It all started with Miley saying Sinead O'Connor's iconic music video "Nothing Compares 2 U" was part of the inspiration for "Wrecking Ball" in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. Yesterday Sinead responded with an open letter to Miley on her website after being contacted for comment by numerous media outlets.

O'Connor's lengthy and pointed letter, which claimed to come from a place of "motherliness and love," advised Cyrus to reign in her sexual antics to avoid being "pimped" by the music industry. O'Connor's words were strong and she made sure to let Cyrus know her recent behavior was sending "the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent."

Miley fired back by mocking Sinead's mental breakdown, which happened publicly on twitter two years ago, and taking shots at O'Connor's career. After posting screenshots of tweets O'Connor made during her mental break, Cyrus was again addressed by O'Connor on Facebook, where she claimed Miley was mocking her mental health and being a bully.

Miley then for tweeted: "Sinead. I don't have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week." Ouch! O'Connor replied that her lawyers would be in contact with Cyrus' over the reposting of her tweets. Sinead closed by saying: "Soon it will be you who will be the media 'crazy'...and you will not enjoy it...and you will appreciate people (like myself) standing up for you. Which I will be happy to do...if you earn my respect today by apologising publicly." While O'Connor's open letter was certainly unsolicited advice, Miley's response was insensitive. Who do you think owes an apology? Let us know in the comments!

Modern Family star Winter emancipated herself from her emotionally abusive "stage mother," Chrisoula Workman, in 2015, and was placed in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Gray, in the meantime. "This is what she wanted me to do, and she pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what I wanted and what I needed," she told People about her mother. "And that was definitely hard, but I don't think that was the only issue." She also addressed the difficulty of growing up under the paparazzi's gaze: "It's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that tough situation and have an open court case and have everyone look at it, because it's already hard enough for abuse victims, but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion," she explained.
