Miley Cyrus lit up the hand rolled cigarette as she collected the Best Video award.
Pop star Miley Cyrus has stirred up more controversy - by lighting up a suspicious looking cigarette on stage at the MTV European Music Awards (EMA) in Amsterdam.
The star, who came under fire for provocative performance at the Video Music Awards in September, pulled the hand rolled cigarette out of her purse after accepting the Best Video Award from Ron Burgundy.
The wrecking ball singer said she could not fit the award in her purse and pulled out the hand rolled cigarette instead.
While the contents of the cigarette are not known, the former Disney star previously told
Rolling Stone magazine marijuana was "the best drug on earth".
Marijuana is not legal in the Netherlands, but smokers cannot be prosecuted for possession of small amounts and it is sold openly in special cafes known as "coffee shops."
