Miley Cyrus smokes joint at MTV EMAs?

Los Angeles: Pop star Miley Cyrus once again took everyone by surprise by allegedly lighting up a joint during her MTV EMAs acceptance speech.

Cyrus, 20, was thanking her fans for making her win the Best Video for `Wrecking Ball` when she started digging through her bag to make some space for her award. She then pulled out what appeared to be a joint and began smoking it, reported TMZ.

"I couldn`t fit this award in my bag, but I did find this," Cyrus said holding up the joint before sparking it up.

The singer kicked off the 2013 MTV EMA with an alien-inspired performance by donning a metallic dress and astronaut helmet.

She took the stage at Amsterdam Ziggo Dome on November 10 to perform her single `We Can`t Stop`. Cyrus held a rocket-shaped microphone while singing and twerking with a female dwarf.

It was a tame performance compared to her eyebrow-raising dance with Robin Thicke on `Blurred Lines` during MTV VMAs in August.
