Like mother, like daughter!
Tish Cyrus pulled a Miley—sticking her tongue out in that signature pose—while her daughter snapped a selfie of the homies hanging out on the Today plaza in NYC on Monday, Oct. 7.
The "Wrecking Ball" singer performed live to the delight of all her smilers and chatted with Matt Lauer about her relationship with her mom Tish and dad Billy Ray Cyrus. "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," she said. "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."
"That's what real love is," she continued. "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."
Tish addressed her daughter's critics in the MTV documentary Miley Cyrus: The Movement. "Anyone that's ever said, 'Where's her mother?' " she said, then answered, "Right beside her—through good, through bad, through arguments, through crying, through I don't care what—right there."
And right now, things seem to be going pretty well for the former Hannah Montana star! Her album Bangerz officially released at midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 8 and quickly rose to no. 1 on iTunes. "OMG OMG OMG #bangerz is #1," Miley tweeted. "I love you all so F--KING much! I wanna squeeze everyone of you."
That might be a little difficult logistically, so for now, we'll have to settle for more selfies.
