Simon Cowell
is a cold-blooded killer ... of music, at least according to Sinead O'Connor.

O'Connor appeared on The Late Late Show in Ireland, and went off on the "X Factor" judge, as well as Louis Walsh -- an entertainment manager who's a judge on the British version of "X Factor."

O'Connor goes on to explain how the industry is now all about money-worship and over-sexualizing young people.

And speaking of over-sexualizing ... she thinks Miley Cyrus has been grossly exploited ... in no small part because she's young and just doesn't get it.

I mentioned Miley and Justin Bieber having pimps, but I forgot to mention Britney Spears, Rhianna, Beyoncé. The camera and their clothing is always highlighting their crotchs (remember Superbowl?) And not only are the videos pimped, but the music sound quality is pimped. Ipods and computers make music sound flat and lifelsss, with too much phoniness, not enough realism. Realism is what makes music truly memorable and long lasting.great.

OMG, is the only way this woman can get publicity? Being controversial? I have heard that Misery loves company and she she should be the spokesperson for that statement. I have only heard negativity coming from her and that one song Nothing compares.....Give it up.

kind of agree with her comment about music becoming more and more having to be sexualized to sell the records. including the new artists almost being looked at as maybe just money for the companies. guess this means she will never be on x-factor ever.

She sounds pretty smart to me. I can't necessarily says it's all Simon's fault, although he doesn't help the situation. I think it's just the sad state of society these days.

I totally agree with her on that. Worship of money and exploitation. Auto-Tune. Real music is a dying art.

TYPE "COREY HART" IN YOUTUBE. YOU WILL SEE THAT THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IN HOLLYWOOD IS FULL OF HARDCORE PEDOPHILES. COREY HART AND OTHER VICTIMS CAN'T EVEN NAME NAMES, BECAUSE THE NETWORK IS THAT BIG AND POWERFUL. It's not like there are a few pedophiles in Hollywood; it's more like there are a few people in Hollywood that aren't pedophiles.

For those who are Musicians - watch Sinead's Nothing Compares 2U and The Foggy Dew with the Chieftans on YouTube. For those who are not - watch and you'll get a glimpse of how a wise warrior woman begins her journey - then shares her scars hoping to give a youngin' a little wisdom.

Sinead is spot on - Mileynot only looks and sound ridiculous (not sexy but pathetic, tacky and sad) but yes, SHE WILL end up in a psych ward or rehab unit. That is for sure 100%. And where is Billy Ray? Is he pimping Miley out or sleeping with her or both?

NO, Simon Cowell and others like him have not murdered music.
They are in the business of Pop / Fashion which has always been highly visual and sexual.
Music is alive and well and cheaper than ever to hear. Click on youtube and there is an endless supply of new and classic music.
