Miley Cyrus finally answers the one question people keep asking in the past few days, why she abruptly deletes her Twitter account. In a more than one minute video, the 16-year-old Disney star raps the reason why she is quitting the popular social networking site.

"Yeah, the rumors are true, I deleted my Twitter," so she raps. "I had to say goodbye and this little rap is to tell my fans why." Accompanied by four female backing dancers, Miley continues rapping, "I want my private life private. I'm living for me."

"Yeah, you write what you're doing but who really cares. If I'm playing with Noah or just doing my hair. Everything that I type and everything I do. All those lame gossip sites take it and they make it news."

Miley Cyrus created buzz in showbiz after abruptly deleting her Twitter account on Wednesday, October 7. Providing no single explanation, she indicated in one of her last tweets that she shut down her account upon being requested by her rumored boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. "FYI Liam doesn't have a twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason," she tweeted.

By the following day, fans-organized online campaign dubbed "mileycomeback", which is aimed to get Miley re-activating her Twitter, has become one of the most trending topics on the site. Miley's father Billy Ray Cyrus has also urged her to return to Twitter, writing on his own account "Miley. You are light in a world of darkness. You were born 'Destiny Hope Cyrus' for a reason.You can't leave everyone now. We r countin on u."

Good for you Miles! You seem to be such a good girl (sorry, I mean: "young lady"!) and you do need time to finish growing up away from the public. I hope you are having a good time whatever you may be doing. It is hard enough for a 'normal' kid to enjoy a childhood without being rushed, but for you...well, I imagine it must be a battle. By deleting your Twitter, you are taking a step in the right direction.

U gota b kidding, dude! U say ur 2 busy yet u have time 2 make a damn rap video about quitting Twitter? How is that video any different than "Tweeting?!" Ur still takin WAY 2 MUCH TIME informing ppl about ur every move. I just cant believe that THIS is what we consider "entertainment" these days. Seriously tho,Cyrus...ur just WAY 2 corny 4 anythin other than the Disney channel.

I will miss checking in on her. I'm going to take at least one non-Miley fan to her next movie, "The Last Song", in April. How about it "mileysucks?" Free Popcorn!
