Miley Cyrus she went back to talking about Sinead O’Connorwith whom 10 years ago he had a fight via social media during the new special aired on ABC, entitled Endless Summer: Vacation: Continued (Backyard Sessions).

La lite social life
Miley Cyrus said in 2013 that she was inspired by Nothing Compares 2 U for images of Wrecking Balltriggering the reaction of Sinéad O’Connor who had replied with a letter in which she advised her young colleague claiming that “it wasn’t cool” to appear naked and lick hammers, underlining that they were choices that risked overshadowing her talent and making only exploited by men who work in the music industry.
Miley Cyrus, in response to the letter, had shared some old tweets from Sinead O’Connor in which she spoke of her mental problems and had compared her to Amanda Bynes, in those weeks struggling with a difficult period. The Irish music star then replied: “Today you shared some of my tweets from two years ago, which were shared when I was unwell and seeking help, making it seem like they were recent… In doing so, you made fun of me and Amanda Bynes for suffering with mental health issues and for seeking help. I mean, really, who advises you?“.
Sinéad O’Connor, the director of Nothing Compares: “I’m glad you saw the reaction to the documentary”
A decade later, Miley then explained: “I had no idea what a fragile state of mind he was in, and besides, I was only 20 years old. I didn’t really understand mental health issues and all I saw was another woman telling me that this idea was not my idea. I had been judged for my choices for so long that I was exhausted and was in a situation where I was finally making my own choices and decisions. Seeing all of this taken away from me deeply shocked me. God really bless Sinéad O’Connor, I’m serious“.
Miley then sang the song Wonder Woman dedicating it to the memory of her colleague, who died at the age of 56 in July.
