Miley Cyrus has sparked yet more controversy - after she appeared to light a rolled-up joint on stage.

The singer hogged the headlines with her appearance at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam, which is known for its liberal laws on cannabis.

Miley, 20, took what looked like a joint from her handbag as she accepted the award for Best Video for her song Wrecking Ball.

"I couldn't fit this award in my purse but I did find this," she said before flicking a lighter and smoking it.

The Bangerz singer opened the show with a performance of We Can't Stop, where she "twerked" with a dwarf.

Miley, who flashed the flesh on the red carpet in a backless mini-dress, previously courted controversy in August, when she twerked with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards and performed suggestively with a huge foam finger.

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
