Tish Cyrus Taught Miley How to Stick That Tongue Out

    October 9, 2013

Miley Cyrus may have gotten the singing gene from her daddy Billy Ray, but she got her signature tongue-out-pose from her momma.

After performing on Today Monday morning, Miley and her mom Tish took a photo together, and Tish was the one with her tongue sticking out.

It’s a which came first, the chicken or the egg, situation. Did Tish teach Miley how to stick her tongue out, or did Miley teach Tish? I’m going with the latter.

It’s been a Miley-heavy past few days, with her documentary, Miley: The Movement airing on MTV on both Wednesday, October 2 and Thursday, October 3. Then the “We Can’t Stop” singer hosted and performed on Saturday Night Live. Cyrus was then interviewed and performed on Today on Monday, promoting her new album Bangerz, which was released on Tuesday, October 8.

Since Miley’s VMA performance, she has been criticized by so many, some worried where her parents were during this time.

Tish asked and answered that question herself during the MTV documentary, “Anyone that’s ever said, ‘Where’s her mother?’ Right beside her—through good, through bad, through arguments, through crying, through I don’t care what—right there.”

No matter what Miley has been doing lately, her mom is still proud of her. And Tish has taken to her Twitter to let everyone know just how proud she is of Miley.

Miley further explains her relationship with her mom in the documentary, saying, “My mom is my homie. If I win, she wins. Not because she’s my manager — because she’s my mom.”

During her interview with Matt Lauer on Monday, Miley shared her relationship with her parents, “My parents have always just been about being really who you are and figuring that out. What’s good about that is, I trust them a lot. I can go to them about pretty much anything. A lot of kids have to hide things from their parents and I don’t have to because my parents are just accepting.” She added, “That’s what real love is. It’s unconditional, and unconditional means that it doesn’t depend on what you’re doing. That means they love you no matter what, and that’s what parents are supposed to do.”
