Don't think these social media naysayers got Miley down though -- the 19-year-old hit back with plenty of self-affirming tweets of her own (i.e. "self love is the greatest of all flatterers."). But the most significant Twitter support came from none other than funny woman Ellen DeGeneres. Who knew Ellen was so invested in Miley's new 'do?
The television host posted a photo of herself with Miley's controversial look (courtesy of Photoshop) and tweeted, "I love @MileyCyrus' new haircut so much that I copied it." Very cute, Ellen. And since the cropped cut isn't a far cry from the 54-year-old's normal look, we have to say that it kind of suits her. And so do all of the positive vibes. As for Miley, we just want to tell her: Hater's gonna hate, so keep rocking the look!
