Sinead O’Connor Threatens Legal Action Against Miley Cyrus

The anti-BFF’s Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor are stirring things up again.
It all started when Cyrus gave a nod to O’Connor in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, claiming her “Wrecking Ball” video was a “modern version” of O’Connor’s iconic hit “Nothing Compares 2 U.” But O’Connor is no fan of Cyrus’ new video and let it be known in a lengthy open letter to the former Disney star.
Did Cyrus let it go? What do you think? Cyrus tweeted a screen shot of past posts O’Connor made when she was seeking psychiatric help and put it under the heading “before Amanda Bynes…. There was….”
“You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent,” O’Connor wrote in a SECOND open letter to Cyrus via Facebook. “In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help.” At which time O’Connor requested, “Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers.”
But the tweets remain, now joined by the following comments, “Sinead. I don’t have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week” and “So if youd like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)”
In her next letter (her THIRD and hopefully final), O’Connor responded, “I have no interest whatsoever in meeting you.” She goes on to hammer Cyrus for “behaving in an anti-female capacity,” and stated that “legal proceedings” are forthcoming, since Cyrus allegedly “designed to damage” her career.
But according to the Irish singer, there is still one way Cyrus can avoid a messy courtroom showdown simply by issuing a public apology.
Right now for whatever reason anything Cyrus touches or Cyrus related (both good and bad) drives hits, exposure and controversy. It seems to us that O’Connor is simply using this to elevate her own profile. Really, when was the last time you asked yourself “I wonder what Sinead O’Connor is up to?” Exactly!
