Miley Cyrus has actually left us dumbfounded with her latest confession about THAT signature photo face of hers.
The 21-year-old Wrecking Ball singer might be famed for her love of the limelight and fierce selfie obesession, but Miley’s now revealed the real truth behind her trademark tongue pose…
And guess what? It’s because she’s camera-shy!
‘I get embarrassed to take pictures. That’s actually the truth,’ the US songstress told Barbara Walters on her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013 special.
‘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, shy? Latex hotpants, grinding sessions with Santa and casual nipple flashing all beg to differ. Still, the twerk-tastic singer seems determined to show fans the softer side to her wild-child reputation.
Opening up about her failed engagement to ex Liam Hemsworth, she also admitted: ‘I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year.’
‘I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself.’
Aw. Maybe not such a wild child after all…
