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.

"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.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
