Miley Cyrus has always been a fan of far-out fashion, but her latest accessory certainly takes the cake.

The 22-year-old singer is now the proud owner of a mermaid tail. Cyrus showed off the scaly green and blue faux fin in a new Instagram photo.

In the image, posted Tuesday, Cyrus lounges in the grass with her hand placed on her hip. The “We Can’t Stop” singer is topless, but diamonds have been artfully photoshopped over her breasts to adhere to Instagram’s nudity policy.

“When your mermaid tail comes and you’re the happiest human in the whole wide world,” Cyrus wrote, tagging pal Katy Weaver.

Cyrus was recently tapped to host the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30.

The gig comes just two years after Cyrus’ infamously risqué performance with Robin Thicke in 2013.

Cyrus released another promo for her hosting stint on Monday, sharing a somewhat-NSFW Instagram video.

In the clip, Cyrus wears a glittery cherry headpiece and stands in front of a green screen. She mimes a Jack-in-the-box, revealing her middle finger and sticking out her tongue in classic Cyrus fashion.
