Sinead O’Connor On U2’s iTunes Surprise: ‘There Was Something Almost Terrorist About It’

You can count Sinead O’Connor among the many that have grumbled publicly about U2’s surprise iTunes album release.

“What they did with iTunes was a badly judged move,”; the singer told the Daily Mail. “There was something almost terrorist about it. I’m really not a U2 fan but it wasn’t at all kosher invading people’s lives like that. It was bad management.”;

The “Nothing Compares 2 U”; artist also took aim at how she feels the music industry sells sex to kids.

“It’s an issue of child protection, says O’Connor on how she views Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball”; video. “Her audience needs to be protected. She is selling sex and sexual imagery to very young kids and it’s wrong, it’s reckless and it’s dangerous.”;

O’Connor says that artists should be more responsible in the way they engage their audience.

“Lady Gaga, who knows that half her audience are minors, was inviting them to simulate masturbation. What kind of people do that?”; asks the singer.
