Miley smokes 'joint' at MTV Awards

Miley Cyrus performs at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam

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.

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.
