Miley Cyrus 'SNL' promos reveal just why her tongue is always out

Miley Cyrus is the host and musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" this week, and in new promos for her appearance, the singer finally reveals why she's always sticking her tongue out.

"It's how I smell," Cyrus tells cast member Taran Killam. "That's how you smell? Like a snake?" Killam says. And then out comes the tongue as Cyrus sizes up Killam. "Are you wearing women's deodorant?" she asks him.

The spots are a clear enough indication that Cyrus has a good sense of humor in the wake of all the attention she's received of late, starting with her much-talked-about performance at the MTV VMAs.

Killam tells Cyrus that he doesn't watch TV or read the news, and wonders what she's been up to since she last hosted "SNL."

"You might want to take a few minutes to Google me," Cyrus tells him. Killam leaves the shot, returns one hour later with a deer-in-headlights look on his face and says, simply, "You've been busy."

Cyrus will remain busy into next week. The "Wrecking Ball" singer is scheduled to perform on TODAY on Monday.
