Surprising Celebrity Music Feuds

Slide 1 of 11

By Francis Whittaker for MSN MusicAmateur twerking champ Miley Cyrus recently revealed the inspiration for her “Wrecking Ball“ video was Sinead O’Connor’s emotional performance in the video for “Nothing Compares 2 U.” In response, the Irish singer suprised Cyrus with a less-than-flattering open letter on Facebook, telling the young singer not let the music industry exploit her sexuality. Cyrus took to Twitter and compared O’Connor to troubled actress Amanda Bynes, posting a screenshot of O’Connor’s Twitter feed from her nervous breakdown two years ago.In response, O’Connor penned another lengthy open letter to Cyrus, blasting her for mocking individuals with mental health issues and threatening to sue. Instead of addressing any of O’Connor’s numerous points, Cyrus replied with a couple of snarky tweets and said, “Sinead. I don’t have time to write you an open letter cause I’m hosting & performing on SNL this week,” adding, “So if you’d like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)”O’Connor then issued a no-less inflammatory response, calling Cyrus ”anti-female” and demanding a public apology.If you’re finding this rivalry a bit confusing, you’re not alone.
