Miley Cyrus arrives on the red carpet for the MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Aug. 25, 2013.

Miley Cyrus’ tongue may be even more notorious than the singer herself. The 21-year-old pop star’s signature pose off the year has been sticking our her tongue (see picture at right). Why?

“I get embarrassed to take pictures. That’s actually the truth,” Cyrus told Barbara Walters in an interview for the upcoming ABC special, Barbara Walters Presents: The 20 Most Fascinating People of 2013.

“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,” she said.
