I never liked the bald or crew cut look on her, that's one of the most instant turn-offs for me in any woman (although some pull it off better than others), but I need long hair.  Even when someone like Natalie Portman cuts her hair super short, I recoil in horror and it kills it for me.  That said, anyone who says that Sinead didn't have a rocking body back in the day, is a liar.  And she exuded sexuality in some of her videos, in a much sexier and less "I need an HIV test just for looking at this" sorta way.  So the comparison is apt.  Now Wong Lee posting her current photo was just unacceptable and I nominate him to be banned just like Doc Delaware. But we're comparing 1990 Sinead to 2013 Miley.

3rd letter already written.  She's churning them out faster than Barbara Cartland (Google it).

This one is whiny and includes absurd legal threats.  She needed to stop after #2.  Here it is:

I have no interest whatsoever in meeting you. You had plenty of time yesterday to abuse Amanda Bynes .. an entirely innocent party.. and myself.. who also did nothing to deserve your abuse.. along with every other sufferer of mental health problems and every person who suffered abuse at the hands of priests.

When you publicly apologise to Amanda and myself and all mental health sufferers as well as all who were abused by priests that will end the matter as far as I am concerned. what you did yesterday was designed to damage me and my career and has caused me enormous distress and harassment and has potential to damage my career, since you deliberately gave the impression those tweets of mine were not two years old but reflect my current condition. If you cannot apologize I will have no choice but to bring legal proceedings against you since it is extremely hard to be given work when people think one is suffering from mental illness.

:D

they said the same stuff about Madonna, and she didnt have much talent (at least as a singer) but she had determination , in the end talent beats looks for longevity so she had something , even if the parents hated her , just like Miley

he exact point that Sinead is making is that in 20 years Miley IS going to wind up looking like her, and she's going to have the psychiatric problems and drug rehabs and lawsuits and bankruptcies and everything else that goes along with what she's doing...........  Assuming she survives that long, in 20 years (or less) we're going to be reading about how Miley said that Sinead was right and she wished she had listened.

not necessarily , Courtney Love is still around 20 years later , warts and all , its 'art' after all. Beiber too, boggles the mind if he is still around in 20 years but there are tons of no-talent parent scaring rebel rouser still around 20-30-40 yrs later

Around in the sense that she hasn't died yet.  The rehabs, depression, lawsuits, etc. are all true for her.  She's a living cliche.  And Courtney Love wasn't a young pop star, she was always most famous for who she married from day one.  Who ever heard of Hole before Kurt Cobain?  She never had her own fame.  She has always been Cobain's crazy wife/widow who gets drunk and makes a fool of herself in public from time to time, before disappearing again into obscurity.  If Cyrus is acting like Love in 20 years, then Sinead called it because that's the type of behavior she's referring to.  

And Madonna is one in a million and has reinvented herself a million times to stay relevant.  That's like picking a random boy band kid out and saying, "You're going to be the next Michael Jackson because that's how he started too."  And in the last 40 years, one kid in a boy band achieved that, Justin Timberlake.  The rest are dead, in jail, or (if they're lucky) living in obscurity.  You have a better chance of being hit by lightning than winding up as fortunate as Madonna or Timberlake.

WongLee, I expect better from a Beejmi board poster. Just how many years younger is Miley in those pictures?

Courtney Love? C'mon Carlton St. For a small amount time she had some respect, maybe her time acting in the Larry Flynt/Man on the Moon era. But other than that, massive train wreck.

well no , Love is still around, likely living in a nicer house than you , worth about 100 mil and not dead or in jail as everyone 'knew' she would be 20 years ago

you dont know that, just like shinehead you are making an assumption that you know Miley , what motivates her, what she does in her private life and a ton of other stuff you have no idea about, its your opinion , not the law

no-one (especially someone who is successful in their field) wants to be told what to do or how to act in front of the class, and anyone who does it to someone else in the public forum is only looking for attention themselves - and deserves to be told to eff off

Yeah, we'd all love to trade lives with Courtney Love.  She's tried to kill herself at least once (on her 40th birthday), has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals and rehab, has certainly been in jail (several times, but since she isn't incarcerated on this particular day I guess it doesn't count), and had her daughter taken away from her and wasn't allowed to see her (not sure if she can now).  But she probably lives in a nice house.

Funny but the Larry Flynt movie was the exact thing that came to mind for me too.  I was impressed with her performance and, as a condition of getting the part, the studio made her take piss tests throughout filming and she passed them all.  It was probably the longest she's ever gone sober and she showed genuine acting talent.  I thought it might be a springboard to a real movie career, but we all know how she went off the deep end again after that.  A shame.

ya but what exactly is your point , that her life is no good cause of that stuff , that she should have listened to her parents, or you or anyone else when they tried to 'save' her , do you listen to everyone, life is yours to make what you want out of it , not for wanna be's to tell you what to do or judge you from their couches, people are mentally ill all over the place, geez look around here, I dont agree that Miley is mentally ill , no more than the rest of us , well some of us

No one said that Miley was mentally ill so I have no idea what your point is.  Sinead only said that she feared she was going down a dangerous path, which she clearly is.  And no, Miley probably shouldn't listen to her parents.  Anyone else's parents but her own.

Yep. She's batshit crazy legit and even though there's probably some truth in her letter, I wouldn't expect anyone to take it seriously coming from her.

Anyway, it kind of shows how naive Sinead really is that she can't understand that what Miley has done and is doing is a calculated move and pretty damned smart. Miley and her handlers know exactly what she's doing and she's going to continue raking in the $$$$ because of all this stuff. Good for her, grab all you can while you can I say, cause eventually you'll end up looking like Sinead does now and nobody is going to buy anything you put out there when you do..


I don't think you read her letter. She is acknowledging exactly what you're saying, and pointing out that they'll bleeding her dry then leave her to the courts, rehab facilities and mental health care like Britney, Lindsey, etc.

Not to mention there's really a lot of circumstantial evidence out there that child stars - especially the girls, deal with a lot of abuse on Disney shows. A big reason so many of them end up either out of the business right after their shows end and/or messed up on drugs is having to deal with a combination of stage parents and producers who got into the industry to bang underage girls without fear of reprisal.

I don't doubt all the recent fuss was engineered PR from Miley (or her team at least), but there's still all the stories of her drug use and her family is of no help. I think the biggest mistake Sinead has made in all this is expecting a 20 year old with more money and fame than Jesus to listen to some old lady.
