Miley Cyrus is feeling some cyber peer pressure. Days after she tweeted that rumored new beau and Last Song co-star Liam Hemsworth recommended she delete her Twitter account, the singer took to her official website to set the record straight about her internet blackout.
“I often complain to the ones closest to me that I don’t seem to have much of a private life any more and part of that is my fault. How can I whine about my life being [too] public if I am the one telling the world what I am doing?” she wrote. As for Hemsworth’s part in that decision, she explained: “I had mentioned to him that someone made a fake twitter with his name and we both starting chatting about how ridiculous it is. Liam is a wonderful friend and he did not try to make me delete my page, he just helped me realize how much time I was wasting on that site.”
As if to appease fans who worry they may lose touch with their teenage pop goddess, Cyrus happily posted a video on her official YouTube page echoing the sentiments she had posted on her website.
“No, it wasn’t because my friend told me to. Y’all know very well what you say I don’t do. And the reasons are simple, I started tweeting about pimples. I stopped living for moments and started living for people. I want my private life private. I’m living for me.”
