It looks like Sinead O’Connor has taken to her blog to criticize Miley Cyrus once again, although she saves her harshest words for the music industry as a whole.

In a new post on her website titled: “Urgent! Does anyone know the whereabouts of this girl’s parents?” the Irish singer posted a provocative picture of Miley onstage with a wad of cash in her mouth.

She goes on to write about how she would never allow her daughter to be photographed the way Miley has, saying: “In short, no human being on earth would be photographing, filming or watching my child-like looking daughter dressed as a stripper with a load of cash stuck in her mouth.”

She says Miley’s current shtick is “making a mockery of feminism,” and “the exact opposite [of female empowerment].” Citing the pop star’s young audience as a reason to stop sexualizing “artists who look like minors,” she writes: “Their under-age audiences have been given no choice as to whether or not they want to be sexualised before their natural time.”

Sinead then goes on to blame the music industry for sexualizing minors, and while she doesn’t outright blame Miley for being an active participant, she does say: “I am not suggesting Miley is consciously engaging in the sexualisation of minors. Of course not. But I am stating she unconsciously is.”

This latest blog post should come as no surprise to Miley, as she and Sinead O’Connor have been embroiled in a social media feud spanning the past year or so, though we were under the impression that it was finished. Looks like we were wrong.
