Miley Cyrus has really tried hard to shed her former Disney sweetheart image, so playing Tinker Bell is about the last thing she would ever want to do. In fact, she’d rather choke on her own tongue than take the role.
Last month, at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, NBC announced that Peter Pan would be its next live musical to follow in the footsteps of Carrie Underwood’s successful The Sound of Music. There’s still no word on what big star will appear in it, but Cyrus would certainly be an amazing publicity move for the struggling network.
In fact, as Gossip Cop notes, the tabloid Star suggested this week that Cyrus would play Tinker Bell in the special. “Miley is determined to get better reviews than Carrie Underwood,” a ‘friend’ told the paper.
But Miley would rather choke than do it. Gossip Cop not only debunked the rumor, but Cyrus took to Twitter to shut it down as well. “I would rather choke on my own tongue,” she wrote, including a picture of the Star story.

NBC’s Peter Pan is slated to air around the holidays. It would require a long commitment for any star and with her ongoing BANGERZ tour, Cyrus would probably have to pass even if she was interested.
