Sinead O'Connor says Miley Cyrus feud is 'over' and accuses Simon Cowell of 'murdering' music
Sinead O'Connor insisted her squabble with Miley Cyrus is now "over" during an appearance on Irish TV last night (October 4).

The two singers have exchanged insults in recent days after Cyrus responded to O'Connor's open letter warning her not to let the music industry make a "prostitute" out of her. Cyrus has since been criticised by mental health expert for mocking O'Connor's battles with psychological illnesses over the years.

On Blogs - 'Miley Cyrus mocking mental health is not acceptable'

Talking to host Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show yesterday (October 4), O'Connor said: "As far as I'm concerned it's over, it's not something I really want to talk about." She also said of her Cyrus squabble: "It's about music being murdered, it's not actually about Miley."

Discussing the current state of the music industry, O'Connor continued: "I feel sorry for the murder of music and rock 'n' roll, which has happened because of the industry. Because of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh. They've murdered music. I stand to say it on behalf of every musician in the world and they'll agree with me. The industry has taken over so much, the money-making side of it, that the sexualising of extremely young people making records, and all the worship with money and bling and diamonds, all the Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh - it all amounts to the murder of music and that's what concerns me."

Meanwhile, at around the same time O'Connor was appearing on The Late Late Show, Cyrus posted a tweet that appeared to be aimed at the Irish singer by referencing the lyrics of her classic Prince cover 'Nothing Compares 2 U'.
