Dear Sinead O’Connor:
I read your “open letter” to Miley Cyrus so I thought that I would provide you with an open letter of my own. You don’t know me and probably don’t give a flying Guinness what I think. Such is the Internet, however, so here goes anyway.
It is no secret that I cannot stand Miley Cyrus, either. She is a talentless hack who only got famous because of her daddy’s Achy Breaky Heart which allowed her to get the Hannah Montana gig. Nepotism at its finest. Nothing new in Hollywood, though. Just look at Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, and Angelina Jolie.
However, you need to realize just how suspect you come across when you, who have no career to speak of at the moment, decide to comment on something that is currently lighting up the topical meter like Times Square in December in an apparent attempt to draw attention to yourself. I’m willing to bet that, in the next few weeks, we’ll hear about some project of yours that is going to be released. Maybe a new album, a memoir, a podcast, a depilatory cream, an alopecia drug with your name on it. Whatever it is, the timing of this moral soapbox you’re on about Miley Cyrus being “pimped” and the release of the project will be quite convenient.
Miley Cyrus is now an adult; legally, anyway, emotionally is another story. However, for the purposes of her behavior (though not alcohol consumption at least for another year) she is free to do as she pleases. She is a free citizen of the U.S. You remember what it was like to be an impulsive young woman, don’t you? Weren’t you the one who shaved your head to draw attention to “the troubles” as they’re known where you’re from? Commenting on someone else’s ploy for attention is hypocritical given your past, is it not?
I am not some Miley Cyrus apologist. In fact, In a recent post, I called her garbage. I stand by this. However, your commenting on her is hypocritical and just another head-shaving stunt, in my opinion.
