Irish chanteuse Sinead O’Connor has waded into the Miley Cyrus controversy, warning the young singer to avoid being sexually exploited by the music industry.
O’Connor posted an open letter to Cyrus on Thursday after Cyrus told journalists she had modeled her Wrecking Ball video on O’Connor’s famous Nothing Compares 2 U.
The advice didn’t go down well.
Cyrus responded on Twitter by mentioning O’Connor’s struggles with bipolar disorder.
