Miley Cyrus is kicking the habit with plans to retire poking out her tongue during her performances and in music videos, something that she’s been doing for the past year. The singer is making a lot of changes since her infamous performance at the VMAs.
“It’s the new Miley tongue, it’s kind of like my style now,” she told French television show Le Grand Journal. “They’re all doing it, but it’s getting a little old. I’m going to have to retire it!”
She added: “For as long as it is, you would think that I could touch my nose! I mean I’ve tried it, I can’t! I’m so close!”
Cyrus’s new music video for “Wrecking Ball” recently broke the VEVO record for the most views during its first 24 hours online, accumulating 19.3 million clicks.
The star has since told fans she will release a director’s cut of the video when the original tops 150 million views.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer also touched upon her provocative MTV Video Music Awards appearance last month, which sent the social media networks into a spin with 4.5 million people chiming in online about her risqué performance, which saw her grinding and twerking up against Robin Thicke and wagging her tongue.
She laughed: “I just think if you make the choice to do something in front of the world, there’s no going back and apologizing now.
“I already did it, there’s no going backwards. I do everything I do for a reason. My mum is very proud of me!”
Former “Hannah Montana” star Miley, 20, explained she has sexed up her image in order to attract the world’s attention and make an impact.
She said: “I wanted to make history which I think we did over the last two weeks … I think all that matters is having good intentions. [The VMAs video] did do well online, everyone in the world is thinking what am I going to do next.
“All are on me and I’ll do what I wanna do so people remember me. It’s bittersweet.”
