Sinead O'Connor has called for a boycott of Rolling Stone after they put Kim Kardashian on the latest magazine cover.

In an expletive-ridden post on Facebook, the controversial Irish musician questioned why the iconic music publication would place reality TV star Kardashian on its front page.

"What is this c*** doing on the cover of Rolling Stone?," she wrote below a snapshot of the upcoming issue featuring Kanye West's wife.

"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***ing horrified. #BoycottRollingStone"

This is not the first time the singer has hit the headlines after sparking an online feud.

A public argument between O'Connor and Miley Cyrus began on the pages of non other than Rolling Stone.

In an interview, the former 'Hannah Montana' actress-turned-pop-superstar referenced O'Connor's 'Nothing Compares 2 U' video as an inspiration for her own 'Wrecking Ball' clip.

An open letter from O'Connor advising Miley to not let the music industry 'make a prostitute out of you' fuelled the fire for an ongoing war of words.

Time will only tell if Kim Kardashian will respond to this outburst in a similar fashion.
