Kim Kardashian might be pleased with her debut on the cover of Rolling Stone, but there’s a certain opinionated celebrity who definitely isn’t.
Sinead O’Connor is famed for being outspoken, but her latest rant is one of her most foul-mouthed yet, and it’s all aimed at Kim.
Sharing a shot of the Kim’s Rolling Stone cover on her Facebook page, the Irish singer wrote: ‘What is this c**t (“I don’t smile much because it causes wrinkles”) doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died.’
‘Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be f**king horrified. #BoycottRollingStone #AGenerationIsBeingGroomedAndSilenced.’
But the comments below showed many didn’t agree. ‘Bob Dylan released an album which could only be bought at Starbucks. I don’t think Bob Dylan would be as horrified as you think. Rolling Stone is about selling magazines’, one user aptly wrote.
Kim’s not the only one the 48-year-old singer has publically laid into, either. Miley Cyrus and Simon Cowell have both received a battering from O’Connor in the past… And we have no doubt that Kim will be able to shrug this one off.
Just after the cover was unveiled, Kim gave a lecture on the objectification of women in the media at the Commonwealth Club of California. And she said some interesting stuff.

About baring her body in the media, the 34-year-old said: ‘I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think there’s power in that and I think I have the control to put out what I want so even if I’m objectifying myself, I feel good about it’, she said about the numerous bikini selfies she posts on Instagram.
She added: ‘I really do love social media. I credit it to a lot of my career. My career is based on openness, openness and honesty.’
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who is reportedly worth £55 million, also said that the sexy shoot she does are her decision, and she never thinks they’re distasteful.
‘Sometimes the media exploit me but I don’t care, as long as I’m happy and I like the photographer then I don’t care.’
But when it comes to the paparazzi, the pregnant star admitted she has mixed feelings. When asked what she thinks of them, she replied:
‘Annoying, but you know what I’m still a realistic person, without them people wouldn’t have taken much notice of me so I give credit where it’s due.’
Kim was also asked if she thought girls could be successful ‘in a man’s world’, to which she replied that she thought they could – as long as they didn’t rely on their looks. According to Kim, us ladies need to work as well as post bikini selfies.
‘There is this generation of young people — girls — who are beautiful but don’t have a strong work ethic’, Kim said. ‘People sometimes think that with looks things will be easy. But I just encourage people to put in the work.’
In her new interview with Rolling Stone, Kim also made a profound statement about the way she’s percieved. ‘I believe that I am so much smarter than I’m portrayed’, she said.
And as for being a successful businesswoman and a sex symbol, Kim says it’s not impossible. ‘I think you can be both. You can have it all.’
The mum-of-one also explained why husband Kanye West doesn’t appear on KUWTK much. Saying she respects his decision because they are ‘definitely opposites’, Kim explained: ‘You can’t expect me to jump up onstage and start singing — it’s not what I do.’
