Sinead O'Connor Thinks Simon Cowell "Murdered Music!"

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsMiley CyrusSimon Cowell


Looks like Sinead O'Connor might be ripping up Simon Cowell's picture in the nearest of futures!

We reported earlier how Sinead had taken a break Miley-bashing, but now she's turned her Irish ire to Simon.

In a recent interview, Sinead accused Simon among others, for murdering music with a lead pipe in the Conservatory!:

"It all amounts to the murder of music…Music is being murdered. Rock 'n' roll is being murdered…I feel sorry for the murder of rock 'n', which has happened because of the industry, because of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, and the likes of them have murdered music."

How could anyone have a problem with the mastermind behind One Direction?!

If he did somehow murder the abstract art of music, which is prett-ay impossible as far as we know, we'd issue him a full pardon for creating the best boy band ever!

But SRSLY! Did music die and nobody told us? Because we are very unaware of its untimely homicide, if so.

Ugh! Just when we thought one celebrity feud was settled, Sinead goes off and starts another! Will we ever have peace?

So far, Sinead has accused Miley of being musically pimped out, and Simon of musical murder! What's next, accusing Britney Spears of musical grand theft auto?

    Sinead O'connor needs to take a step back before she begins accusing anyone of anything after all she has done in her career span. However, in saying that, Louis walsh and Simon Cowell have definitely ruined what music means to people. But so has everyone else from this generation.. We now live in a world where we are able to create a ”pop-star” entirely from a computer and a mix-board.. it's a definite shame.

    Well, controlled a large chunk of it for profit, anyway. That's what entrepreneurs do. You don't have to buy it, but the lack of alternatives is the concerning part. Those entrepreneurs need to come out of the woodwork and create their market.

    Dude Perez are you serious? Out of ALLLL the people in the media game, would think you would side with her on this one. Well maybe not Sinead cause she is fruit loop but I thought you'd argree that music like One Direction and other $hitty bands or artists that were created thru "competitions" is CRAP. one direction is NOT MUSIC. alot of crap on the radio isn't. Rock & Roll IS DEAD.

    Ironic that someone holding a cigarette, who relies on her voice to make money, could accuse someone of murdering music.

    he does kind of represent all this cookie-cutter, I tune of the minute. 99 cent music store mentality. twenty years from now its gonna be hard to find any CLASSIC rock. Classic anything.

    I do not agree with sineads view of miley. Its not unusual for older women to be intimidated by young women who act sexy and provocative (i've seen risque pictures of madonna but I dont hear many women calling her "trashy" because she's old. She's been shocking people since the stone age. But if madonna was 20, then women would have a problem with her because.. how dare a young babe act sexy and dress hot). And i hope you older men dont turn into older women "waaaa. the 20 year old pop guys are acting sexy and flexing their buff bodies shirtless to arouse our daughters. waaaaa" (die before you get that lame)….And I do not agree with her view on Simon. One group of men cant murder music. But I agree that rock is dead And it was killed by white females' newfound preference for "black urban styles" of music sung by shirtless 20 year old white males with droopy pants. Us white males still rock. We arent going to bieber concerts (willingly).

    Re: ms. trudy – Sinead, or 'that crazy (smart)' reflects the thoughts of most every pro musician from the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's.

    Re: Amy – Some vocalists actually smoke to add grit to their sound.

    Re: George – I don't understand why you think Sinead should step back when in the rest of your paragraph you basically regurgitated what she said. It's not like Sinead's being a hypocrite.

    Read this in the paper today, and was shocked that I agree with her…. again.

    She's right. It wasn't solely Simon Cowell, many factors play into it, but American Idol was the start of the end for quality pop. Now, instead of kids who played their asses off on drums, guitar, keyboard, in their room since their parents bought them that instrument, then forming a BAND, and giving it everything as a band, paying dues, they all think because they sing in their car, they are god damn professionals who are born to play music. Or actually, born to sing because they can't play shit, or write anything. Singing is real big thanks to Simon. Dancing doesn't hurt either. Actually it does, but it helps gets somebody who wants "in", "in". Weak, gay, no balls music, sang by little girls, and… well… gay guys…. which is the only demographic it appeals to. Maybe stay at home moms who like to vaccume to it too…. I am more talented than most of todays top artists. It's true. I'm not normally one of those guys who talks like that but I am. If I;m inspired, which I'm not, I am far better than the top of today. I was at 16, I am at 39.

    Sinead is almost spot on. Mainstream covered music has certainly taken a massive dive into the death zone and Simon Cowell has certainly been a big part of this mainstream death dive but I wouldn't say he did this all on his own. Mostly, because I don't believe he is worthy of that much credit. He has certainly cheapened what was already the pretty tacky side of music. Thankfully the music world does not revolve around Mr. Cowell alone. There is still a huge music scene that is thriving and full of creative talent. I am so grateful we have the internet to find it! Who watches television where Mr. Cowell lurks about anyhow? That is so two generations ago.

    Re: DermDogFromSplermVille – is that the answer people have to everything? they are jealous. I'm not jealous of miley cyrus, i find her disgusting. also feel duped,

  14. victoria says – reply to this


    Yes, she's right. People have been brainwashed into liking this music, because it's what's readily available, not only by Simon Cowell, but by people like Perez Hilton.

    All my friends like rock/metal; whenever there's a rock festival it sells out. The problem is that most children aren't exposed to that kind of music. I used to like pop crap when I was a kid, until I discovered Korn, Tool, then i started to like more in this genre.

    Real music is still out there, just not pushed by the mainstream, but you have to have a mind of your own to find it.

    I don't think pop is bad music. Just because I dont like it doesnt mean its bad music (who am i? A cynical asshole?). I think there is tons of talent to be found in pop and great songs too. I think where pop lost alot of old school pop fans is when it became "cross over" (whites singing black and dancing black). I dont think simon started the "crossover era". That shift was in the mid 90s when n'sync, backstreet boys and eminem came along. Even metal bands started rapping for a while (and I wont even bring up kidrock). It was crossover mayhem. That was when white females stopped rocking. They crossed over and never came back. Then grunge rock died and… rock was done. I saw the shift with my eyes. I was a kid of the 90s.

    Re: DermdogFromSplermville – Madonna pretty much killed the female rock star. Before her, there was Joan Jett, Heart, Lita Ford, Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynde, etc. Now we got people like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus.

  17. fiera says – reply to this


    Sinead, Annie Lennox, Whitney Houston, came from an era where people would get a record deal if they could really sing, were original, and play musical instruments. In other words-REAL FUCKING TALENT!!!! They didn't rely on taking their clothes off to make them famous. When Madonna came along, she wasn't known for her singing talent, but for her provocative style and she is a great performer. She paved the way for people today like Britney Spears.
    I have to agree with Sinead with the state of the music today, it's awful.

    Sinead O' connor is getting on my last freaking nerves, she doesn't get tired on bashing on people and than she tells miley that she needs to apologize for defending her self. I mean I know what Miley did was wrong but come on she keeps on talking shit about celebs. Not only that, how the fuck did Simon murder music, it's what people like this days, that's what he basically go on for. Simon is doing pretty well with the success of One Direction, and I don't see other people complain about it. So Sinead fuck off and get a life. This shit is literally getting on my nerves and trust me not only mines. Also on music is dead I kind of agree, Old hip hop was the real deal, the old rock N' roll and etc, but music as of today it's what people like so it's not your business on to call someone a music murder or maybe your just a b**** calling for a attention, who's next?

    Just about the only thing I agree on with Sinead O. He certainly did with the help of the dem-libtard Askenazis in Hollywood.
