Miley Cyrus has essentially thumbed her nose at critics who took her to task for smoking a joint on stage Sunday during MTV's European Music Awards in Amsterdam.

MTV, meanwhile, finds itself being praised for a change — thanks to Cyrus' latest stunt.

The "Wrecking Ball" singer, who has raised eyebrows with her twerking performances and scantily-clad videos and photo shoots of late, appeared to take a hand-rolled joint from her handbag and smoke it during her acceptance speech for winning best video. Later, she appeared to brandish a bong, the Los Angeles Times reports.

In response, Cyrus took to Twitter on Monday and wrote, "Sometimes in life you just gotta decide to not give AF."

Adding a little extra fuel to the fire, she later added on Twitter: "#feelingmyselffff so much fun last night! Amsterdam you're the dopesssst thank you for always being so good to me."

MTV won't be getting similar love from the singer. The award show's producers edited out footage of Cyrus' smoking for its stateside rebroadcast.

That earned MTV a rare pat on the back from the Parents Television Council.

"Last night MTV made a responsible decision and they executed it perfectly," PTC president Tim Winter said in a statement. "It is unclear whether MTV's actions suggest stricter content guidelines for its TV-14 programming, or whether this is just an example of the old saying that 'even a broken clock is right twice each day.' We certainly hope it is the former. We applaud MTV for taking responsible actions to eliminate the drug use from its U.S. broadcast, and we urge them to make that a uniform policy for all of its programming."
