On television, Disney star Miley Cyrus can flip between her normal self and her Hannah Montana alter ego, just by putting on a blond wig.cyrus

On the Internet, the 16 year-old Cyrus also can switch off unwanted public attention, just by deleting her Twitter page, as she did on Thursday,  without a clear explanation.

Will Cyrus’ departure herald a celebrity exodus from Twitter? Don’t count on it.

Just this week, Elizabeth Taylor used the website to announce to the world that she was going into the hospital for heart surgery. And even as Cyrus quit the website, “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan announced that he was joining it Thursday. Why? Because his fans wanted him to, that’s why, Morgan said.

Miley Cyrus “kinda bummed” about early release of Walmart EP

Miley Cyrus said via Twitter on Wednesday she’s “kinda bummed” that her new Walmart-only EP “The Time of Our Lives” went on sale earlier than planned, denying her a chance of topping the U.S. album charts.

The seven-track disc sold 62,000 copies during the week ended Sunday, Aug. 30, according to tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan, after hitting shelves on Friday. Albums are normally released on Tuesday, not Friday, but the shortened time span of three days of sale for Cyrus’ album was good enough to land it No. 3 on the Billboard 200 Wednesday.

The perky smiles on Disney’s fresh-faced teen stars are probably not so wide these days.

In a little over a week, we’ll be talking to Miley about her new movie, and she’s agreed to take a few questions from Fan Fare readers. We’ll publish those in a Question and Answer story near the film’s release date.

In the movie, Miley’s “Hannah Montana” character, Miley Stewart, is struggling to juggle school, friends and her secret life as a pop singer that has soared into the stratosphere of stardom. So, dear ol’ dad (played by her real life father Billy Ray Cyrus) takes Miley back to Tennessee for an earth-bound reality check.

It’s been an eventful year in celebrity news, and even if it has been light on scandals , stars held the attention of fans. 
    
But some big names, notably Michael Jackson and Miley Cyrus, appear to have worn out their welcome, according to a fan poll from celebrity Web site Parade.com.

Some  41 percent of respondents said Jackson, who turned 50 in 2008 with no sign of making good on repeated promises of a comeback,  should officially retire. They also said the pop star’s antics are the most disturbing behavior from any Hollywood star.

Fashion guru Tim Gunn has given Disney teen star Miley Cyrus the thumbs down when it comes to style.miley-3.jpg 

 ”(Miley Cyrus) is just a little too tarty, forgive me. I don’t want her to look like she’s going into a convent school, but it’s just a little too much for a 15-year-old. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear she was 25,” Gunn told OK! magazine.
