Sinead O’Connor vs. Miley Cyrus
Nothing compares 2 this budding rivalry. Funny enough, it all began with a compliment: Cyrus acknowledged that some of her recent creative/aesthetic decisions, including her ”Wrecking Ball” video, were inspired by O’Connor’s ”Nothing Compares 2 U.” But O’Connor strongly objected to the association and lectured Miley in a lengthy open letter. Cyrus responded more succinctly, and a little immaturely, via Twitter, evoking O’Connor’s troubled history. This set things off, prompting O’Connor to pen not one but two more letters — so far.
Winner: The Postal Service (not the erstwhile electronic band). Never has letter-writing been so popular! But really, though, it’s obviously ongoing.
