Miley Cyrus Offers Up Her Wisdom In Three Tweets, Denies She's Dating Austin Mahone

It was a big year for Miley Cyrus and it looks like she's learned a couple of lessons after discovering that pretty much every move she makes has the potential to end up as a headline.

On Sunday (Dec. 15), she took to Twitter to offer up some of the wisdom she's gleaned over the last year in three simple tweets:

my topless pic is showing less than when I wear clothes haha. People are proving my point so easily.

We're not sure if the 21-year-old is referring to her most recent topless photo, which she posted on Twitter on Dec. 14 (as part of her support of the "Free The Nipple" campaign) or if she's referring to any number of topless photos she's taken over the past year -- since there were plenty.

Merry Christmas ❤️❤️ THANK YOU NY for being one of the few states to @freethenipple pic.twitter.com/ouXhlBrXVW

Next lesson: She's learned that she can't hug anyone of the opposite sex without the onslaught of dating rumors:

DONT hug your friends goodbye unless you wanna be rumored "dating"

— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) December 15, 2013

Again, we're guessing that Cyrus is referring to a photo of herself hugging her Jingle Ball tourmate, 17-year-old Austin Mahone.

@theBrandiCyrus jealous???? Ps why does it look like crying?! Like I'm the world biggest Austin Mahone fan?!?! pic.twitter.com/Bdt0ouKLwT

And though she's hugging him (and looking strangely over-emotional), she wanted to make it very clear to the world that they aren't dating:

I wanna think more of the world but people just keep proving their stupidity.

— Miley Ray Cyrus (@MileyCyrus) December 15, 2013

If it seems like Cyrus is a bit fed up, recall that the tabloids tried to link her to her assistant back in October, bizarrely dubbing him a "mystery man." It's easy to see why she might have had enough of these kind of rumors.
