Miley Cyrus reportedly thinks that the death hoax played on her was "hilarious". The Wrecking Ball hitmaker has also apparently advised tricksters to come up with more creative ways to kill her than in the bathtub after an overdose of prescription pills.

"Miley [Cyrus] thinks that it is hilarious that she is the latest celebrity to be caught in the death hoax," a source told HollywoodLife. "When it happens again she hopes the people who make the hoax think of a more clever way on the reason for her demise since the bathtub reason was pretty weak for her more morbid sense of humor."

The 23-year-old singer became the victim of a death hoax on 5 September with false reports claiming she was found dead in a bathtub inside her Hollywood home.

"Miley Cyrus' lifeless body was found by her entourage in a bathtub at her Hollywood home on Wednesday, authorities revealed. Los Angeles investigators are trying to determine the cause of death. Officials refused to comment on reports that the famed actress/singer drowned from a prescription pill overdose. They have, however, made it clear that there were no signs of foul play," Now8News reported, according to Snopes.

The songstress is not the only one to be hit by a death hoax in recent times. Sylvester Stallone was the victim of one such false report on 1 September.

The 70-year-old actor reportedly did not take his death hoax lightly as his "Labor Day was ruined by this," a source said. "He's maintaining a good sense of humor about it, but it has been impossible for him to relax with family cause his phone is ringing off the hook," the source added.
