Sinead O’Connor has penned an open letter to Miley Cyrus in response to her recent "Rolling Stone" interview, in which Miley said that Sinead's iconic music video for "Nothing Compares 2 U" was part of the inspiration for her "Wrecking Ball" clip. In it, Cyrus is seen licking a sledgehammer and swinging naked on a wrecking ball. O'Connor warned Miley writing that, "The music business doesn't give a sh*t about you, or any of us", according to USA Today on Oct. 3.
O'Connor wrote the letter out of what she called the spirit of motherliness, obviously feeling the need to respond to the former Disney star's comments.

She said nothing good will come of her antics in the long run, and that includes whether she's being exploited either by the music biz, or doing it herself.
Sinead called Cyrus out for stripping off her clothes and sending the wrong message to young women, that it's okay to be valued for your sex appeal over your natural talent.
O'Connor wrote that's not empowerment. She warned that they'll prostitute her for all she's worth, and not look back or care if and when she falls.
Sinead wrote that we don't encourage our daughters to walk around naked in this world because it makes them prey for animals.
Sinead O'Connor, 46, is also no stranger to controversy. In 1992 the Irish singer famously tore up a picture of Pope John Paul II saying "Fight the real enemy", on SNL.
Sinead did pepper her harsh words for Miley with loads of praise, telling the young artist she's plenty talented to not have to pull these stunts in order to distance herself from her Hannah Montana days.

These same arguments have been lodged at Rihanna lately, as she continues to release videos that are coming under fire for depicting violence towards women.
Supposedly done under the umbrella of titillation and a fetish for S&M, Rihanna's also taking heat for possibly sending a dangerous message to young girls who look up to her.
Thursday, Miley tweeted out a pic of Sinead's tweets with the caption, "Before Amanda Bynes...there was...".
