In a completely transparent attempt at stealing the night’s headlines, Miley Cyrus smoked a joint at the EMA Awards while on stage. I guess she didn’t realize that most of the fans in attendance or people watching the show live would be young teenage fans, or maybe she just didn’t care. Actually, she probably didn’t care. Most of her recent behavior points to her complete lack of apathy regarding accepted social norms or conventions.
Although it’s not technically legal to smoke weed in the Netherlands [which is where the ceremony was held], Miley wouldn’t be prosecuted for possession of small amounts, and besides, it’s sold pretty much openly in all the ‘coffee shops’.The smoking wasn’t the only famewhore trick Miley pulled tonight – in keeping with her image, she decided to twerk with a dwarf and also wore marijuana emblems in her earphones while performing Wrecking Ball. Not to mention that her outfit was extremely racy, and if it was one inch shorter, it would have showed a lot more than what would have been acceptable on national television.
In the re-broadcast of the show during the US airings, the footage containing Miley smoking was reportedly edited out, not that it will help all those poor people who had to sit through her famewhore tactics in Europe.
Although I was always hesitant to believe that Miley had gone off the rails, considering what she had to put up with during her relationship and breakup with ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth, it’s becoming clearer and clearer that she has. Such completely see-through tactics to gain attention, especially when she doesn’t need it, are patterns exhibited in narcissistic celebrities that have nothing better to do – and previously seen in trainwreck Lindsay Lohan. I’m not saying Miley can’t pull herself out of this mess before she ends up on that path, but again, it doesn’t look likely.
