Miley Cyrus laughs off online death hoax

London: Pop star Miley Cyrus posted a topless photograph on Instagram to dispel an internet death hoax.

The `Wrecking Ball` hitmaker, who was subject to the internet hoax this week, had been unusually quiet on her social media accounts and decided to come back with a bang to slam the rumours, reportedly.

In the picture, the 21-year-old star shows off her legs in a pair of denims and is seen putting her bare back towards the camera against a backdrop of a desert.

She also posted a number of selfies with colourful accessories in her hair. "#ladytonguecontroller. We`re not sure what that means, but at least she`s not on the way to the mortuary," she wrote, slamming fake stories about her death circulating online.
