Miley Cyrus Literally Sparks Controversy Again

(Radio.com) Miley Cyrus did something controversial. While that's like calling the sky blue, Cyrus did indeed ignite a firestorm of outrage at the lavish MTV European Music Awards ceremony in Amsterdam by lighting up and smoking what appeared to be a joint onstage while accepting the Best Music Video prize for her much-discussed "Wreaking Ball" video.

As scandalized parties railed against the young pop star's onstage behavior, Cyrus took to her Twitter account to let it be known in no uncertain terms that she could care less what anyone thinks about her public actions with a terse, 11-word missive. She tweeted "sometimes in life you just gotta decide to not give AF."

The ensuing controversy was thorny enough that MTV edited out the footage of Cyrus smoking the hand-rolled cigarette during the American broadcast of the EMAs, a decision that was applauded by the Parents Television Council.

"Last night MTV made a responsible decision and they executed it perfectly," said Tim Winter, the president of the Parents Television Council (via EW). "It is unclear whether MTV's actions suggest stricter content guidelines for its TV-14 programming, or whether this is just an example of the old saying that 'even a broken clock is right twice each day.' We certainly hope it is the former. We applaud MTV for taking responsible actions to eliminate the drug use from its U.S. broadcast, and we urge them to make that a uniform policy for all of its programming." more on this story
