MILEY Cyrus poked fun at the 'Hannah Montana' show while hosting 'Saturday Night Live'.
The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker, whose recent comments about Amanda Bynes' mental illness and raunchy 'twerking' performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards caused global controversy, bluntly confirmed she has put her former Disney alter ego well and truly behind her, as she explained why she wouldn't be reprising the role that kickstarted her career for a sketch.
During her opening monologue on Saturday night (05.10.13), the 20-year-old star said: "There's a few subjects we're not going to get into tonight. I'm not going to do 'Hannah Montana', but I can give you an update on what she's been up to -- she's been murdered."
The 'We Can't Stop' singer also refused to twerk, saying: "There will be no twerking tonight. I used to think twerking was cool, but now that white people do it its lame."
Miley joked about her controversial MTV VMA performance and claimed she got phone calls from both "angry mothers" and "turned on fathers".
She added: "I don't apologise for my VMA performance. If I owe anybody an apology it's the people who make the bottom half of shirts."
Miley then hit back at her detractors by launching into a skit which poked fun at the controversy over her raunchy VMAs appearance, blaming it on the destruction of America.
The sketch opened in a post-apocalyptic America, where two survivors revealed it was Miley's performance which caused the ruination of America.
The sketch ended with the joke, "That was how America ended, Canada did well though, it turns out Prime Minister Bieber was a fair and generous ruler."
Miley dresses up as Hilary Clinton, announcing her plan to run in 2016 by stripping off her jacket to reveal a bandage bra with the words 2016.
Miley later performed Wrecking Ball wearing a see through jersey under which her black underwear was clearly visible.
The young starlet, who almost bared all in a risky photo shoot last week, recently insisted she had no regrets about her new image.
She said: "I was born to become who I am right now ... I'm at a point in my career where I can be exactly what I want to be, who I want to be.
"I have this freedom to do whatever I want, because I'm starting as a new artist now.
"Every time I do anything, I want to remember, this is what separates me from everybody else."
