Ignoring the fact that much-complained-about serial groper and sex pest Terry Richardson is still getting work, Sinead O'Connor saw something that she didn't like and she made it a surety that everyone would know about the fact that she didn't like it. Airing one's grievances is a common thing: "I don't like this painting, it's too abstract" – "No, I don't like the taste of coffee" – "This weather is horrendous"; these are normal grievances. However, what these everyday grievances don't do is sensationalise a sense of repugnance to such a degree that even the area of existence to which the object of dislike belongs becomes figuratively salted land, becomes "dead", i.e. "I hate the taste of coffee, there are no good hot drinks anymore", "This weather is horrendous, what is the world coming to?", "I don't like this painting, art must be dead."

So when Kim Kardashian appears on the cover of Rolling Stone, Sinead O'Connor – probably alongside many other haters – took to Facebook to post this message:

What is this cunt ("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.

1. I'm no poptimist (far from it) but Kim Kardashian is a human who has built a celebrity lifestyle by simply being a celebrity, more than any other person before her. Now, she is not the best person in the world, nor is she the worst person in the world; she is a person. So is Sinead. Kim is also journalistically "relevant", since she's married to Kanye West, and when have the lovers and partners of musicians and artists ever been omitted from or ignored by the press entirely?

2. Music has not officially died. This statement of Sinead's sounds as ridiculous as she thinks the Rolling Stone cover looks.

3. Rolling Stone is not a bible, it is not the be-all-and-end-all of music. It is a publication like every other publication, and like every other publication it has moved with the times, its editors and staff actually grow up, move on, and are replaced by younger, more generationally relevant editors and staff.

4. Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh? Come on, Sinead, 5 years ago just called. Keep up.

5. What's Bob Dylan got to do with anything, other than the name reference? Did he invent music? Did he also kill music? (Actually a lot of people at the time he "went electric" hated this change, so I guess we have stick-in-the-muds like Sinead in every generation, don't we).

6. Boycott Rolling Stone? Here, Sinead appears to be rallying everybody over to her side of thinking – she even used a hashtag. But any rational person would know that the only things that should be boycotted are the things that really matter in life, not just your fav music mag 'cos it put someone you don't like on the cover.

But then again Sinead O'Connor is known for the airing of her opinions; in 2013 she took it upon herself to give Miley Cyrus some friendly advice in a very, very lengthy open letter that said a lot of things about not being a prostitute.
