and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, they will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone … I repeat, you have enough talent that you dont need to let the music business make a prostitute of you. You shouldnt let them make a fool of you either. Ethan Miller/Getty Miley Cyrus told Rolling Stone her ‘Wrecking Ball’ video was designed to be similar to the one for O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares.’ Read O’Connor’s complete, intense, obscenity-filled, open letter below: Dear Miley, I wasnt going to write this letter, but today ive been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your Wrecking Ball video was designed to be similar to the one for Nothing Compares So this is what I need to say And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love. I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way cool to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping. Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent. I am happy to hear I am somewhat of a role model for you and I hope that because of that you will pay close attention to what I am telling you. The music business doesnt give a sh about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think its what YOU wanted.. and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, they will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone. None of the men oggling you give a sh about you either, do not be fooled. Manys the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesnt mean they give a f about you. All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you dont give much of a f about yourself. And when you employ people who give the impression they dont give much of a f about you either.
Sinead O’Connor Writes Open Letter Advising Miley Cyrus Not To ‘Prostitute’ Herself To The Music Industry
I also tend to drag my equipment outside on a lovely day and work in the sun, all of my senses immersed in gorgeous Maine nature. When I am surrounded by beauty, I feel I produce work that emits more beauty. What is the inspiration behind your jewelry? The basic inspiration for my work is people. I love people. I want to incite joy, empowerment and a sense of inner beauty in everyone that sees and wears my work. Like a favorite song you want to hear over and over, I want them to look at that piece I made for them and always reach for it. I am inspired by primitive beauty and handmade toolsthings youd find in an archaeological dig or an old attic. Pieces with mystery that inspire story telling. I love things that display a quality of being hand made. I am drawn to organic shapes and textures; metals that unabashedly wear their age in rich warm patinas; stones with deep natural hues as well as ones with an airy vacancy to themI especially love stones with inclusions that convey a unique character. I am also drawn to the folklore behind stones, gems and metals and he powers that humans attribute to them. I love moss green and turquoise, red and orange.
