Miley reveals that Hannah Montana was murdered

Los Angeles - 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, 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."

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." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
