A slow Friday afternoon …
Miley Cyrus responds to a Rolling Stone magazine interview that her “Wrecking Ball” video is inspired by Sinead’s “Nothing Compares 2U” video. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/miley-cyrus-on-why-she-loves-weed-went-wild-at-the-vmas-and-much-more-20130927
Reporters hound Sinead for some comment. Sinead instead posts an open letter on her blog. http://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/oct/03/sinead-o-connor-open-letter-miley-cyrus
Amanda Palmer jumps in with her own open letter. http://amandapalmer.net/blog/20131003/
Miley responds by making fun of Sinead’s mental health issues. https://twitter.com/MileyCyrus/status/385794622641160193.
Sinead retorts https://www.facebook.com/sineadoconnor/posts/600729603299365 and threatens to bring in her lawyers.
This is how the media instigates a story to keep our attention on them!
Meanwhile, in other news, Scarlett Johansson falls down (http://mashable.com/2013/10/03/scarlett-johansson-falling-down/).
