(Newser) – Miley Cyrus is alive, and a report of her death was the work of a hacker, E! Online reports. A video claiming Cyrus had been killed by a drunk driver went up on the teen sensation's own YouTube page over the weekend, using her new single “Goodbye” as background music and featuring a message supposedly from BFF Mandy Jiroux. Jiroux reassured fans of Cyrus' wellbeing via MySpace, and said the video has been removed.
