Sinead O'Connor Writes FOURTH Letter to Miley Cyrus, Pleads: Do the Right Thing!

by at . Comments

So much for the end of the Sinead O'Connor-Miley Cyrus feud.

During her Today Show interview with Matt Lauer this week, Cyrus referred to O'Connor as an "incredible artist" and reiterated that she drew inspiration from the Irish singer for her "Wrecking Ball" video.

But she also said she didn't understand how O'Connor could praise her one moment (in Sinead's first open letter) and then follow that up by saying 'you suck!'"

That's not at all what O'Connor said, of course, but the nuances of her music industry critique appears to have gone over Miley's head.

"It's all good. You can write as many open letters as you want," Miley concluded in her NBC chat. "That's really what blogging is. I get open letters every day. It's nothing too new for me."

And so Sinead has taken this advice and penned a fourth missive to Cyrus, this time laying out exactly why she's angry and again asking for an apology.

"My problem with you stems from your response to my first letter," O'Connor again write on Facebook. "Until you exposed me ( And Amanda Bynes) to abuse on the grounds of my having sought help (extremely coherently) to save my life, when experiencing suicidal compulsion as a side effect of a medication called Tegretol, I had no problem with you whatsoever."

Indeed, it's Miley's dig at O'Connor's history of mental illness that now truly irks the star.

"I would very much like you please to apologize to myself and Amanda Bynes for having perpetuated abuse of both of us on the grounds that Amanda has had ‘mental health issues' and that I experienced suicidal compulsion and was open about seeking help in order to save my life," Sinead writes.

"This should also involve an apology to all sufferers of mental health difficulties and all those who have had experience of suicidal feelings or who have been affected by suicide."

O'Connor said numerous people have urged her to "commit suicide" as a result of Miley's Tweet.

"I doubt you thought clearly before doing what you did and I'm willing to give you the benefit of doubt on that, as I'd find it hard to believe someone so young could be that calculatedly evil to anyone, never mind someone who did absolutely nothing to deserve such abuse, or to be set up for such abuse from others," she writes, continuing:

"I have no interest in the ‘feud' which media want. There is no ‘feud' as far as I am concerned. What there is however.. Is a lot of very serious harm caused to myself and my children and probably to Amanda, and DEFINITELY to silent sufferers of your own age who may look up to you."

The 46-year old then asks Miley to "restore" her "dignity" and closes with a plea:

"Please do the right thing. You will actually save lives by doing so. There are people who will NOT die tonight, if you are brave enough to state that there is nothing whatsoever wrong with any person seeking publicly or privately, help, in order to stay alive. And that there are no circumstances under which it is acceptable for anyone to use mental illness as a stick with which to beat people."

Sound off below with your take on O'Connor's latest and choose a side in the rivalry:


Sinead brought this on herself. Open letters are childish ways to get yourself attention. If she cared she would have reached out to Miley through her contacts in the music industry. Sinead is a has been one hit wonder who needed a boost and is riding Miley's coattails. And Miley, stop with the tongue already....the eights are long over!

@ mike

Miley could learn something if she'd listen because Sinead has been there and done all that, and has learned it didn't bring her happiness. In fact if Miley spent time watching the lives of other entertainers, past and present, she might come to learn what REALLY brought them happiness so she could aim to doing the same thing for herself so she could be happy too. Instead, she's headed for sadness and failure, unless she starts making drastic changes. Just watch and see!


Why should she apologize? No. Sinead is fucked up and leave it at that! Miley did nothing wrong. People keep hammering and hammering at Miley so no matter what she does now, all the critisism comes out. Give her a break!

@ queenofpoland

Sinead is NOT FU!!! She's been there and done that, as many entertainers have, and she knows it's not what brings one happiness. If Miley would only spend the time she spends with her tongue out doing a little research on what brought other entertainers happiness and sadness, she'd know how to map her own life to happiness too. Instead, she just closes up, shuts everyone out, and keeps doing the same thing over and over again, each more bizarre than the trick she performed before. She's headed towards unhappiness, maybe even an early death. Just watch!!!


Go Sinead! Smiley Miley please apologize.

@ jill

I don't think Miley needs to apologize. I think she needs to shut up, wise up and look around to see who's trying to help her and who is dead weight in her life - starting with her lame parents. Then she'd come to realize Sinead was just trying to help...persistently, cause she cares about the kid.
