Friday's Flashback Video: Sinead O' Conner's "Nothing Compares 2 U"

It's Friday and I'm happy to say I'm pleased to have made it through another week. I'm officially in countdown mode. A week from tomorrow I'll be on the beautiful island of St. Martin with my mom and sister for a birthday vacation celebration with my mom. She is yet another year older (won't say her age), but she still looks fabulous and I hope that I'm working it like her when I'm her age.

Ms. Miley Cyrus seems to still be on the minds of folks in the world of celebrity weeks after her disturbing VMA performance with Robin Thick last month. I know they say that even bad press is good (I wholeheartedly disagree because it's no fun to watch people publicly fall apart.) Towards the end of this week, even Sinead O'Connor had words of advice for Miley Cyrus. Sinead knows what it's like to be ridiculed in the media. I found her advice to be right on point, but it looks like Miley would prefer she kept her opinions to herself. Read it here. I applaud her open letter and it's why I've select Nothing Compare 2U" as Friday's Flashback video. In my opinion this is one of the best covers that comes close to being better then the original that was song by Prince.

Nothing compares to Sinead. I love that she is still vocal in and out of the world of music! Have a good weekend and see you back here next week!

So true on a few accounts: the song is a brilliant cover by Sinead, and she knows firsthand what it means to be on the wrong side of the media spotlight. Also like your comparison a couple of weeks ago of the ways that Janet Jackson and Miley Cyrus chose to announce their "coming of age." Love this feature! Looking forward to next week.
