Miley Cyrus is finally explaining why she sticks her tongue out in photos.
The 21-year old opened up to Barbara Walters that what’s become a signature look for her is actually the result of awkwardness.
“I get embarrassed to take pictures. 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.”
Miley Cyrus is featured as one of Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People special airing Wednesday night.
