothes. Thankyou Sinead, for reminding me!

  • Siddvicious

    Sinead, don't be upset pretty much all of America knows she is nuts and yes Who is fking advising her???? lol

  • Serena

    O'Conner is an artist, Miley is a Monkey. Next Miley will be flinging poo at people and that'll be the next greatest trend for female performers. It's really just porn and should be categorized in that industry, not mainstream. So really no comparison to O'Conner or any real artists.

  • WhiteTonguesAreGROSS

    Sinead had every right to say what she did, and she was spot on. Miley was the one who brought her into it. And then she responded like the immature, hateful little skank that she is.
