In Part One of my coverage of the Celebrity Battle Of The Century (this week at least) I discussed how two very similar astrological transits separated by over a decade managed to bring both Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor a lot of (largely negative) publicity: Sinead with her Saturday Night Live protest against The Catholic…
