11 Things Miley Cyrus Has Licked -- And Why

What do a $50,000 piano and space weed have in common? Miley's tongue.

Miley Cyrus is a cultural icon on her own, but her tongue is likely just as famous at this point. It's her most trusted accessory and, besides her endlessly cute puppy photos and her Halloween foray into Disneydom, it's what she can rely on time after time for recognition.

Truly, the tongue has some serious powers.

And as we know, with great power comes great responsibility. That's why Miley's pal Linda Perry, who co-wrote her gorgeous "Hands Of Love" song from the movie "Freeheld," recruited Miley's tongue for charity over the weekend.

At the 46th Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards (hosted by the Los Angeles LGBT Center), Miley approached a $50,000 piano signed by Christina Aguilera, Adam Lambert, Gwen Stefani and others and, naturally, licked it -- in order to heighten its value moments before it was to be auctioned off, ET reports.

Miley's a known LGBT warrior, so the partnership makes sense. She was also honored for her Happy Hippie Foundation, which helps homeless and LGBT youth, saying in her speech: "I'm thinking of tonight not as celebrating what we've already done, but what we're doing and what we're going to do in the future."

The whole thing reminded us of what Miley's licked throughout the years -- and there's a lot. (For the record, 2013 was prime licking time. Things have calmed down a lot since then.)
