Our Cigarettes

Miley Cyrus reacts to MTV's censoring her smoking

Miley Cyrus Smoking Miley Cyrus' eyebrow-raising appearance at the European Music Awards on Sunday - which included lighting up what appeared to be a joint as she accepted her Best Video award - was cut by MTV for US audiences.

That has to be a big blow to the diva who's been hell-bent on shocking her fans since she twerked on the VMAs in August.

Her reaction? To blow it all off. 'Sometimes in life you just gotta decide to not give a f***,' the former Hannah Montana actress tweeted on Monday. 'Last night was a blurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.'

She also gave a shout out to a pal. 'Thanks @katyperry for hosting. So much fun last night! Amsterdam, you're the dopesssst, thank you for always being so good to me.'

Miley's antics can be seen on YouTube however, which offers a 35-second clip of the Wrecking Ball singer lighting up then squatting down for no apparent reason.

In the UK, the smoking footage was cut from pre-watershed airings of the show, but will be kept in for all broadcasts after 9pm.

Marijuana is not legal in the Netherlands, but smokers can't be prosecuted for possessing small amounts and it's sold openly in cafes known euphemistically as 'coffee shops'.

Miley's decision to light up on stage did little to impress many of her fans, with people taking to Twitter to comment on the act.

One wrote: 'Seriously wtf is wrong with miley cyrus?! Why would you smoke a joint at the ema awards?!'

While another added: 'Haha Miley Cyrus is now smoking weed on live TV. What next?'

Even This Morning host Eamonn Holmes put in his two cents, writing on Twitter: 'Miley Cyrus raises eyebrows again . At MTV awards she appears to smoke a joint. Tries a bit too hard to be controversial …'

It wasn't only Miley's cigarette choice that caused controversy at the awards, however.

Arriving at the red carpet bash, Miley shunned a fancy gown in favour of a backless halter top with drawstring detail at the front and sides, with very little protecting her modesty as the audience looked on.
