Miley Cyrus Explains the Tongue Thing to Barbara Walters (Video)

A mystery is solved on “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013”

Harken, for one of the great mysteries of 2013 has been solved: What's up with Miley Cyrus‘ tongue?

No, it isn't a tribute to Michael Jordan. Cyrus explains in a clip from Wednesday's “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013” that she sticks out her tongue because she is embarrassed to get her picture taken.

“I get embarrassed to take pictures. That's actually the truth,” Cyrus told Walters. “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.”

See? She's shy. You know how it is: Sometimes you're twerking in your skivvies with stuffed animals and then, hey, what's that camera doing there? How embarrassing. So you stick your tongue out.

Walters was kind of impressed by Cyrus, saying on “Good Morning America” that she is “much wiser than you would expect from seeing the antics.” She seemed to be referring to the VMA twerking and tongue-sticking.

One piece of Cyrus’ wisdom? Don't Google. After Walters informed her that some people have called her “desperate,” “deeply troubled” and “disgraceful,” Cyrus said she hadn't seen those complaints — because she doesn't seek them out.

“The minute I stopped Googling myself, you don't imagine what a happier person I am,” she said.

The latest “Most Fascinating People” specials is also the last one. This time next year, we'll have to use Google for the latest on celebrity tongues.

    Why does Miley seem to always have her tongue hanging out of her mouth?
    That way, it doesn't get in the way when she needs to take a crap.

  • grannie

    She thinks she is sexy. I wish somebody would get hold of that tongue and tie a knot in it.

  • A Mom & Grandma

    She is so NOT sexy. Sexy women have at least some curves. Her legs have no shape. Saggy breast for one so young. I have seen crack skanks that look very much like her. Come on Miley……you don't have to be Hanna Montanna but please try to be tasteful in some way.

  • fiftyeggs

    If a guy OD'd on Viagra, one of Miley's photos or vids would serve as an antidote.

  • Jermaine Burrell Sr.

    Quit being jealous. Miley is super hot so let her make her money and live her life. Besides If you don't like her so much, quit watching her videos and reading about her. It's mile you really know her anyway.

    • Rj Ransomed

      Says the desperate guy who idolizes people he will never meet and acts like he will. Spare us! She is going to look used up by 30 and we all know what pop culture does to their aged stars. When she looses her youth she will be discarded. She's a narcissist and has virtually no inner beauty. I pity her and dude…if you think THAT is hot…Wow. With all her money, she looks like a cheap streetwalker and at 21 her skin is already saggy. This is what happens when you objectify yourself as a woman…you become an object. Stupid girl

  • Pilgrim

    This woman is worst than Jezebel of the Old Testament Bible!

    • Rj Ransomed

      Yeah…somehow I bet ole Jezebel let her tongue hang out like that too.
      “Against whom are you mocking? Against whom do you make a wide mouth and stick out the tongue? Are you not children of transgression, offspring of falsehood and liars” Isaiah 57:4

  • HowieFelterSnatch

    Miley Cyrus is looks like an UGLY BOY with a CHEAP Hair Cut. I am SO Sick of Seeing that nasty “COW TONGUE” I refused to watch the New Years Eve ball drop just because that SKANK, I guess so we could watch that Little “Trailer Trash” Violate some other inanitimate object, I just find Her and Her WEIRD Daddy Bill Ray Cyrus to represent White Trailer Trash.

    • Rj Ransomed

      More evidence, you can take them out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of them…her Dad's a pimp…nothin’ but a pimp.

  • Bobo Brazil

    She sticks her tongue to show the world she likes to give serious head, to either sex preferably. Yet another reason to dig her.

  • seahorse

    Tongue should be boiled and then pressed and be sliced and served between two slices of brown bread and lots of mustard. She is sexless and talentless!
