Miley Cyrus can't stop taking her clothes off. 

The "Adore You" singer, 21, lost her top for the umpteenth this week, stripping down to just a skimpy pair of shorts. Cyrus got partially nude for the sake of an Instagram photo, which she posted on Monday, July 21. 

In the shot, the former Hannah Montana star stands with her back to the camera. She wears a scanty pair of cutoff jean shorts and nothing else, her cropped blonde hair in a mini-topknot. 

Cyrus keeps the image Instagram-friendly, baring just her back as she holds her arms above her head with her hands making peace signs. 

The stripped-down shot comes just days after the "We Can't Stop" performer was the victim of a death hoax. A fabricated story went viral this past weekend, claiming Cyrus was "found dead in her Los Angeles home." 

The fake article used a screen grab from visuals Cyrus created with the Flaming Lips, which insinuated that drugs were involved in her "death." 

With a recent slew of bold Instagram photos, she proved she is not only still alive, but still very much Miley. One year after she took the stage at the Video Music Awards as a whole new Miley Cyrus in her famous performance with Robin Thicke, the pop star is up for two awards at the 2014 VMAs, including Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball."
