Miley Cyrus kept the party going after last night’s Video Music Awards, sharing what appeared to be a joint with members of the media backstage. See photo at right.

“Because you’re all my friends and my song is kind of, sort of about the love of marijuana, slash, the love of human kind, I brought a little joint if anyone would like any,” she said. After taking a few puffs for herself, the headline-grabbing star happily passed her stash to several reporters and photographers.

Cyrus, whose entire family was in the audience, also made numerous references to her love of weed while hosting the live-two hour telecast on MTV. In fact, her show closing performance, a song called “Dooo It!” is an homage to marijuana and begins with the lyric, “Yeah, I smoke pot.”

After arriving in the press room in an inflatable body-hugging, pink latex dress, which had her pot song’s title on it, the singer was apparently ready to wind down from an evening that saw Cyrus expose a boob on-air and briefly engaged in a testy back-and-forth with Nicki Minaj.

Of course, Cyrus was not the only celebrity who appeared to be partaking in some off-camera pot smoking at the VMAs. Before announcing his candidacy for president in 2020, Kanye West admitted that he had taken a few hits backstage. “The answer is YES,” he said. “I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off.”
