...and starts one with Simon Cowell

Sinead O'Connor has ended her feud with Miley Cyrus - to start one with Simon Cowell.

In a bizarre twist of events, Sinead O'Connor suddenly found herself flung onto global front pages last week. Noting that Miley Cyrus had cited her as an influence during an interview with Rolling Stone, the Irish singer penned an open letter to the one time Disney child star.

The results were extraordinary. Quickly becoming viral, fans rushed to analyse O'Connor's message, before Miley Cyrus posted a series of dis-paraging tweets about the Irish artist.

In an interview on the Late Late Show, Sinead O'Connor spoke to host Ryan Tubridy about the row. "As far as I'm concerned it's over" she said, before adding: "it's not something I really want to talk about." (via NME)

Continuing, the Irish singer broadened her scope. "It's about music being murdered, it's not actually about Miley" she said. "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".

"The industry has taken over so much, the money-making side of it, that the sexualising of extremely young people making records, and all the worship with money and bling and diamonds, all the Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh - it all amounts to the murder of music and that's what concerns me."
