Everything's coming up Miley. Countless celebs chose Miley Cyrus' infamous Video Music Awards performance as the inspiration for their 2013 Halloween costumes, but no one did it quite like Jenny McCarthy. The View co-host put a unique spin on the idea by going not as Cyrus herself but as Cyrus' tongue, which the former Hannah Montana star sticks out every chance she gets.

On Thursday, Oct. 31, McCarthy shared a picture of herself in the hilarious ensemble, which consisted of a giant pink tongue coming out of an even bigger open mouth. "Yes indeed I am Miley's tongue," the funny blonde captioned the photo. "I craved sledgehammers all day."

The star was referring, of course, to Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" music video, in which the 20-year-old singer appears completely naked and licks a sledgehammer. Speaking about the making of the video in an interview with Rolling Stone recently, Cyrus said licking the sledgehammer was unplanned -- and unsanctioned.

"That sledgehammer was heavy as s--t," she told the mag. "My arms were so sore the next day. And they didn't tell me it was painted, so I was licking it, and they were like, 'Don't lick that!'"

As for why she can't seem to keep her tongue in her mouth? "I just stick my tongue out because I hate smiling in pictures," she explained. "It's so awkward. It looks so cheesy. Now people expect it, like, 'Put your tongue out!' It's just easier that way. But there's also something about it that I think is cool. Every other girl is so serious -- like, this is my moment on the red carpet, I'm in my ball gown, looking pretty. There's something empowering about what I'm doing right now...I think it's empowering for girls. Because there's not one thing that defines what beauty is."
