She also informed Fallon, “I don’t just twerk and lick stuff.”
Cyrus talked to Fallon about her just-released album, Bangerz, and also found time to perform an a cappella version of "We Can't Stop” with his house band, the Roots.
Her wardrobe, an oversized white shirt with a built-in visible bra and suspenders, was also a topic of conversation. Fallon remarked that when his wardrobe department heard that Cyrus was going to be on the show, their reaction was, "Sweet, a night off!" When Cyrus jokingly complained that she was "catching pneumonia" in Fallon's cold studio, Fallon fired back, "But you have to wear clothes when you come out here."
The twerking comment came when Cyrus was discussing her appearance on "Saturday Night Live."
"That was a good time for me to show people that I don't just twerk and lick stuff, I can sing and I can act a little bit too," she said.
