Just weeks after her provocative twerking routine sent tongues wagging at the MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus took centre stage on Saturday Night Live.
She poked fun at the VMA controversy and a host of other topics, including her former Disney alter-ego Hannah Montana, when she hosted and performed on Oct. 5.
“In case anyone is concerned, you should know there will be no twerking tonight — I used to think twerking was cool, but now that white people are doing it I think it’s kinda lame,” she said.
Cyrus also spoofed her We Can’t Stop video, playing a sexy and singing Michelle Bachmann and poking fun at the government shutdown.
However, she did not mention her recent scuffle with Sinead O’Connor, who made headlines on SNL in 1992 when she ripped up a photo of the pope.
“I don’t want my daughter acting like that but at the same time she’s an adult she’s got to make her own choices you know what I’m saying?” O’Connor said.
At the end of the night, Cyrus thanked her fans and the cast and crew of SNL.
“Thank you so much to SNL for having me this week. It’s been awesome. Goodnight everybody.”
Her new album Bangerz is in store on Tuesday.
