Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor; whoda thunk you’d see those two in one sentence.

Sinead O’Connor sent an open letter to Miley Cyrus more or less telling her that her advisers should be dumped for they aren’t in it for her good but theirs. Here
Cyrus responded on Twitter by telling her to rack off and had a list of tweets a few years old.
Then O’Connor in what can only be called an older woman cutting the ground from a younger one returned. This
These letters are actually worth a read for it displays in O’Connor a very active brain. One that Cyrus simply isn’t armed to deal with.
It may seem odd but the cynic in me isn’t lit like a lighthouse. Yes, I read O’Connor’s oar in the water as an attempt by a jaded star to climb on the back of a younger one and if it was virtually anyone else you’d say that may be a possibility. But here, nope.

    I knew all this was going on, but had not read the letters from O’Connor in their entirety….. so thanks for providing the links. I believe O’Connor has the girl’s best interests at heart, but Cyrus obviously isn’t receptive to advice or criticism. I noticed somewhere yesterday that she is now the darling of all the current Rap celebrities.

      Yes, the way I took it was that O’Connor was directing her ire towards an industry she knows only too well. But she used Cyrus to an extent to achieve that end.
      I do believe she’s correct al the same. I don’t see this ending well at all. And having Rap celebs lauding your efforts from their well known respect for females must scare the bejapers out of her friends and family.

    Oh twitter…
    Miley is a hot mess, or at least that’s what she wants us to think. Or maybe it’s a ploy to get everyone talking about her and selling tons of records so she’ll make gobs of money. So far she’s three for three.
    As for the letter. I had not heard about it so took some time to read through the links. At first I wondered why Sinead O’Connor was even acknowledging this train wreck, but then read that her music was being compared to in Rolling Stone. I can see where she was coming from, but if anyone remembers being a teenager, advice falls on deaf ears and then to publically give it is like backing a wild animal into a corner. Cyrus’s responses were mean spirited, on the other hand what did O’Connor think would happen.
    I haven’t been able to jump on the twitter bandwagon for this very reason. There’s a time and a place to call someone out or settle an argument, but I just don’t see social media being that appropriate place. It makes the participants sound likea bunch of 12-year-old “mean girls”.

    On a side note…I do think your theme’s font is smaller. And have your removed the notebook lines?

    • V.H says:

      I liked the notepad look but it wouldn’t allow me to colour the links. So if I wanted to link to wiki you couldn’t see it.
      This is a new design entirely. And yes the font is small but I think it’s sharp enough to view it all the same. I still cannot make it 14pt for general readability. It’s about a 10pt now. If you Ctrl+ it will bring it to 14pt ishy.

      Motive. That’s the issue with all of this. If we take our Lindsey, she just wasn’t armed to be treated as an animal to be farmed. That she was the product, not her works. She didn’t know, mentally, how to deal with it. Hilton did.
      Undoubtedly Miley could be a skank by nature but if that was the case none would give a hoot. But there is a seeming brittleness here.

      As to Twitter. It’s far far less intrusive than Facebook. And if you keep a firm eye on it and choose whom you want to read you are in control as much as you are anyplace on the WWW. Btw, I’m not following either O’Connor or Cyrus. What happened was the Huffington Post twitter feed had a reference to O’Connor and I went ‘mmm, I wonder what the Mad Baldy Wan has done now’. -That name coined by an ex-gf who was, if anything, far more certifiable that O’Connor ever was.-
      Musically speaking, and to an extent what was driving O’Connor in her heyday. Madonna too. The Catholic control thing is to the fore very much in both womens work. Less so these days of course.

      Is a ‘hot mess’ crap or vomit. Is that the reference.

      • Kimberly says:

        Just someone who is falling apart or can’t seem to get it together. I don’t know where the term came from, but it very well could have come from either of those.
        My fundamental issue with twitter, and Facebook, and even blogging is that people write things they’d never dream of saying to someone in person. It’s led to this poor treatment of others. And because of its public nature, the meanness just cycles over and over, not wanting the other to have the last word. I understand not everyone uses it in that matter, but it doesn’t help that the arguments, threats, and passive aggressive posts are publicized far more than anything positive or helpful.
        Something that made me chuckle was the thought of the letter O’Connor wrote being typed in numerous lines of 140 characters or less. That was a long letter to tweet, don’t you think?

        • V.H says:

          I wondered the about the etymology. It seemed to be a euphemism in a polite way to say ‘you look like shit’.

          O’Connor wrote it in Facebook it seems, not on Twitter. On O’Connor, a few years ago she reported Shane McGowan (The Pogues) to the police giving some ‘for his own good’ BS. I took her cutting her hair -where she ended up looking prettier-, reaction to the Church and the Mother Bernadette rubbish, OHHHH and her ordination, as attention seeking but benign. That thing with McGowan, No. That was ugly and nasty.
          She has a gaggle of kids Cyrus’s age. Could be she is looking at things from that position.

    Things like this never surprise me anymore. It seems as if young stars doing something “shocking” are a dime a dozen these days. They make the news for a cycle or two and then disappear. Kind of like O’Conner did with her picture of the pope. I expect in a year or so, someone out there will be wondering where that young Cyrus girl went.

    • V.H says:

      I’d say that was what Cyrus was after, but I don’t believe she was expecting such a blow back where people aren’t so much shocked as sorry for her. A sad state of affairs for someone aiming to lead a generation in the musical arts.
