To Sinead O'Connor, and everyone else writing "open letters"- for the love of all that is good and pure STOP! It's nice to be heard, but when no one is listening, your point is lost. It is understandable to want women not to be over-exploited, and over-sexualized. It is understandable to be upset about issues as sensitive as mental health. However, after the first letter (we have made it to number five) you really do start to sound just plain crazy.
In case you're late to this party, Sinead O'Connor who is famous for... well she's famous for something, has written Miley Cyrus a number of mind numbing "open letters," scolding Cyrus for her actions and telling her to get "help." She then went on an Irish talk show to say that successful producer Simon Cowell "ruined" the music business. O'Connor also conceded that rock and roll has been "murdered" in her endless rant.
In one of the letters, Sinead stated that she didn't "have time" to accept Miley's invitation to meet and discuss her feelings. If she didn't have time for that, how on earth did she find the time to write four additional letters? Slut-shaming isn't going to make you popular. Being who you are will. Miley has been tweeting pictures of herself laying in bed, watching Disney movies while Sinead is still on an almost 2 week old tirade.
These letters seem nothing more than a desperate attempt by Sinead to try and regain some clout in this world. Most of us had either never heard of her or forgot who she was. Apparently she wanted her life to be private and simple. That is until Miley Cyrus told Rolling Stone magazine that she modeled her "Wrecking Ball" video after Sinead. Has Sinead not noticed that Miley doesn't really seem to care? Open letters are traditionally a form meant to address one person and be heard by many. The problem is that these letters are so hard to get through, readers are bored after the first few paragraphs. Instead of taking a good look at the object of her imaginary feuds, Sinead has written off Miley Cyrus as a child who can't care for herself, or make her own decisions.
Sinead is now saying that Miley Cyrus will be the cause of suicides, and is all but demanding an apology. Perhaps Sinead needs to catch up on her Saturday Night Live, where Miley stated that she "doesn't apologize." Do you think Miley owes O'Connor an apology?
