We can't even keep up with it anymore.



This is like pulling teeth, but we have to update y'all on the very latest in the Sinead O'Connor-Miley Cyrus feud taking over the music world. Yeah, we hate it, too, but let's just rip the Band-Aid off and say Sinead has once again written an open letter after Miley kind of dismissed her first one.

Miley told Matt Lauer on the Today show that she doesn't understand why Sinead is having a beef with her and used Twitter to compare O'Connor to Amanda Bynes on Twitter, referencing the Irish singer's tweets contemplating suicide a couple years back. Gee, what would Sinead have to say about that?

"I would very much like you please to apologise to myself and Amanda Bynes for having perpetuated abuse of both of us on the grounds that Amanda has had ‘mental health issues’ and that I experienced suicidal compulsion and was open about seeking help in order to save my life," O'Connor posted, noting the feelings were a side effect to using Tegretol, an anti-seizure medication often used to treat bipolar disorder. "This should also involve an apology to all sufferers of mental health difficulties and all those who have had experience of suicidal feelings or who have been affected by suicide."

The letter goes on and on, but begins to wrap up by saying O'Connor's repeated admonishments aren't really a war of words.

"I have no interest in the ‘feud’ which media want. There is no ‘feud’ as far as I am concerned," she wrote. "What there is however.. Is a lot of very serious harm caused to myself and my children and probably to Amanda, and DEFINATELY to silent sufferers of your own age who may look up to you."

Indeed, two parties constantly rebutting comments made on TV, the Internet and print in a condescending and impatient way certainly doesn't constitute a feud of any kind. In America, we just call that politics.
