MILEY TO MATT LAUER - SEX STOPS AFTER 40: MILEY CYRUS made a stop at NBC’s "Today Show" on Monday, where she not only performed two tracks off her new CD, she sat down with MATT LAUER and fielded questions about her new image, and her beef with SINEAD O’CONNOR, among other hot topics.

Matt asked her about her new sexualized image and when she thought it would end, to which Miley playfully replied, “I hear when you turn 40, things start to go a little less sexual so probably around 40. I hear people don’t have sex anymore, so I guess maybe around then.” Lauer then asked Miley how old she thought he was, and when she said 40, he told her, “I love you,” explaining he was 55. She then teased, “Oh then you’re really definitely not sexual.”
