Miley Cyrus lit what appeared to be a joint on stage at the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam last night.
Miley Cyrus, 20, was accepting her award for best video for Wrecking Ball.
She opened her bag, took out the rolled up cigarette and lit it in front of the crowd.
The drug is not legal in the Netherlands but you will not be prosecuted for having a small amount in your possession and it is sold openly in cafes in the city.
The fans in Amsterdam did not seem to find it offensive.
Miley Cyrus performed twice during the ceremony, opening the show with We Can’t Stop.
She later silenced the room with a powerful vocal performance of Wrecking Ball, stood in front of a video of her crying.
Meanwhile at the event, Eminem picked up best hip hop act and the global icon award.
Bruno Mars won for best song, while Justin Bieber and Katy Perry picked up best male and female.
There were performances from Snoop Dogg, Kings of Leon and The Killers.
30 Seconds to Mars picked up best alternative act, beating Arctic Monkeys for the fan voted awards.
“We’re just happy to be at the party, enjoy the insanity, it’s our fifth time at the EMAs and we have a lot of gratitude,” frontman Jared Leto said.
The MTV EMAs will take place in Glasgow in 2014, where they will be held at the brand new SSE Hydro venue.
