When host Kimmel noted she was "almost naked", the outrageous pop star said, "I'm a little cold... You could've warned me."

Admitting he was "embarrassed" and "flustered" and didn't know where to look when his guest showed off her exposed breasts, cheeky Miley added, "This is the trick, you just wanna stare at my eyebrows or something."

Kimmel asked Cyrus how her dad Billy Ray Cyrus reacts when she posts near-naked pictures online and poses naked in magazine shoots, prompting the provocative pop star to state, "My dad's cool because I'm sure he'd maybe rather me not have my t**s out all the time, but he'd rather me have my t**ts out and be a good person than have a shirt on and be a b**ch.

"I see a lot of people with their clothes on and they're kinda a**holes... If you've got you t**s out you can't really be an a**hole... I feel better this way."

And Miley admitted her penchant for wearing as little as possible works well for her when she meets icons like Sir Paul McCartney.

She explains, "I did the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Joan Jett... and we were talking to Paul MCCartney and I saw him not knowing how to talk to me and I don't know really how to talk to Paul MCCartney, so it made me very comfortable because it made him uncomfortable."

Miley wasn't just on the show to promote her hosting gig at Sunday's (30Aug15) MTV Video Music Awards - she also hit the streets outside the studio disguised as an Australian news reporter and asked passers by what they thought of Miley Cyrus.
