Miley Explains Decision to Light Up on Stage

Miley Cyrus knows how to make news. She did that with her joint hit seen 'round the world Saturday night at the EMAs, and now says, "I knew that the whole place would just go super-wild."

In this interview with London's Capitol FM radio station, Miley says she did not plan the pot stunt.

Miley: "We had the joint and we're all, Should we keep this? This is like THE joint. And then we were like, No, it's fine to smoke it, just finish it off. After you do something like that, then everyone doesn't want to talk as much about your performance. But this is one of my favorite parts about coming to Europe. Even though that happened, it's not like the main focus of the night. Everyone was coming up and hitting me up about my performance and like how I sound, which is so different than when you do something in the States. When I did the VMAs everything just became about the teddy bears or what I was wearing. People over here really like to listen. They take in all of it… It's not something I think about. I was just walking out of my room and then I was like, Oh, I have this in my bag. That'll be really funny. I didn't say anything to anybody. I didn't tell anyone I was gonna do it. Some people over-think so much. That's not why I do it. I just did it mostly because I knew the fans in Amsterdam would love it, and they started going crazy when I did it. I knew that the whole place would just go super-wild… Amsterdam is always way too good to me. My fans are extra-excited that I love going there so much. Every time I have any time over in Europe and I have a few days I try to go spend some time in Amsterdam. The reason I like it so much is it kind of feels like being in L.A. with this London-y (feel). I like the weather and the vibe there and it still feels different, but it still reminds me of L.A., but it's kinda small. It seems like a movie set to me. I'm so high that it doesn't feel real. I've never been somewhere that looks so perfect and clean… Everything there doesn't really seem real."
