While there’s no doubt her talent and career decisions have ultimately made her incredibly famous, Miley Cyrus has become known for many other things, too… You know, like, twerking, being naked a lot and sticking her tongue out--All. The. Damn. Time.

Everyone always wants to know: What is it with that?!

She’s grown up in front of camera, so it’s definitely not an anxiety thing.  She’s a gorgeous girl so it can’t be a confidence issue… So what the hell is it, then?

In previous interviews, Miley had said she hates smiling, which is why she reverts to sticking out her tongue, but in her latest interview with Australia’s Sunday Night, she claims it’s a much bigger issue.

“The tongue started from, again, with me having to go on red carpets, and everyone would just tell all these girls that had so much makeup on and their hair all done in their perfect, little, pretty dress to smile and to wave,” she tells reporter Chris Bath.

“I hated when the paparazzi would tell me to blow them a kiss,” she added.  “It just felt so gross, and like, sexist for me to be standing there and these men to be taking my picture.  So I just said forget it.”

She continues, “I didn’t want to be a pageant queen.  I wanted to be a f*cking, excuse my language, rockstar.”

She also goes on to explain how being a feminist should have a positive influence on her fans and why parents can’t really judge her for it.
