Miley shocks again at MTV EMAs

She made her mark at the MTV Video Music Awards at Brooklyn's Barclay Centre in August, but controversial songstress Miley Cyrus wasn't about to stop short with her headline-grabbing ways at the MTV EMAs at Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome on Sunday.

The 20-year-old singer, who since shedding her "girl-next-door" Hannah Montana image has become a hot topic of conversation for her tongue-poking, booty-twerking, scantily clad outfits and near-naked antics, ensured she was the centre of attention at the star-studded event, which was hosted by The X Factor judge Redfoo.

Despite again drawing media attention with her jaw- dropping stage performance - which again involved her signature twerk moves alongside a dwarf dancer - Cyrus took home the award for Best Video for her hit track Wrecking Ball.

Taking to the stage in a tight, skimpy white bodysuit with a cropped fur jacket to accept her award, Cyrus shocked audiences when she pulled out what appeared to be a marijuana joint out of her Chanel bag.

"I don't have room for the award in my bag but I did find this," she said as she took a puff from the joint, after giving her thanks to fans and Wrecking Ball video director Terry Richardson.

While marijuana is not legal in the Netherlands, users cannot be prosecuted for possessing small amounts.

But this did little to deter Cyrus, who has previously confessed to using cannabis and had no qualms about lighting up on stage.

Ahead of her award victory, the troubled starlet arrived on the red carpet decked out in one of her many eye-popping outfits - a skin-tight, backless, low-cut halter top paired with checked patterned above-the-knee boots.

While Cyrus takes the cake for the most controversial, it was chart-topping rapper *Eminem * who was the biggest winner in the award stakes.

The outspoken 41-year-old, who recently unveiled his first album in three years, took home two awards for Best Hip Hop and Global Icon.

Katy Perry also scored an award, having won Best Female Artist and Justin Bieber, who did not attend the event, won the Best Male award for the fourth consecutive year while UK boy band One Direction won the award for Best Pop.

Singer Beyonce, who wrapped her sold-out Australian tour at Perth Arena on Saturday, won the award for Best Live act.
