Britney Spears’ Special Tongue Trick

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / August 19, 2010


Everyday I say to myself, How could the internet possibly surprise me today? And then it does. Take, for example, the hawk-eyed Britney Spears’ fan who noticed that ever since Brit made her pop music debut, she’s been doing this tongue-flicking maneuver when she sings words that start with the letter L. “Lucky.” “Loneliness.” “Let.” Her tongue darts out and flicks the top of her lip and I dare say that it’s intended to be subtly sexual. Also, as BuzzFeed notes, it’s very hard to do without looking like an idiot. Trust me, I tried while looking (LOOKING! Flick!) in the bathroom mirror just now. [BuzzFeed]
