VIDEO: Miley Reveals Why She Quit Twitter – Through Song
Cyrus explains she wants to keep her "private life private" in a new YouTube rap
Miley Cyrus‘ final Tweet on Thursday may have suggested that her recent decision to quit Twitter was influenced by a certain Australian costar – and rumored love interest. But don’t blame Liam Hemsworth for the teen star’s decision to silence herself on the social media site.
In a new YouTube video, Cyrus, 16, speaks, well, sings out about her personal reasons for quitting. “Yeah, the rumors are true, I deleted my Twitter,” Cyrus raps in the backstage video – complete with choreography. “I had to say goodbye,” she continues, “and this little rap is to tell my fans why.”
Her reason? Simple! “I want my private life private,” she raps. “I’m living for me.”
When Cyrus deleted her official Twitter account on Thursday, her last Tweet referenced her The Last Song costar directly. “FYI Liam doesn’t have a Twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason,” she wrote at the time. Now, she clarifies in her song, “It wasn’t because my friend told me to. I stopped living for moments and started living for people.”
