Miley Cyrus has been making headlines for twerking up a storm lately - but how does she do it? Apparently, she shared the secret with "Saturday Night Live" star Taran Killam.

"She said, 'It's more about the ankles. You'd think it's about the hips, but it's not, it's more about the ankles,'" he told Vanity Fair. (Killam and Cyrus twerked together during last week's episode of "SNL.")

"She's with it, she's funny, she gets it," Killam added of Cyrus. "And she's got a fantastic voice."

Killam added that Cyrus has changed a lot since her last hosting experience in 2011, saying "there's been some hullabaloo in her life."

"So, we were a little guarded," he noted. "I can tell you she's reaching for that icon status, but she's fully in control."
