Miley Cyrus has lost some weight and whenever that happens to a famous young women, people start speculating about eating disorders and anorexia and freebasing horse tranquilizers. Anyway, Cyrus was photographed out and about in LA looking more slender than usual (above) and concerned shit disturbers took to the internet. Enough so that she felt compelled to reply.
Turns out, though, Miley’s just jumping on the extremely trendy gluten allergy bandwagon (which has, understandably, provoked people with actual celiac disease to apoplectic fits).
She responded to the cries of “Eating disorder!” with the following explanation:
For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!
Soon after, she again tweeted about the concerns but she made her new diet sound a lot less like a real allergy: “Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, phyisical and mental health is amazing! U won’t go back!” Surely she understands the distinction between “having an allergy” and “wanting you skin to look good”? What with the sudden ubiquity of gluten-free products, we’re not so sure.
Granted, Cyrus wasn’t exactly helping matters when she tweeted a photo of herself huffing a Carl’s Jr. bag with the caption, “I can’t eat it. So I’m just gonna smell the shittttt out of it! My mouth is LITERALLY watering.”
