Sinéad O’Connor's original open letter:http://www.sineadoconnor.com/2013/10/open-letter-to-miley-cy.../ Wrecking Ball video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=My2FRPA3Gf8
Miley's puerile (and even spiteful) response has made me lean in support of Sinead, which I never thought I would find myself doing. She should have just ignored it.
Amanda Palmer's article also misses the point of what Sinead is saying. And this is a complete strawman:
The message is actually that you don't NEED to charge naked into battle. You can keep your clothes on (figuratively speaking - I have no issue with nudity per se), and win on your own terms. Or, more simply put:
"No need to lick the sledgehammer."
