Many fans were revealed to find out that Miley Cyrus is alive and well.
Media speculated that Miley was having a break down around 2013 when she released her album Bangerz. The singer went viral for her twerking and in a recent interview with Elle UK magazine she spoke about dancing on a teddy bear.
“I feel like the luckiest woman doing what I do, but being a pop star is kind of the dumbest sh*t of all time, and I was kind of embarrassed that I got paid to shake my ass in a teddy bear costume,’ she says. ‘I should not be worth the amount I am while people live on the street. Nothing I do will justify that. But I have so much influence as a pop star, it’s important I use it.”
Miley Cyrus is currently working on her next album. She is also keeping busy by using her talents as a key advisor on the tenth season of the singing competition and TV show The Voice.
The singer is a cannabis advocate and has been open about using the plant. In an interview with the Rolling Stone, Miley Cyrus also spoke about being in the spotlight:
“I said I was going to take a year off before I made this record. But it’s hard to take a break. It’s almost depressing when you’re not working. You’re so used to people calling your name, and that energy, and when you don’t have it anymore… That’s why I never complain about people wanting autographs or pictures.”
Miley Cyrus is not dead. Did you fall for the hoax? And where did you read it?
