Sinead O’Conner Writes Open Letter To Miley Cyrus

miley[Cyrus] compares her recent music video for her single “Wrecking Ball” to that of Sinead O’Connor’s famed 1990 single, “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

This comparison prompted O’Connor to pen an open letter to Cyrus, commenting on her place in the music business, and urging her not to rely on “allowing [herself] to be exploited.”

“I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos,” O’Connor wrote in the piece. “It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping. Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.”
