Sinead O'Connor Slams Rolling Stone's Kim Kardashian Cover

By    |   Thursday, 16 Jul 2015 07:31 AM

Singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor is none too pleased with Rolling Stone for putting reality TV and sex tape star Kim Kardashian on its cover this month, saying that the magazine has "murdered" music.

"What is this c*** ('I don't smile much because it causes wrinkles') doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it?" the Grammy-winning musician wrote Tuesday on Facebook.

 


"Simon Cowell ['American Idol' judge] and Louis Walsh [of The X Factor] can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be f***ing horrified. #BoycottRollingStone," she added.

O'Connor is no stranger to controversy, having years ago ripped apart a photograph of Pope John Paul II during her "Saturday Night Live" performance.

Rolling Stone is also no stranger to looking and reporting beyond the music business. It has at times mis-stepped in doing so, however, stirring up controversy by putting Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover, and getting slapped with a lawsuit after a high-profile story on campus rape was exposed to be false.

Last time O'Connor lashed out at a sex symbol, she trained her sights on Miley Cyrus. After Cyrus released her risqué "Wrecking Ball" music video, O'Connor advised the young pop star to stop "prostituting" herself, and focus on music.

Cyrus — whose music video was partial inspired by O'Connor — responded by making fun of the singer's history of emotional and mental health troubles on Twitter, specifically comparing her to the also-troubled Amanda Bynes. This seemed to upset O'Connor greatly.

As of Thursday morning, Kardashian had not responded to O'Conner's comments, nor had Rolling Stone.

One Facebook commenter responded to O'Conner, saying, "Bob Dylan released an album which could only be bought at Starbucks. I don't think Bob Dylan would be as horrified as you think. Rolling Stone is about selling magazines."

"Key words here are 'released an album,'" O'Conner commented back.
