Sinead (shuh-NAYD') O'Connor is demanding an apology from Miley Cyrus for repeating two-year-old tweets O'Connor posted about her mental health issues. But Cyrus apparently thinks she did no wrong. Asked yesterday if she and O'Connor would kiss and make up, Cyrus replied: ``I don't know. Are we supposed to kiss?'' In her latest open letter to Cyrus, O'Connor complained that she has gotten a series of messages urging her to kill herself and says they started coming in after Cyrus' mocking tweets. O'Connor also says it was wrong for Cyrus to repeat the old tweets and compare her mental health to that of Amanda Bynes who has been treated in a psychiatric hospital. O'Connor says that forced her management to have to explain to people in the music biz that she is still capable of performing.
