Miley Cyrus

So, Miley Cyrus, tell us how you really feel about Twitter.

"So I was that person who was like, 'I'm so sad. I have no real, normal life, everyone knows what I'm doing.' And I'm like, well that's my own fault because I'm telling everyone," the reformed tweet freak told in a recent interview.

"And then I'd tweet, 'I'm here,' and I'd wonder why a thousand fans are outside the restaurant. Well, hello, I just told them."

Cyrus, who used to have more than a million people following her on the microblogging site before she decided to join boyfriend Liam Hensworth in no-Twitter-account land, said she doesn't regret dropping such a "lame" hobby. (Though she may have spent just as much time explaining her reasons for signing off as she did online.)

"I'm a lot less on my phone, I'm a little bit more social," the 17-year-old star of The Last Song said. "I have a lot more real friends as opposed to friends who are on the Internet who I'm talking to—which is like not cool, not safe, not fun and most likely not real. I think everything is just better when you're not so wrapped up [on the Web]."

And she's not just talking Twitter. Cyrus has apparently soured on the whole social-networking scene.

"I just think it's kind of lame," she said. "I feel like I hang out with my friends and they're so busy taking pictures of what they're doing and putting them on Facebook that they're not really enjoying what they're doing. You're going to look back and have a million pictures, but you're not going to be in any of them. Because you're not having fun, you're too busy clicking away. So I think just enjoy the moment you're in, and stop telling people about it. Just enjoy it."

Or, sometimes you end up in the wrong pictures, and that's not any fun, either.


We doubt Miley minds posing for the kinds of photos that wind up in our 2010 Oscars: Arrivals gallery.
