Miley lights up in Amsterdam

 

In an unabashed — and likely successful — bid for attention, singer Miley Cyrus smoked a joint on stage and twerked with a dwarf during the MTV Europe Music Awards.

The 20-year old singer won the Best Video award for her hit song Wrecking Ball.

Sunday’s strong lineup of performers also included Eminem and Katy Perry.

Cyrus opened the show singing We Can’t Stop, while wearing a silver spandex suit and twerking. Marijuana is not legal in the Netherlands, but smokers can’t be prosecuted for possession of small amounts and it is sold openly in cafes.

UTAH GIVES THANKS TO ACTOR

Robert Redford was honored by Utah’s governor for his on- and off-camera contributions to the state.

Gov. Gary Herbert expressed gratitude to the 77-year-old Redford at a Saturday night gala in Salt Lake City that was attended by some 500 people, including U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker.

Redford is the owner of the Sundance ski resort and the founder of the Sundance Film Festival and Sundance Institute. Redford said he and the elected officials in the audience — many of them on the opposite end of the political spectrum from him — share common ground: a love for Utah, the U.S. and the people.
