Amanda Palmer's open letter to Sinead O'Conner re: Miley Cyrus

Amanda Palmer's open letter to Sinead O'Conner re: Miley Cyrus | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it

Dear Sinéad,
 

I love you. I grew up worshipping your music and your bold attitude and, especially, your refusal to sign up to the bullshit beauty standard. You were one of the few women rockstars that was clearly doing things her own way, and you inspired me to no end. I want to thank you for doing that. I listened to your stunning voice and your true, deep lyrics endlessly on my walkman, flipping the tape again, and again, then again, then again…and I know those ingredients still live and breathe inside me every time I write a song of my own. You shaped me...

On Miley's behalf, this article sheds more of a positive light on what Miley is doing. Amanda Palmer is somewhat supportive of Miley. I do not agree with Amanda's perspective on the issue because i feel like Miley is just going downhill.

A response from Amanda Palmer to Sinead O'Connor's open letter to Miley Cyrus.


It's been a debated topic on my Facebook page. What's feminism? All I hope for is that women can find the courage to stick to their instincts and their guns. If you want to take your clothes off...that's just fine, but know that there is always optimal times for all decisions and actions. 


My point was that Miley Cyrus may not have exercised her ability to make a sound decision when hiring Terry Richardson as the director of this particular video. I think Terry Richardson has some sort of genius -- or we can call it "EQ" -- in that his ability to get beautiful women to take off their clothes on camera is uncanny. I do like his "work" with Kate Upton's Cat Daddy video, which you can watch here -- I have many times over. 


This is all about decision making -- and having the confidence to make such decisions in spite of the industry or what others tell you. Sometimes you choose to listen to the industry, and sometimes you should go with your gut and be determined to stick to your choice. Perhaps Miley made the right decision? She is getting a ton of press. My second post about her already!

Is Bolder Better? How An Artist’s Persona Affects Sales, Airplay and Streaming

Is Bolder Better? How An Artist’s Persona Affects Sales, Airplay and Streaming | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it

"For most music artists, “reinvention” is a way to reach new fans, create buzz, and experiment with new sounds. No matter how they create it, an artist’s persona is everything—and they convey it in everything they do."

eric Medina's insight:

This article explains some of the benefits of an artist's crazy actions. Although most people look at Miley as some type of slut trying to prove herself as a grown woman, the way she acts has had a positive impact on her income from music.

Taking on a new persona is hard to pull off but, can be worth it. The article used Miley Cyrus as a great example and also the aurthor realizes that she is not the only artist turning a new leaf. Britteny Spears and Madonna were moving to a different  light for their sells.It is the well organized and I understood his message since the beginning of the paragraph. I enjoyed the many other examples of the many artists.

travis eskridge's curator insight, October 13, 2013 8:23 PM

the article explains how music reinvention  is a good way to reach fans.

Pros: this move could definitly work and create a buzz for your fan base.

Cons: depending on your fanbase this could fail miserabley and maybe end your career.

Kyron McGruder's curator insight, November 10, 2013 2:53 AM

this article outlines the importance of "reinvention" of yourself to the world; After you are doing well in the industry. 

pros of this is that you have a chance to reach out to new audiences gaining more exposure and ultimately more more sales.

cons of this are that your fans may not like the new you, and turn their backs on you and favor another artist

So miley Cyrus does it again. When will she stop? Does she really think she’s sexy?

eric Medina's insight:

Just a few pictures and funny animations to justify the fact that Miley changed in a horrid way. Definitely no longer Hannah Montana.

Billy Ray discusses his daughter's contraversial performance. Although he was highly embarrased, he is still her father and supports her music career. However, he still does not agree with what she has been doing.

Annie Lennox weighs in on Miley Cyrus debate: 'Highly styled pornography'

Annie Lennox weighs in on Miley Cyrus debate: 'Highly styled pornography' | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it
Former Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox has spoken out about explicit music videos following the topic surfacing in the wake of the Sinead O'Connor and Miley Cyrus debate.

Via Webgrrl
eric Medina's insight:

This article explains how Miley once again acted out of line, in my opinion. She read O-Connor's open letter, and reacted by mocking her and comparing her to Amanda Bynes. Sinead wrote to her out of kindness, but I guess Miley did not want anyone reaching out to her trying to tell her how to live her life.

Webgrrl's curator insight, October 8, 2013 3:51 AM

"It's depressing to see how these performers are so eager to push this new level of low. Their assumption seems to be that misogyny utilised and displayed through oneself is totally fine, as long as you are the one creating it. As if it's all justified by how many millions of dollars and U tube (sic) hits you get from behaving like pimp and prostitute at the same time. It's a glorified and monetized form of self harm." ~Annie Lennox, ex-Eurythmics singer

More action on Miley's disruptive and disrespectful behavior. Now she is harrassing her father on twitter trying to embarass him just because he would not answer her texts. She is become too wild and just craves attention.

Sinead O’Connor’s Remarkable Open Letter To Miley Cyrus

Sinead O’Connor’s Remarkable Open Letter To Miley Cyrus | Miley Cyrus | Scoop.it

Via stan stewart
eric Medina's insight:

DESCRIPTION OF TOPIC: The downfall of Miley Cyrus. I believe Miley's career will soon be going downhill. She has recently became a hot topic with her slutty performances and naked music video. The only positiveness that comes out of this is the amount of money she has been making. But in the long run, she is headed to a dead end.

In this article, MIley Cyrus recently quoted Sinead OConnor as one of her inspirations. Because of this, Sinead wrote Miley a sincere letter to be careful, and to look out for herself. In the letter she speaks of how cruel the music industry can be and gave her some wise advice to change her act.
