Miley Cyrus is not dead

Miley Cyrus dead, killed by a drunk driver?

You know it’s a quiet weekend when yet another celebrity is said to have died, and this weekend it’s reports that Miley Cyrus is dead.

The rumor seems to have started by a video uploaded to YouTube that included the following statement:
“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!”

Another site has an alleged statement from the “President of Walt Disney Records,” although I’d note that the statement is even more poorly written than the alleged death statement:

This Is The President Of Walt Disney Records And I Can Honestly Say That Miley Cyrus AKA Hannah Montana Is Not Dead And She Is Currently In New York City Doing The Final Episode Of TRL. We Are Doing Our Best To Find Out Who This Hacker Is. Thanks You For Your Concerns Miley Fans”

Like any online rumor we can’t be 100% sure it’s not true, but given no mainstream news site has picked it up, we’re calling it false.

Here’s the video at the center of the rumors:
