Miley Cyrus recently said in her weed-is-the-best-drug-on-earth Rolling Stone interview that she based her instantly infamous "Wrecking Ball" video on the haunting, tearful image of Sinéad O'Connor in the video for her 1990 mega-hit, "Nothing Compares 2 U."

Yet it seems the quirky Irish musician is less than flattered.

O'Connor, 46, penned an open letter to Cyrus, 20, on her website, reports E! Online, and O'Connor makes it clear that she believes swinging naked on a wrecking ball and twerking your way to the top isn't a recipe for a healthy, fulfilled existence.

Love is not for Sinead O'Connor. Neither, she says, are the journalists of her native Ireland.

"Certain sections of our media are pure evil," the singer, whose lively website has chronicled her marital travails, states in a blog post Friday.

"These people, along with others caused enormous damage deliberately and maliciously to my innocent flower of a husband, purely because he was with me," O'Connor writes of husband Barry Herridge – whom she wed on Dec. 8 in Las Vegas, then separated from 16 days later.

It looks like Sinead O'Connor is walking away from her 16-day marriage bolder but wiser.

The "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer, 45, announced her split from fourth husband, Barry Herridge, on Monday, 16 days after the two tied the knot in a well-planned Dec. 8 drive-through wedding in Las Vegas. Now, O'Connor tells Britain's Sun tabloid, "I don't think I will even date anyone."

What sabotaged the union? "It felt like I was living in a coffin. It was going to be a coffin for both of us, and I saw him crushed," she says of Herridge, 38. "The whole reason I ended it was out of respect and love for the man."

Her wedding may have been "too glorious for words" but Sinead O'Connor's honeymoon will simply have to wait.

"We don't really have time for that because we're both working a lot," the singer, who tied the knot with Barry Herridge in Las Vegas last Thursday, told PEOPLE Tuesday at the Giorgio Armani and Cinema Society screening of Albert Nobbs in New York.

On the agenda instead? "Lots of snuggling," said the singer, who performed an original song, "Lay Your Head Down," from the film, which stars Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Glenn Close as a woman posing as a man to keep her job as a butler in 19th century Ireland.

In a brief blog post Friday, entitled "About the Glorious Marriage," O'Connor included a snapshot of "the celebrity guests at our wedding," which took place Thursday in Las Vegas.

The accompanying picture? Empty pews.
