The meta-ness of it is enough to make one’s head hurt: In a YouTube clip posted over the weekend, a heavily eyelinered Miley Cyrus released a JJ Fad-style rap explaining why she shut down her account on the microblogging service Twitter, basically rhyming her way through some musings on whether one should live their life or spend all their time just documenting it and missing things that were actually happening in the process. You know, in my day, bloggers didn’t have these sorts of Deleting Everything crises until they’d at least been doing what they did for 18 months or so! Clip after the jump.
Meanwhile, on her password-protected official site (transcription via PopEater) she also talked about taking an Internet break:
“Twitter is not the only thing I am cutting back on. This is not an attack against this particular site, I just think kids all over the world could maybe take a little vacation from Cyberspace. My problem with the internet is it makes negativity so available. It allows people to anonymously hurt others without any consequences. That is not the real world. Not only that, but if we spent more time enjoying what we are doing besides tweeting about it, we would enjoy our lives a whole lot more.”
