Miley said she got the inspiration to her wrecking ball video from Irish singer, Sinead O'connor .From Sinead's then video Nothing Compares to you. The now 46 year old had this to say to Miley.
And I would advice this piece from Sinead to both Miley and Rihanna (and whoever is out the sending the wrong message). Since they both are in the business of who twerked the most or who has the most raunchy video out!
In her words;
"Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited,"
"Please, in future, say no when you are asked to prostitute yourself."
O'Connor said she was prompted to write, "in the spirit of motherliness" after "dodging phone calls from various newspapers" who wanted the singer-songwriter to comment upon similarities between the two videos.
The video for Nothing Compares 2 U is principally a close-up of O'Connor, who sheds a single tear as she performs the Prince-penned break-up ballad.
Cyrus cries in the promo clip for Wrecking Ball, which shares similar lyrical themes to O'Connor's song. But the video also finds her licking a sledgehammer and swinging naked on a metal demolition ball.
"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," wrote O'Connor.
"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 it's the music business or yourself doing the pimping.
"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.
"You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal. The world of showbiz doesn't see things that way," continued the Irish singer.
"They're there for the money, we're there for the music. It has always been that way and it will always be that way. The sooner a young lady gets to know that, the sooner she can REALLY [be] in control."
Hence my quote for the day;
"You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal"
