One of the reasons Cyrus is nicknamed a tongue b*tch is that the most controversial part of her body is her tongue. 

The Atlantic commented on her tongue, “There has been a lot said about Miley Cyrus in the past few weeks, and with her new Rolling Stone cover, a lot more is being said. But why is no one addressing the obvious? Her tongue is always hanging out.”

Cyrus’s tongue was also questioned as an embarrassing unsexy sign of a girl trying too hard or a brilliant sendup of prepackaged coy femininity that is genius in its grossness. 

9. Schmilerz

According to fanfiction, the plot fiction of Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus involves a series of conversations. In it, Taylor Swift said to Miley: “Woah, hold up there, Schmilerz.”

The plot further reveals that Swift and Cyrus go to the dressing room together.
