CHECK OUT! What is Miley Cyrus' Favorite Pose For Pictures [PHOTOS]
Miley Cyrus is undergoing a transformation. From a demure belle who had long hair and wore floral dresses in her Hannah Montanna days, the 20-year-old is changing to an in-your-face, crotch holding, rock star with a pixie cut!
She will continue to transform in the coming years too as she is quite young. However one thing that hasn't changed about her is - her favourite pose!
Guess what could be the signature pose for most of her photographs, be it Twitter selfies, famous photographer's studio shots, award winning pictures or even the cover art of her album? No it's not holding her crotch (though the frequency of pictures that has appeared of Miley in this pose recently is many) or giving an expression of exclamation. You will be surprised to know that Miley loves to get clicked with her tongue sticking out!
The gesture of sticking out one's tongue has many implications ranging from being rude, sexy, showing disgust or even acting playfully innocent. Miley seems to depict most of these moods in her pictures.
Maureen O'Sullivan, a psychology professor at the University of San Francisco who studies nonverbal communication told New York Times in an earlier interview, "The mouth is a sexual orifice from a young age."
"It's like the eyes," she said. "An eye gaze can be aggressive to an enemy, but eye gaze can also be the height of intimacy."
Her latest tongue-selfie on Twitter is where she licks an MTV Moonman trophy. "It's going to be super-dope when I win my VMA, my Moonman, 'cause one, I already made out with him, so now he has to go home with me," she told MTV in an interview.
Looks like Miley's tongue sticking in this image of MTV Moonman trophy implies she is confident of her work and does not brood about who will win or not.
"I don't think about my competition," Cyrus says. "I just think about what I'm doing."
We sure wish good luck to Miley as she has stiff competition from Devi Lovato in the Best Female Video Category and she is pitched against One Direction and Robin Thicke for Best Summer song for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards 2013.
