Miley Cyrus Was So Amused By Her Death Hoax She Thought She’d Drag It Out Even Longer

Everyone knows you’re nobody in show business until you’ve been the victim of a death hoax. Lucky for Miley Cyrus, she had another one happen this weekend. An Epoch Times report declared on Saturday that she’d died of an overdose, but Miley is apparently alive and well, according to a Hollywood Life post titled, “Miley Cyrus Dead? The Truth About Whether She’s Alive.” Have we discovered the Headline of the Week already? But it’s only Monday!

The hoax report declared, “{SHOCKING) Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Her Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home.” How shocking! I had no idea Miley Cyrus was a country singer! The report was apparently part of a scam designed to spread surveys to make money, but that didn’t stop people from worrying it was true. After all, Miley hasn’t posted to social media since Friday, and there was that whole hospital trip in April. What makes it even sadder is that her last Instagram post was a photo of a toilet with the caption, “#art.” This is why you should always end your day with an inspiring photo of a sunset or something, so you’re remembered for something beautiful if you die.

But Hollywood Life wants you to know the truth about Miley’s breathing status, dammit. The truth according to an anonymous source, obviously:

“Miley is just laying low and hanging out with her new dog and just relaxing,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She is aware of the death hoax and thought it was actually pretty funny. By not responding, she thinks it is that much more of a joke because people are continuing to believe it.”

Oh, to be a celebrity and have so much power. She can just hang out with her dog and sign out of her Twitter account for a couple of days and watch in amusement as her fans run around like chickens with their heads cut off — which I’m pretty sure is the theme of Miley’s next music video. My personal life motto is “Always believe Hollywood Life,” but what if they’re wrong this time?! Please post a photo of your tongue or something, Miley. The world is concerned.

      ….the scam artist for putting out the fake story, or Miley for finding amusement in letting her fans believe it’s true? Or Jill for including that creepy GIF of Miley in the article??

    I don’t understand who makes these rumors up?! Who decides one day that this is the best use of their time and resources to spread this shit? I just can’t imagine being someone who intentionally spreads hurtful and stupid crap!! This one just hit home a little harder today.

    WHY DO PEOPLE SUCK?

      I’m actually considering getting that last question as a tattoo.
