Sinead gives word of warning to Miley
Sinead O'Connor has warned Miley Cyrus in an open letter address that she is getting "pimped" by the industry.
O'Conner wrote the letter in response to Cyrus' claims the video for her Wrecking Ball was inspired by Nothing Compares 2 U.
"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," O'Connor wrote.
"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."
