Sinéad's advice to Miley

Would-be enfant terrible Miley Cyrus finally is getting a reality check, thanks to one of her heroes. In an open letter, Sinéad O'Connor tells the hyper-sluttified Hannah Montana alum she's deluded to think "that it is in any way 'cool' to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos."

Sinéad praises Miley as an artist, but warns, "you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped." The music biz "doesn't give a [bleep] about you," Sinéad writes. "They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think it's what YOU wanted." Adds Sinéad, "Yes, I'm suggesting you don't care for yourself. That has to change."

Love 'n' family tidbits

A master thespian and, we imagine, a master of the sexual arts, Masters of Sex star Michael Sheen, 44, who has a daughter with Kate Beckinsale, ended things with Rachel McAdams in February. Us Weekly says he's moved on to a new, decidedly less famous gf, VH1 host Carrie Keagan, 33.

Gabshow host Chelsea Handler, 38, is back on the market, she hinted on her show during a chat with Mary McCormack. Unnamed Source tells People it's true: Chelsea has dispensed with gazillionaire André Balazs, whose ex-lovers include Uma Thurman, Naomi Campbell, and Renée Zellweger.

"Maybe I'll start dating a [woman]," Chelsea said.

Emile Hirsch, 28, who starred in Sean Penn's Into the Wild, is expecting a baby with a civilian, a Floridian, no less! He's not actually dating her, says the New York Daily News, but has promised to do right by her and the bairn.

Don't 'It Girl' Chloë Sevigny!

Chloë Sevigny hates being called an It Girl. "It must come up when you Google me," she tells Town & Country.

"I'd rather cut off my pinkie than Google myself," she says.

"I never felt that was the correct label because I saw that as meaning 'flash in the pan,' or 'socialite,' or 'rich girl,' or, 'druggie girl' . . . even though its origin is Clara Bow, who was the coolest thing ever."
