Last weekend, an article was shared on Facebook with the headline “(SHOCKING) Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Her Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home.”
If you clicked on the article, you were redirected to another page that encouraged you to share the phony news, essentially spreading fake surveys that make money. Ugh. Clickbait at its worst.
On top of that, Miley didn't post anything on her social media for three days and her fans went nuts. Many believed she was actually dead:
Cinthia freakin texted me that miley cyrus died while i was half asleep & i got so scared to sleep

Just yesterday, Miley proved she's not dead. She's actually topless in a desert.
Guess she's just being Miley.
