3. Miley Cyrus and Sinéad O’Connor

After Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video premiered, which took inspiration from Sinéad's “Nothing Compares 2 U,” Sinéad wrote an open letter thanking Miley for paying homage, but also warning her about being exploited by the music industry. Miley didn’t take the advice well, and poked fun at Sinéad's mental health issues and past meltdowns. This sparked an avalanche of letters from Sinéad that publicly lambasted Miley for her careless words.
