Oh dear, looks like she's heading the same way as Britney Spears.

As Oscar Wilde said "I am too old to know everything".

I think Miley has a point. Sinead is hardly a paragon of virtue.

Crash & Burn!!!

All this shows nothing other than at heart America is really a very puritanical country. The fact that this nonsense has been so controversial really baffles.

What the heck is with Miley Cyrus and sticking out her tongue?

Ah... the crazy days of 1990. John Barnes was rapping for England, I was learning AMOS and playing Kick Off 2, and people actually gave a honk what Sinead O'Connor thinks.

Miley Cyrus gives media celebrity a bad name.

Tessa, you know I love you but considering Miley was all about "I wanted my video to be like yours...: Miley comes out looking like a cow on this. Mental illness isn't funny and I suspect Miley will find that out sooner rather than later.

So glad her fit ex saw the light!

Sinead who?

That's the problem. It shows that We lost our way as a nation virtue and morals, liberalism to a point is fine, but there is way too much of it, nothing wrong being puritanical. I don't want my country to be Sweden, If I want that, then I would move there. This woman is too much, she needs to respect herself and not lower herself and make her look like a laughing stock, not to mention, she needs to learn how to properly sing.

" Miley Cyrus in tit-for-tat exchange…"

Kinda cheeky headline, but then again it IS under Entertainment.

Poor girl. She's let the fame get to her head. She'll be the next Lindsay lohan in ten years.

I was over her over-the-top performance before it even began. Why is there still so much talk about it? Oh yes. Children need something to talk about!

The photo of Sinead O Connor is more tat-for-tit.

I never knew about Miley Cyrus until her twerking performance. Publicists can pat themselves on their own back and say job well done. She is now infamous for being someone who has morphed, and the media are just lapping it up. Rubbing her crotch with giant a rubber finger and sticking her tongue out conspire to make her look like the most abused person on the planet right now. Her team should be saying "that really doesn't look cool", but seem to be egging her on as they know it will just generate more publicity. Sinead could have just turned a blind eye, she should be old enough and wise enough to know that dealing with a child like this, the only outcome would be more naughtiness.

Poor girl. She's let the fame get to her head. She'll be the next Lindsay lohan in ten years.

I reckon three, four max.

Her own father has already admitted months ago that she was down that slope. And himself too as their family is now talking via lawyers. And we don't really how deep in hell they can go, Miley, Lindsay, the Home Alone kid, etc.

Sinead could have just turned a blind eye,

Apparently she first did, but after the 1000th call from media requesting a reaction, she wrote one.

I give her 2 years, 3 max.

The only thing more mysterious to me than how and why Miley Cyrus decided to morph into this half-crazed porn-desperate wannabe everyone is laughing about when she actually has got talent and can carry herself perfectly well on her voice alone, is why Sinead O Connor felt the need to stick her beak in and offer unsolicited advice in the first place.

If Miley feels the need to train-wreck herself in order to learn who she is and how to grow up - let her. Certainly gives us something to read about other than the children bickering on Capitol Hill.

is why Sinead O Connor felt the need to stick her beak in and offer unsolicited advice in the first place.

Because Miley said that her video is based on Sinead's "Nothing compares to you" video and she wanted it to be a classic like that one was. Sinead heard about this and wrote her letter. I'm glad she did. She's got the balls to say what so many have been thinking.

ChibaChick: .....why Sinead O Connor felt the need to stick her beak in and offer unsolicited advice in the first place

Dear Miley,

I wasn't going to write this letter, but today i've been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your Wrecking Ball video was designed to be similar to the one for Nothing Compares....So this is what I need to say....And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love

http://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/oct/03/sinead-o-connor-open-letter-miley-cyrus

The letter was obviously written with compassion and concern for the way Miley has been conducting herself lately. If Miley didn't want Sinead to be honest with her then she shouldn't have compared herself to Sinead or gone on about how the U.S. is a free country so she should be able to express herself freely and so on. That freedom is a two-way street. She showed her arrogance and immaturity when she mocked Sinead and Amanda Bynes for suffering from mental illnesses. Both have had very public breakdowns and deserve compassion not cruelty. Sinead was trying to explain to Miley that she's been around the block a few times and knows how badly the music industry can damage young women so try and learn from her mistakes. Miley's response showed that, if she doesn't suffer from mental problems, she does suffer from the arrogance of youth, a very severe case of it. Sadly, it's going to be very hard to feel compassion for Miley if she does go the way of Britney, Amanda and Sinead given how nasty she's been.

Bass4funk,

Have you been to Sweden?

Miley Cyrus is a sad, pathetic child trying desperately to remain relevant. I don't wish her the mountains of emotional pain that are most certainy coming her way due to her reckless, infantile behavior, but I won't shed a tear when it ultimately does.

Nicely put. Agree.

all this stuff with Miley reminds me of a Mexican artist about 15-20 years ago, she was very controversial at the time, her songs were about "i'm free, I'll do what I want, etc" she was as passionate as you see Miley today, until we discovered that she was mentally disturbed because the step from girl towards young woman was a little traumatic because her manager, married her but at the same time "pimped" her, she behaved very similar like Miley today.

This sudden change when you see a sweet teenager that somehow is a woman (in their own eyes) from one moment to another makes me think that cannot be handled well for some ladies, just as with the Mexican one, Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and many others, the industry pressures these girls to differentiate themselves when they become adults, they body and their hormones are raging out when you are 16 to 20, yet you have legal drinking age at 21, age of majority at 18 and driving license at 16, they are exposed to drugs and sex at very early age. (Miley herself is 20 and she WAS already engaged to Liam Hemsworth, when she was 19), So, suddenly, you are not a teenager but a woman, for Miley, the jump when she was sweet 16-17 to 18-19 was to pass from girl to woman and she suddenly got this all freedom, especially when you have been all your life an artist since childhood under your father which also is an artist and suddenly you are 18 you are legally responsible, you don't have to obey your father, you fall in love, you can do whatever you want with whomever you want, so she made a gamble to do that, so right now it made her more famous but also a train wreck (in my opinion)....

She really need to see a psychiatrist

Agreed, but also add "with whatever you want" too. She was licking a sledgehammer!

Miley totally disgusting licking the sledgehammers, my gosh think she's only 20 but acting like a loser ? Britney Spears way more good than to her.

And people wonder why I gave up on listening to American music and move over to electronica from Europe, then Jpop.
