Naturally, the photo caused a lot of confusion and after it was claimed she had an eating disorder, Miley decided to clear things up.

Tweeting to reassure her followers, Miley added: "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!"
