If only Robin Thicke had joined her!
Miley Cyrus had a really, really good time hosting the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards in L.A. on Sunday, Aug. 30. So much so, that the “Wrecking Ball” singer kept the party going in the pressroom — with a joint ready to go.
An onlooker tells Us Weekly that Cyrus, 22, smoked backstage following the nearly three-hour show. (Thanks, Kanye!) Clad in a pink bubblegum rubber suit, she passed the joint to several photographers in the front row. Not to mention, she brought along a bag of avocados!
“We’ve probably all known each other a long time, and because you’re my friends and my song is kinds sorta about the love of marijuana and the love of human kind, I brought a little joint if anyone would like any?” Cyrus said. “Anyone?”
But there’s more. She also joked about carrying a Moonman and West’s bizarre, and very long speech while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. “I didn’t actually win one of these — they just give it to you for free because you host. I just wanted to clear up with you guys,” she said, pointing to the statue. “I’ve been hosting so I got used to the microphone and just talking to people like I could give a f—k, so I’m just going to keep doing it in my normal life also. I’ve been taking notes from Kanye.”
Indeed, Cyrus sufficiently expressed herself during the star-studded show inside L.A.’s Microsoft Theater — and deftly thought on her feet when a certain female rapper called her out onstage.
Check out more of Cyrus’ outrageous moments below:
1. Nicki Minaj Gets Cutthroat
Just a friendly awards show! Oh wait, never mind. The “Anaconda” entertainer took aim at Cyrus for throwing her under the bus in a recent New York Times interview. Earlier this week, Cyrus disagreed with how Minaj reacted when she didn’t get nominated in the Video of the Year category. On Sunday night, Minaj mouthed “don’t play with me bitch” after accepting the award for Best Hip Hop music video.
And the tiff was no act, either. “Nicki was livid with Miley and decided to air her feelings onstage,” an insider exclusively told Us. “The anger was very real and not a pre-planned bit at all.” Cyrus kept her cool in the moment and congratulated her instead of fighting back.
2. Keeping Up With Kim’s Cleavage!
What is happening right now!? Cyrus wasn’t just impressed with West’s rant — and 2020 presidential bid. The former Disney star also joked about Kim Kardashian’s nipples and how she, well, would totally suck on them. (And showed just how she would!) The very pregnant reality star was in the audience with Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner at the time.
3. Pretty Pot Mess!
No need for a foam finger! Cyrus stuck out her tongue (because, of course!) and whipped her hair back and forth a la Willow Smith with several backup dancers — an army of RuPaul’s Drag Race alums — during her “Dooo It!” set. At one point, The Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne even shot a smoke cannon between her legs.
4. Nip Slip Problems!
It was bound to happen. Cyrus suffered a wardrobe malfunction while changing backstage behind a black curtain. The unfortunate incident happened when she turned to the camera and reached for her microphone.
5. Weirdest Selfie Ever?
Um, cool? Cyrus tried to beat out Ellen DeGeneres’ star-studded 2014 Oscars selfie while kicking off the show. She joined a random group of fans (and Kardashian!) for the Instagram snapshot. What’s more, she asked for everyone to yell “marijuana” instead of “cheese.”
6. Wacky Wardrobe Changes
So much nipple tape! Cyrus turned heads over and over again in her eye-catching outfits throughout the show. Some of the highlights included a very revealing silver bathing suit, hot pink pants, an orange visor and crop top, a plunging jumpsuit, and a plastic see-through dress. During the pre-show, she barely covered her ample assets in a silver strap-bodice and bedazzled skirt.
7. What Do You Mean, Miley!?
The host threatened to strip down after Justin Bieber, 21, performed his new single “What Do You Mean?” for the first time. “Call me when you’re legal, Justin,” she quipped.
8. These Brownies Are Strong!
Cyrus ate marijuana brownies with Snoop Dogg during a pre-recorded segment. (Shocking!) The Mindy Project star Ike Barinholtz and Andy Samberg also awkwardly gave her hosting tips before hitting the stage.
