After a social media absence that fueled death hoax rumors, Miley Cyrus returned to Instagram. And, in typically Miley fashion, she made a major statement -- by going topless!

The 'Adore You' singer uploaded a slew of photos Monday, consisting of everything from a chalk drawing to her blinged-out zit. However, the most eyebrow-raising snap of the bunch was a shot of Miley, wearing only a pair of cutoff shorts, facing away from the camera as she looked at the desert. The confident star seemed at ease as she made two peace signs with her hands.

This isn't the first time Miley has posed sans shirt. The singer stripped down for a Maxim shoot, supports the Free the Nipple campaign, appeared in an S&M-influenced video, and shared other racy photos on her Instagram. And, of course, who could forget her iconic 'Wrecking Ball' video, in which bared a whole lotta skin?
