Oh boy, did Sinead O'Connor know how to stir up some drama in the music world! The iconic pop star had her fair share of controversies, and one of the juiciest was her clash with the wild child herself, Miley Cyrus, back in 2013.
It all started when Miley admitted that O'Connor's classic hit, "Nothing Compares 2 U," inspired her infamous naked wrecking ball video. Well, let's just say Sinead wasn't exactly thrilled about being associated with Miley's risqué antics.
In true diva fashion, O'Connor penned an open letter to the 30-year-old songstress, giving her a piece of her mind. She warned Miley about the dark side of the music biz, where artists are often exploited for their sexuality rather than their talent. It was a classic "drop the mic" moment.
But Miley, never one to back down, took the letter as a personal attack. In retaliation, she threw some serious shade by sharing O'Connor's tweet seeking help for mental health issues. Low blow, Miley!
And then, the ultimate clapback move – Miley posted that infamous O'Connor photo where she tore up the Pope's picture on live TV. Yikes! That pic almost destroyed Sinead's career back in the day.
But hey, Miley's not all bad. In the midst of the feud, she managed to find some nice words for O'Connor's musical talents. She acknowledged that the Irish singer was indeed a great artist and songwriter. Guess she couldn't resist giving a compliment even while in the middle of a catfight.
Of course, the drama didn't end there. Miley went on The Today Show to talk about the feud, praising O'Connor as an inspiration for her "Wrecking Ball" video. But she also couldn't help but wonder why Sinead would pick a fight when she was showing respect and love. Oh well, it's the world of celebs – who can understand it?
In the end, it seemed like Miley was ready to bury the hatchet and move on. She's a big fan of Sinead, after all, and nothing was going to change that.
So there you have it – a fiery feud between two pop divas that kept us all entertained. They may have clashed, but they also showed us that in the world of glitz and glam, things can get as wild as Miley's twerking!
