AMSTERDAM (AP) Did you really think Miley Cyrus would tone it down for an MTV event in Amsterdam? She twerked with a dwarf and smoked a joint onstage at the MTV European Music Awards yesterday. Cyrus opened the show performing ``We Can't Stop'' in a space suit, then exchanged spankings with the dwarf and danced with people in extraterrestrial costumes. She later did ``Wrecking Ball'' in front of a giant screen showing herself crying. When she won best video for ``Wrecking Ball,'' she lit up onstage. Other winners include Bruno Mars for best song for ``Locked Out Of Heaven'' and Eminem for best hip hop and for Global Icon. Katy Perry spit out champagne when she won for best female artist
