The closing ceremony for the 2012 Summer Olympics dominated much of the social conversation Sunday evening, but an additional topic of interest was Miley Cyrus’ new hairstyle.

The Disney alum, who had been spending much of the summer showing off her toned-up body in workout clothes, drew eyeballs to a different part of her body with a shorter, dyed hairstyle.

Reaction to her hairstyle decision was so strong that Cyrus was forced to Tweet out, “if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. my hair is attached to my head no one else’s and it’s going bye bye :)” ahead of posting new pictures.

Upon posting them, she later added, “Never felt more me in my whole life ?”
