The singer appeared on 'The Late, Late Show' and said that the disagreement with Miley was always about the music
Miley Cyrus' apparent feud with Sinead O'connor seems to have blown over already, with the Irish singer declaring that her beef with the 'We Can't Stop' hit-maker has blown over already. O'Connor appeared on Friday night's (4 October) edition of RTE's The Late Late Show, where she discussed the short-lived feud with Cyrus, admitting that she never had any personal problems with the star, as the whole thing was to do with the current state of the music industry.
Sinead also used her appearance on air to show off her new facial tattoos
Rather than continue her conflict with Cyrus, the appearance on the Irish chat show was as much a stage to declare war on Simon Cowell as it was to initiate peace with Miley. Whilst admitting to be no role model herself, the 'Nothin Compares 2 U' singer did reveal why she told Cyrus to stop "prostituting" herself. She declared that the "money making end of music is taking over," admitting that when she was an emerging artist she was asked to grow out her hair and wear revealing outfits, which prompted her to shave off her own hair.
"Artists around the world will agree that music is being murdered, the power of real rock and roll to move people, to change things is being murdered," O'Connor said (via US Magazine). She individually singled out Simon Cowell for being responsible for the gradual downfall of music standards. She told host Ryan Tubridy, "I feel sorry for the murder of music and rock 'n' roll, which has happened because of the industry, Because of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh - they've murdered music. I stand to say it on behalf of every musician in the world and they'll agree with me."
Also being revealed on the night were Sinead's new inkings, the letters B and Q on either cheek. However, the singer wouldn't reveal the meaning behind the letters, leaving us all to speculate whether it could be in relation to ex-Brendan Quinlan, or something completely different.
