According to The Daily Mail, O'Connor appeared on Ireland's Late Late Show Friday, where she told host Ryan Tubridy that Cyrus' decision to bring Amanda Bynes into the argument "was a nasty thing to do, but acknowledged that it was unlikely Cyrus intentionally meant to hurt Bynes.
"It's about music being murdered, it's not actually about Miley," O'Connor said, adding, "As far as I'm concerned it's over. It's not something I really want to talk about."
And while O'Connor refused to say more on Cyrus — or her two new cheek tattoos B and Q — she did take the opportunity to slam the music industry in general.
"The money-making end of music is taking over," she said. "Why I would engage in wanting to talk to certain artists is ... as a mother and ... as a person who loves music and believes in its power to change things."
O'Connor even used her own career to prove her point about sex overshadowing the actual music. "I was asked to wear mini-skirts and grow my hair and that is why I shaved my hair. I wanted to be genuinely judged on my talent and not how I looked," O'Connor said.
