After engaging in an online feud with '90s singing star Sinead O'Connor, Miley Cyrus told NBC's Today show on Monday that it "doesn't really matter" how Sinead feels about her.
Just to recap: after Miley said in an interview that Sinead's video for her hit "Nothing Compares 2 U" inspired her video for "Wrecking Ball," Sinead wrote an open letter to Miley, advising her not to let the music business turn her into a "prostitute." Miley responded on Twitter by insinuating that Sinead was mentally unbalanced, which cause Sinead to fire off another open letter threatening to sue and demanding an apology. When Miley wrote on Twitter that Sinead should let her know when she wanted to get together and talk, Sinead wrote yet another letter, repeating her threats and demands.
"I think she's an incredible artist, I think she's an awesome songwriter, and I was really inspired by her for my 'Wrecking Ball' video, which was what started the whole thing," Miley said Monday on the Today show. "I don't know how someone can start a fight with somebody who said, ‘Hey, I really respect you. And I really love what you what you did.' ‘You know what? You suck! I don't like you!' That was kind of crazy. But as I said, I'm a big fan of hers, so it doesn't really matter."
Miley added, "It's all good. You can write as many open letters as you want. That's really what blogging is. I get open letters every day. It's nothing too new for me."
In addition, Miley was asked by Matt Lauer if this "sexual" side of her that she's been showing lately is just a phase that will go away. The 20-year-old replied, "Well, I heard when you turn 40 that's when things start to go a little less sexual...Probably around that time, I heard that's when people don't have sex anymore....I guess maybe around then." When Lauer revealed that he was 55, Miley joked, "Oh, then you're really not sexual."
