Artists who use their appearance to promote their work are always going to come under fire for being anti-feminist.
Miley Curys takes that to the next level with her naked antics.
When Sinéad O'Connor penned her open letter to Miley
warning her about being prostituted by her record label, it should have sparked an interesting debate about how the music industry treats women. Instead it descended into an unnecessary bitchy she-said she-said feud and the original point got overlooked, especially by the two singers.
Before it all got silly, O'Connor was warning against the exploitation of women in the public eye.
"Men have the privilege of seeing their sex appeal come from things besides their bodies," explains Andrea Press, sociology professor at the University of Virginia. "Though Cryus is unique by virtue of age and child stardom, she is merely the latest participant in "business as usual."
The amount of celebrity faces who stepped in on the debate raged on with singer Amanda Palmer penning her own open letter advocating there be several different shades of feminism in music, "there needs to be room on the vast playing field for Adele to wear a conservative suit, room for Lady Gaga to do naked performance art in the woods…and room for Miley to rip a page out of stripper culture and run around like a maniac for however long she wants to."
Actress Rashida Jones on the other hand just called for stars like Miley to 'stop acting like whores.'
