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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You must be decisive. Don't leave your Fate in the hands of others. If you need more money, ask for a raise. Are you dissatisfied with a relationship? Issue an ultimatum. Are you perturbed by an ethical matter? Speak on behalf of justice. People will be uncomfortable with your dramatic behaviour, but they will respond to it. Waiting for a miracle to arrive simply isn't wise. When you want to make a change, you have to take action, even at the risk of being unpopular.More
