In what would have been a Sophie's Choice situation for Miley Cyrus,"selfie" has been chosen as the Oxford Dictionaries international word of the year, besting the similarly ubiquitous "twerk."

Expect to read about "Selfie"'s celebratory bash in Page Six tomorrow, which we hear will be held in a dimly-lit house of mirrors with a playlist including Beyonce's "Me, Myself and I," Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors," and former Jersey Shore cast-member Angelina Pivarnick's seminal classic, "I'm Hot."
