Miley Cyrus Dead? Nope, Just Another Internet Death Hoax

martes, 18 de noviembre de 2008 |

The 'Hannah Montana' star was falsely reported to have been killed by a drunk driver.

Like the rumors about Mark Twain, reports of Miley Cyrus' death have been greatly exaggerated.

The "Hannah Montana" star is alive and kicking despite an Internet hoax over the weekend that claimed she had been killed by a drunk driver, report news sources.

Someone had apparently hacked into the YouTube account Cyrus, 15, shares with her friend Mandy Jiroux and posted a video alleging the tragic and grisly death. The fake message attributed to Jiroux claimed: "Miley died this morning after being hit by a drunk driver. She always told us if anything ever happened to her then tell her loyal fans first before the public. R.I.P Miley, we'll never forget you!"

This caused a frenzy on Google with "Miley Cyrus Dead" becoming the most searched phrase on Sunday (Nov. 16).

The real Jiroux caught wind of the false rumor and smacked it down with a message on her MySpace page, saying, "MILEY IS OK!! Some1 hacked our youtube account."

And although the vampires in "Twilight" have made dead folk all the rage among the teen and tween set, Cyrus' fans will be happy to hear she was looking in the pink while conducting interviews on Sunday for "Bolt," a Disney animated film for which she lends her voice.

Young, impressionable minds that need even more proof that she's alive can check out her special performance on the season finale of "Dancing With the Stars" on Tuesday, Nov. 25.
