Miley Cyrus has talents outside of twerking, licking things

Contrary to popular belief, Miley Cyrus doesn't get around town by twerking her way there.

That seems like part of the reason Cyrus avoided twerking - or licking things - on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend. The 20-year-old singer/actress told Jimmy Fallon on "Late Night" Tuesday that she wanted to send the message that she does, in fact, have other talents outside of what she's shown in her latest music videos.

"Everyone always has something to say, and I think people forget that what I love to do, I grew up performing. My show was a lot like 'SNL' in the way that we never knew what was going to be thrown at us," she said of her old show, "Hannah Montana." "I feel like ('SNL') was a good time for me to show people that I don't just twerk and lick stuff, I also sing and I can act a little bit, too."

Just in case some of Fallon's viewers missed the memo, Cyrus also performed "We Can't Stop" for the "Late Night" crowd. But instead of her usual twerktastic performance - or the kiddie instruments Fallon loves to use - Cyrus, Fallon and the Roots sang the No. 1 hit a cappella.

    What make her such a bad person for doing what she did? I bet all you pathetic a55es that have something negative to say about her, did something just as bad, even worse when you were her age. I guess it was okay for the flower child generation to smoke their pot, and chill out on acid, dance around naked, screw Tom, D¡ck and Harry and that was cool...right?

    No..I don't agree with what she did for the world to see, but I sure as h€ll I'm not going to come on here and say I was a saint as well. I guess I rather been known as an honest sinner than a lying hypocrite.

    Licking and twerking is enough talent-wise, on it's own.
