Miley Cyrus Smokes Pot On Stage In Miami, Latest In Series Of Bizarre Antics By 22-Year-Old Star

Among her latest antics, Miley Cyrus smokes marijuana on stage and wears a weird silver wig and exposes her thong underwear, according to reports of her private performance at a Miami, Florida, art show.

"Usually I don't smoke weed and drink, well that's a lie," the 22-year-old former Hannah Montana star told the crowd at Art Basel. "Usually I don't smoke weed and drink on show days, but I felt like it was fine in Miami."

Cyrus gave her unhinged concert at Miami's Raleigh Hotel, warning the audience, "You thought (Art Basel) was a respected place where you could escape me."

While Art Basel, an international art show that also runs galleries and performances in Hong Kong and the Swiss cultural hub of Basel itself, may indeed be respectable, there was clearly no escape from Miley Cyrus as she lit up a marijuana cigarette in a performance that the Associated Press described as "bizarre and emotionally transparent."

According to the AP report, Cyrus opened the poolside hotel concert by bringing an unidentified woman on stage who exposed her breasts and joined the "Wrecking Ball" singer in a duet of the 1981 Rick James hit "Super Freak."

She prefaced a song, which she said was written when she had a dream in which a friend's pet cat spoke to her, by saying that "[t]his year has constantly challenged me, and that's why I started doing art."

While the year may have been a "challenging" one for Cyrus, whose real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus, her chart-topping success certainly cannot be among those challenges. She reportedly earned more than $76 million in 2013 and with continued sales of her hit album Bangerz, its subsequent tour and numerous side projects, she could be expected to pocket at least that much cash in 2014 as well.

But the "We Can't Stop" singer did mention that the recent death of her beloved pet dog, who was killed by a coyote, caused her to question the significance of her various professional and personal endeavors.
