Tonight, Cyrus is hosting Saturday Night Live, as well as performing as musical guest, and now the show will likely tackle her Twitter tussle with Sinead O'Connor. O'Connor wrote two public letters, first asking the 20-year-old singer-actress-provocateur to "stop prostituting herself" and then, after Cyrus mocked her, in a second missive, O'Connor said, "Who the fuck is advising you? Because taking me on is even more fuckin' stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism."
According to Page Six, "We’re told that all the recent controversy over her raunchy behavior — and public battle with Sinead O’Connor — has just 'got Miley’s creative juices flowing,' as insiders describe it. One NBC source told us of the 'We Can’t Stop' singer, 'She has been coming up with so many wild ideas that Lorne Michaels has had to rein her in. No topless twerking. Her mom is there with her.'"
While cast members are reportedly "jockeying to play O’Connor," Page Six says, "another TV source said, 'The biggest coup would be to get Sinead herself.'" Or O'Connor can make an appearance on SNL next month, when she's in New York, to show that Lorne Michaels has ended the "lifetime ban" over her Pope photo-tearing.
Anyway, we'd settle for the Wrecking Ball Kitten:
