Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh have murdered music: Sinead O'Connor

Los Angeles, Oct 5 : Irish singer Sinead O'Connor has held music mogul Simon Cowell and music reality show judge Louis Walsh responsible for "murdering music".


O'Connor appeared on "The Late Show" Friday to address an ongoing feud with young singer Miley Cyrus, but instead she targeted Cowell and his flagship show "The X Factor". She blamed him and many others for the death of rock 'n' roll music, reports contactmusic.com.

"I don't feel sorry for me or for anybody else in the matter, that's not what it's about. The broader issue, I feel sorry for the murder of music. I feel sorry for the murder of rock 'n' roll which has happened because of the industry. Because of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and the lot of them (talent show judges) have murdered music," O'Connor said on the Irish chat show:

"They're murderers of music! I stand and say it on behalf of every musician in the world and they will all agree with it. I don't give a s**t if I hurt them.

"All the sexualisation of young people, all the worship of bling and money and diamonds and 'Pop Idol' stuff, Simon Cowell - it all amounts to the murder of music," she added.

Earlier this week, O'Connor had penned an open letter to Cyrus warning her of the dangers of the music industry and asking her to stop projecting an overtly sexual image.

Cyrus, 20, responded to the letter via Twitter. She mocked bipolar disease sufferer O'Connor for her mental health issues.
