Sinead O’Connor Slams Rolling Stone for Kim Kardashian Cover: ‘Music Has Officially Died’
Sinead O’Connor probably isn’t renewing her Rolling Stone subscription anytime soon.
The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer took major exception to the music magazine putting reality star Kim Kardashian on its cover (pictured above) for the mid-late July issue.
Calling Kanye West’s wife a “c-nt,” O’Connor decided that “music has officially died” and that Rolling Stone was the one who murdered it. But don’t worry, Simon Cowell, she isn’t taking anything away from your contributions to the effort.

“Bob Dylan must be f–king horrified,” she concluded on the newsstand decision, later calling for a boycott of the popular periodical via a hashtag.
O’Connor is no stranger to strong opinions and controversy. In 1992, she was famously banned from “Saturday Night Live” for ripping up a photograph of Pope John Paul II in front of the camera live on NBC.

What is this c–t (“I don’t smile much because it causes wrinkles”) doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be fucking horrified.
