MTV Censors Miley Cyrus Smoking Apparent Joint at Music Awards Show

Cyrus lit a cigarette that looked like a joint at the European Music Awards

The MTV censors have spoken. The EMAs just aired on the East Coast, and the portion of Miley Cyrus' acceptance speech where she lights up what looks like a joint has been cut out. In the edited version that aired in the U.S., Cyrus barely says one line before the camera cuts to an ultra wide shot of the audience and comes back to her for an awkward good-bye. (You can watch and compare the unedited and cut versions below.) Had MTV opted to leave the smoking stunt by the 20-year-old Cyrus in, the network most certainly would've gotten into hot water with watchdogs and parents.
