Why does the Internet have to be so mean?

Yep. Taylor Swift is just the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax.

A Twitter account trying to pass itself off as being associated with MTV News claimed the country cutie was found dead in her home over the weekend.

Fortunately, Gossip Cop reports Swift is indeed alive and well.

A similar hoax reared its ugly head back in 2009 after Kanye West famously interrupted Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Word that Swift has lived to see another day is obviously good news for her fans. Not to mention for new beau Conor Kennedy, as well.
