The Ying Yang Twins have written a song titled "Miley Cyrus"

Miley Cyrus just can't stop twerking, and the "We Can't Stop" singer's love of the dance move has earned her a very special tribute song by the Ying Yang Twins.

The rap duo definitely loves Miley's signature move -- you might remember their tune about twerking titled "Saltshaker." The lyrics in "Miley Cyrus" are pretty explicit, but we have a feeling that the former Disney star will love the song since the Ying Yang twins have taken the liberty of renaming the twerk in her honor. Here's what the rappers told TMZ about their new tune: "Our fans have been starving for some authentic twerk music. Seeing that Miley Cyrus wants to show the world she is grown by twerking, we decided to give her a little help."

Cyrus isn't the only celebrity whose name can be found in a song title. In fact, Miley recently made a cameo in the music video for "(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum." The video featured "Magic Mike" hottie Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, and a bunch of other celebs turning the actor's name into something naughty.

British boy band The Wanted also created a somewhat silly music video for their tribute song titled "Walks Like Rihanna." The guys spoofed past boy band music videos by becoming the *N SYNC puppets from "Bye, Bye Bye" and wearing all-white outfits like those donned by the Backstreet Boys for "I Want It That Way." The Wanted seem to think that the object of their affection could still be a superstar without any talent, which is evidenced by these lyrics: "She can't sing/She can't dance/But who cares/She walks like Rihanna."

Speaking of women who don't need any special skills to be famous, Kim Kardashian also scored her own titular tune last year when Soulja Boy sang this about the reality show star's famous curves: "Damn, she's fine, she's on my mind/She's so beautiful from the behind."

Kim's old idol also got a tribute tune when Robbie Williams and the Pet Shop Boys teamed up for "She's Madonna." The song is rumored to be about how Guy Ritchie broke up with Tania Strecker, whom Williams later dated. Ritchie allegedly told Strecker, "I'm sorry, I love you, but she's Madonna." However, Robbie claims that he just penned the tune because he admires the Material Girl.

Male celebrities can get their names in song titles, too. Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera teamed up to pay homage to the stage antics and boundless energy of legendary Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger with "Moves Like Jagger," and Taylor Swift's "Tim McGraw" was the country crooner's first big hit. According to Taylor, she wrote the song during her freshman math class. Her song was all about a romantic memory, making it somewhat similar to Eric Church's nostalgic "Springsteen" -- Church sings about how Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" makes him relive his glory days.

Of course these are just a few songs with celebrity names in the titles. Which of your favorites weren't included here?
