When it comes to shocking her fans, there are few things Miley Cyrus hasn't tried.
But the shock-pop princess took things to a whole new level on Sunday night when she lit up a suspicious-looking cigarette ONSTAGE at the EMA awards at Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome.
As she picked up the award for Best Video for her track Wrecking Ball, Miley grinned as she attempted to shove the award into her bag, before pulling out what appeared to be a joint and telling the audience: 'I can't fit it in my bag... but I did find this!'
However, the act was deemed so controversial by MTV bosses that it was edited out of the show when it was aired in America.
Instead, the two-and-a-half-four show featured only a brief shot of Miley accepting her award and thanking her fans.
But a 35-second clip of Miley lighting up later appeared on YouTube, giving US fans a chance to see the controversial moment.
In the UK, the smoking footage will be 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 is 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.
