Miley Cyrus may have learned to deal with negativity from the general public, but when it comes to motherly lectures, she’s not a champion at listening politely. This afternoon, the starlet responded to Sinead O’Connor’s open letter by a) bragging about her own accomplishments, b) making fun of the legendary singer for her history of mental illness and c) letting all of her fourteen million followers know she’s a defensive, mean-spirited jerk.
You can take a look at the tweets in question below…
The back-and-forths between Cyrus and O’Connor began when Miley cited the Irish songstress as a hero during an interview and admitted “Nothing Compares 2 U” was a major inspiration for Wrecking Ball. In response, O’Connor penned an open letter praising Miley for her musical abilities but advising her to stop letting the record executives prostitute her out.
On the one hand, it’s easy to see why Miley was pretty offended by Sinead’s letter. She never asked for advice, and no girl likes to hear someone say she’s being pimped out. Considering she was called out, it’s not particularly mature but still makes sense that she’d want to somehow fire back. On the other hand, however, of all the ways to fire back, why would you call out someone’s battle with mental illness? That’s so trashy and evil and wrong. O’Connor has struggled for years, and through it all, she’s still found the way to record some amazing music.
