In a statement issued earlier today, Hiram Thicke, the agent for pop diva Miley Cyrus said the star attended hospital to have a handle inserted into the right side of her head.
The star, who is the most followed and tweeted personality ever by both the undead and the institutionalised, has trouble with her tongue, which seems to be continually hanging out.
The final straw was the embarrassment this caused when she undertook a concert at the Hartford Family Naturist Camp in Connecticut, where members were seen to stand to attention in anticipation at the sight of her tongue hanging out.
Although security people were able to calm the members down using copious buckets of iced water and pictures of Barbara Bush, despite valiant attempts, the star's tongue remained hanging out of her mouth for a further five weeks.
She was admitted to the local clinic last Friday where a specialist, Dr Frank Enstine lead a team of highly-trained surgeons who grafted the handle of her wrecking ball to the side of her head, attaching the chain to her tongue.
She can now wind-in her tongue when required, thus saving the further embarrassment of members wherever she goes.
