Wait!? Is Miley Cyrus giving the international sign of “I need an Altoid!”?
We’re not sure why Miley Cyrus felt the need to, like, point out her tongue while greeting fans in Paris. Trust, girl, from your VMA performance to that recent Terry Richardson shoot — not to mention, um, pretty much everything you do ever — we are puh-retty familiar with your tongue. Maybe Miley just got a new tongue scraper and was all, “SEE?! These things DO work!” Or, perhaps Ms. Milez was trying to communicate: “If my new ’Wrecking Ball’ video were food, it would taste sooooo good I’d just put it in my mouth all Akinyele-style!”
And if that’s the case (Spoiler Alert: IT’S PROBABLY NOT!), Miley’s plan twerked like a charm because “We Can’t Stop“/ won’t stop watching the extremely GIF-able clip! Seriously, it’s like my feels are having baby feels that then turn around to say “I wuv you Mama Feels!” every time I watch it. These are Demi Lovato “Skyscraper” kinda feels! “Rascacielo,” even!!!!
Just like in Paris, Miley’s tongue has its very own cameo in the video, stealing the spotlight from the singer by licking a hammer because, um, that’s what you’re supposed to do with hammers, right? (No, really, we’re not very handy.) WAIT! Back to the picture up top! Since Ms. Cyrus can’t speak French, what if she’s just trying to pantomime to her Parisian Smilers that she can still French a sledgehammer?? It’s at least as likely as the tongue scraper theory, because WHO USES A TONGUE SCRAPER.
