The legendary singer quit Twitter last September after concern was raised about some of her posts. She explained on her blog she decided to quit after her account was hacked into. She wrote: 'It’s a shame as I've had great fun and want to thank those with whom I shared fun.
'Those who have become friends have my email address so do keep in touch. Again, many thanks for all the fun. Love yiz.'

The teen singer deleted her Twitter account she claims because she wants to 'keep her private life private'.

And she charges fans $29.95 per year for membership of her blog.

James McClean was forced to shut down his Twitter account yesterday, after receiving death threats from irate Northern Ireland fans in the wake of his call-up to Euro 2012. But he is not the first celeb to delete their account....
