Music has been unceremoniously murdered according to Sinead O’Connor.
The provocative singer, who sometimes gets more headlines for her outspoken musings than her music, declared disgust after Kim Kardashian’s Rolling Stone cover.
The [other] Take me to Church singer took to Facebook stating: “What is this c*** doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it?”
The 48-year-old Dubliner continued: “Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be f****** horrified. #BoycottRollingStone #AGenerationIsBeingGroomedAndSilenced.” The status garnered huge support and was shared 16,336 times and received 62, 133 likes.
Earlier today O’Connor reiterated her revulsion by posting Bob Dylan’s Gotta Serve Somebody, saying it was posted “For Rolling Stone and Kim, and for Simon and Louis too.” No doubt, Kim will have something to say about this, via Twitter!
In 2003, Sinead hit the headlines after writing an open letter to American pop-tart, Miley Cyrus, saying the music industry was taking advantage of her: “The music business doesn’t give a s*** about you, or any of us,” she wrote. “They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it’s what you wanted…Don’t be under any illusions…All of them want you because they’re making money off your youth and beauty.
