Revealing just what makes her tick, Miley Cyrus explained why she sticks out her tongue every time a photo of her is taken.

Apparently, when she is hounded by paparazzi, the 21-year-old superstar sticks out her tongue in order to cope with her nerves, especially when surrounded by photog's and non-stop questions.

"I get embarrassed to take pictures. That's actually the truth," the "Wrecking Ball" singer said in her approaching "10 Most Fascinating People" interview with Barbara Walters.

Miley continued, saying, "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."

Also responding to the negative criticism her twerking and radical image have garnered, she stated, "I know I’m not, so that’s why I just kind of laugh. I refuse to Google myself. The minute I stopped Googling myself, you don’t imagine what a happier person I am."
