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.

Let's face it...Sinead is an articulate, intelligent & talented woman
who's only vice was to offer some sound, experienced advice to Miley Cyrus.
unfortunately Miley who, is obviously as dumb as a brick ...couldn't handle a few truths
how could that be remotely possible?
she has been a product of the music factory since she was a child, already transformed & manipulated..with her blinkers on..surrounded by people blowing up her inflated & vacuous ego...and all for their own fortunes.
you cant convince me that Snoop dog, Kanye etc enjoy hanging out with her.
she is just a puppet of an industry that pumps out tacky music ...even tackier videos..with the tackiest, talentless birdbrains they can find....
that is of course...till they burn out...which they inevitably do...
& then comes the next set of fame whores to replace them

A 1 hit wonder who is now mad because no one cares about her. We see those old musicians spewing those laughable opinions all the time. Sorry child, if you were a good musician people would still care about you. "You are killing music!!!". No, kid, the industry is the same as always. If anything those talent shows give visibility to aspiring artists.

Yes Sinead I also can't stand that ugly Simon and I have to agree with what you say about Miley. She's rich but her head is f--ked up.

Sinead O'Connor is "RIGHT ON THE MONEY"!!! The entertainment business, in general, gave up cultivating talented artists a "VERY LONG TIME AGO"!!! It's much easier to "SEX THEM UP" and "SEE WHAT STICKS"!!! It's more about producing a "MARKETABLE COMMODITY" rather than a "MEMORABLE BODY OF WORK"!!! It's way too tempting to take "SHORT CUTS" than to do the "HARD WORK" that nurturing "REAL TALENT" requires. As Billy Joel mentioned some time ago, many younger recording artists can't "READ" music and they're not expected to develop such abilities. By not becoming more "TECHNICALLY PROFICIENT" keeps them "VULNERABLE AND EXPLOITABLE"!!!

I liked a few things Sinead said, but she's off her rocker 1/2 the time. She's lumping Simon's productions with Miley's Sluttyness. Sorry, but while I realize some stars are at least somewhat exploited, Miley being way up in the stratosphere of whores, wasn't caused by the industry. It's due to Miley and her personal issues. You have to remember, it's that same industry that wanted her to be Hanna Mantanna as well. I think people love to exaggerate, and it would be better if they were more balanced and grounded. Seems now that Sinead has gotten a touch of publicity with Miley (I liked her letters), now she wants more and more.. not a good sign.

Stuck with her through the whole Pope thing, because it had substance. Her latest rants, are just that. RANTS. While she has good points, it's too much already. Stop selling yourself Sinead. It's hard to agree w/ someone who just wants to be in the limelight.
