With the entertainment world still recovering from her ‘Wrecking Ball’ video and twerking antics, Miley Cyrus stirred up further controversy by lighting a joint on the stage of the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA).
Miley arrived at the ceremony in a revealing mini-dress emblazoned with images of murdered rappers Notorious B.I.G and Tupac Shakur and the words "please stop violence".
While her recent antics have been widely slammed, a few critics and musicians have supported the singer, citing the change in Miley Cyrus as part of her growing up. However, this time around at the MTV EMA Awards 2013, perhaps even Miley’s staunchest supporters would have to curb their enthusiasm, as Miley lit up a joint on stage cementing her reputation as the bad girl of pop.
The incident happened when the controversial singer got to the stage to accept her award for best video for Wrecking Ball at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam where the MTV Europe Music Awards were being held. Accepting her award, the We Can’t Stop singer, lit up a suspicious looking cigarette.
While Marijuana, or weed, is not entirely legal in the Netherlands, it is something that is generally accepted and openly sold in coffee shops around Amsterdam.
The 20-year-old has been trying hard in the recent times to shed away her Disney princess image. And no doubt the new Miley Cyrus is as far from her Hannah Montana persona as humanly possible.
Recently, her performance from the MTV VMA 2013 with Robin Thicke got Miley a lot of negative press. But then again, Miley herself and a lot of other stars defended her on stage antics by calling it art and growing up. And to give Ms. Cyrus her due, MTV usually likes to shock its audiences, and Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s performance went some ways to do just that.
