Miley Cyrus explains why she sticks her tongue out all the time: 'I get embarrassed to take pictures'

Miley Cyrus’s tongue has been spotted out and about more times this year than a Kardashian, all five members of One Direction AND Justin Bieber all combined. To be honest, we were pretty sure the only explanation for it being seen so often was that it was attempting its own personal pop career.

Luckily, Miley’s revealed the answer to one of life’s greatest mysteries, and has explained exactly why her tongue is constantly flopping like an un-hairsprayed boyband quiff.

That GIF will never stop being amazing. Talking to Barbara Walters on her 10 Most Fascinating People show, Miley admitted that rather than it being an intentional part of her WILD PARTY GAL image, the tongue is actually a bit of a soggy, squishy cover-up.

“I get embarrassed to take pictures”, she confessed, while managing to keep the tongue in her mouth for once. “That’s actually the truth.”

“I’m so embarrassed because people are taking pictures of me, and I just don’t know how to - I don’t know how to smile, and just be awkward, so I stick my tongue out, because I don’t know what else to do.”

Wow, and there we were thinking that it had some kind of uncontrollable magnetic forcefield or something, it was that simple all along. Although if we could choose between the tongue or a Chandler-style camera smile, we'd probably choose the Chandler.

Well, of all the celebrity confessions of 2013, this one really STICKS OUT. Oh come on, that was quite good. Now that she’s admitted it’s a confidence thing, can we all start telling her how beautiful she is so that she shoves the ruddy thing back in her gob?

Are you baffled to hear that Miley’s floppy tongue is all ‘cause of confidence issues? Find it a little bit less annoying now, or is it still your least favourite celebrity tongue going?
