USA: MTV censored lyrics with reference to drugs
At the 2013 Video Music Awards, the American music television channel MTV censored Miley Cyrus’s VMA performance and edited out the entire line where she sings “dancing with Molly.”
The line in the song ‘We Can’t Stop’ is known to be a reference to the powdered form of the drug MDMA. For radio airplay, the producers have converted it to “dancing with Miley”.
