In a recent interview, Miley Cyrus said her controversial Wrecking Ball video was inspired by Sinead O'Connor's video for the track "Nothing Compares 2 U."

Having learned of this statement, the 46-year old Irish singer has reached out to the lightning rod of a 20-year0old artist via an open letter on the Internet.

In it, she offers both a scathing critique and a few words of inspiring wisdom.

  • Miley Cyrus Puckering Up

O'Connor, who knows a bit about causing controversy herself, writes:

"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."

"It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether it's the music business or yourself doing the pimping."

Troubled, erratic singer Sinead O'Connor is pulling the plug on her upcoming tour after a "serious breakdown" caused by what she says is bipolar disorder.

The Irish songstress, who spent much of 2011 worrying fans with profane, sort of suicidal Twitter rants, canceled the 2012 tour dates on doctors' advice.

"With enormous regret I must announce that I have to cancel all touring for the year as am very unwell due to bipolar disorder," she writes on her website.

Right after her days-long marriage to Barry Herridge ended, Sinead had checked into a hospital for depression, saying she was "routinely misdiagnosed" as bipolar.

In reality, she said, she suffered PTSD stemming from her childhood. Now it seems she's singing a different tune and believes her problems are more serious.

"As you all know I had a very serious breakdown between December and March and I had been advised by my doctor not to go on tour," O'Connor writes.

"So stupidly I ignored his advice to my great detriment, attempting to be stronger than I actually am. I apologize sincerely for any difficulties this may cause."

The Grammy winner says that she hopes to be well enough to attend a planned Curtis Mayfield tribute at Manhattan's Lincoln Center in July.

Sinead O'Connor says she's eager to do some crazy $h!t she didn't have a chance to do when she was younger. Like, for example, pose nude for Playboy.

Ummyeah. No thanks?

"There's so much I wouldn't (sic) liked to do when I was younger and I was too miserable and Irish," she tells the Word magazine, which apparently exists.

"A Playboy shoot is on my bucket list," she adds. "And I like the idea of doing some interview in weird sex gear, talking about something really serious."

"Like the economy! You can still talk about serious issues while you're b**lock ass naked, down on all fours, in your dog collar!"

No word on whether Hugh Hefner is considering this enticing offer.

O'Connor has been in the news recently thanks to various suicidal Twitter missives and marriages/breakups/reconciliations/splits with Barry Herridge.

Nothing compares 2 heartache for Sinead O'Connor.

Just weeks after she married Barry Herridge in a quickie Vegas wedding, then split with him just 18 days later, only to reunite a few days later, she's ending the union.

For good this time. Sinead said in a statement:

"I will never again associate myself romantically with anyone as I could not bear to see these things done to someone I love," said Sinead, who was Tweeting her own cry for psychiatric help this week, regarding media scrutiny of Barry.

"These people, along with others caused enormous damage deliberately and maliciously to my innocent flower of a husband, purely because he was with me."

"And so his association with me became something very bad for his life."

"And slowly since we were married I became very ill as result of what was done to my husband and I was unable to cope. And became very depressed."

Sinead O'Connor's Tweets continue to defy comprehension.

The oft-married Irish singer launched into a worrisome Twitter rant Wednesday, practically begging her followers for a referral to a Dublin psychiatrist, saying she was in desperate need of medication and in "serious danger."

What caused this sudden and disturbing downward spiral and plea for help? Continuing fallout and criticism from her maligned marriage to Barry Herridge.

Who says true love can't find a way: Sinead O'Connor and Barry Herridge, who recently separated after 18 days of marriage, are now giving it another shot!

The singer took to Twitter to announce that she and Herridge, who wed last month, then split up, were very much on again once more just one week later.

"Guess who had a mad lovemaking affair with her own husband last night?" she Tweeted, adding that "mother-----s who dont like it me all happy!!"

Eloquent, Sinead O'Connor. Eloquent.

Sinead O'Connor and Husband

O'Connor married Herridge, a drug counselor, on December 8 in Vegas (not a good sign), but split amid "intense pressure" from people in Herridge's life.

"The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man," Sinead told The Sun (UK) way back in the day. "It felt like I was living in a coffin."

"It was going to be a coffin for both of us and I saw him crushed."

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer acknowledged she and Herridge had rushed into the marriage the first time around, but will now be taking things slow.

"Yay!!! we decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend an stay married but we did rush so we gonna return to b friend g friend an be sickenly happy," she wrote.

Hey, she's trying a hell of a lot harder than Kim Kardashian. Just sayin' ...

In sad news today, Sinead O'Connor and Barry Herridge are getting divorced.

If it seems like they just got married, it's because they did. On December 9!

It was a great 18-day run for the couple. To put that in perspective, Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries lasted four times longer than these two.

Why the change of heart, Sinead? The singer explained on her website:

Sinead O'Connor, Husband

"Dear friends, I had for reasons u (sic) will all understand, wished to keep this private but have been told today it is to be leaked in the next few days despite my best efforts ... So I must now leak it myself so as the record is straight."

"Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband's life. And also by a bit of a wild ride I took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me (sic) wedding night as I don't drink."

"My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected (sic) by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage."

"It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear... A woman wants to be a joy to her husband."

"So... U (sic) love someone? Set them free."

Words to live by, people. Words to live by.

Sinead O'Connor tied the knot yesterday. The lucky man is Barry Herridge.

Just as she'd planned, the singer and her fiance said "I do" in quite the non-traditional fashion - while sitting in the back of a pink Cadillac in Las Vegas.

"She wanted to do the whole thing in a Cadillac. That was her thing," a source said of the ceremony, which began with the pair arriving around 7 p.m.

In a pink, low-cut dress revealing her tattoos, the "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer filled out paperwork before settling into the Caddy on the Vegas Strip.

"It wasn't a traditional dress, but it wasn't a traditional wedding either," says the source. "Sinead cried during the vows and had to wipe her eyes."

After the 10 minute ceremony, Sinead O'Connor and her new husband lit candles as employees of the chapel sang "Happy Birthday" to the bride.

It was also her 45th birthday, after all!
