Miley Cyrus doubts she will be asked to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) next year.
The 'We Can't Stop' hitmaker, who was named the music channel's Artist of the Year this week, isn't convinced she will be invited back to the annual ceremony following her controversial performance at the event in August, during which she gyrated against Robin Thicke while wearing a nude-colored bikini.
The 21-year-old star told radio personality Sonic backstage at the Power 96.1 Jingle Ball in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday (12.11.13): "Everyone else's, I think, biggest moment of me was the VMAs. It was probably my biggest moment, too. I was pretty stoked to perform there."
She added: "I doubt they're ever gonna ask me back. But just kidding... I don't know."
Miley, who has confirmed she will perform live at Times Square on New Year's Eve, insisted she doesn't regret the provocative performance.
She explained: "That was before my record even came out, so I mean, it was the beginning of what I was showing people what I was gonna do.
"It kind of just opened so many doors for me to be like, alright, I already p***ed you off as much as I possibly can. So, now I can kind of just be freer and kind of do whatever it is that we want to do."
Miley also caused controversy at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam in November when lit up what appeared to be a cannabis joint on-stage before accepting her Best Video prize for 'Wrecking Ball'.

Olivia Wilde has abandoned her vegan lifestyle during her pregnancy.
The 29-year-old actress, who is expecting her first child with her fiance, Jason Sudeikis, has reintroduced animal products into her life after five years of following a plant-based diet.
Asked if she was sticking to vegan food during her pregnancy, the 'Her' star, who was named PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian celebrity in 2010, told E! News at the launch of Revlon's New Age Defying Collection in New York City on Wednesday (12.11.13): "No, I'm not."
However the brunette beauty insisted she still supports the idea and hinted she will return to being a vegan once she delivers her baby next year.
Olivia previously revealed she often found it challenging to be a vegan even though she had been a vegetarian for years.
Last year, she said: "I have been a vegetarian since I was like... 12. But [being vegan] has been something that, for the past four years, has at times been consistent, other times less so. It helps if you have the right support system."
She added: "[Being vegan] is not always easy and accessible. But it's a way of life and makes me as a person feel really good and physically look better."

Susan Sarandon got "stoned" before going to most award shows.
The Oscar-winning actress has revealed she enjoyed getting high on marijuana before "almost all" of the red carpet events and glitzy ceremonies she has attended in the past.
Asked to name a Hollywood event that she showed up to stoned, the 67-year-old star laughed and told 'Watch What Happens Live' with Andy Cohen on Wednesday (12.11.13): "Only one?"
She then added: "I would say almost all except the Oscars."
The 'Cloud Atlas' star has been nominated for an Oscar five times and also received eight Golden Globes and four Emmy nominations over the course of her 43-year career.
Susan split from Tim Robbins in 2009, with whom she has two sons, Jack, 24, and 21-year-old Miles, and admitted earlier this year that she was shocked when he ended their 23 year relationship.
The 'Stepmom' star previously said: "I didn't think it would ever happen. You need your girlfriends. You need to take long walks until you're exhausted and no longer crying out and you hold on until a new dawn."
Susan has since found love again with entrepreneur Jonathan Bricklin - who at 36 is three decades younger than her.

Ellen DeGeneres has hit back at reports her marriage is on the rocks.
The talk show host, 55, who tied the knot with 'Arrested Development' actress, Portia de Rossi, at their home in Beverly Hills in August 2008, has branded rumors they are about to split "ridiculous."
The comedian insisted she is "very happily married" after seeing a story in a magazine that claimed her relationship was crumbling, and joked on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' today (12.11.13): "I was like, 'Oh, what happened? They seemed so happy.' And then I was like, 'Wait, I'm Ellen.' And I should know if that was happening."
She added: "It's so ridiculous to me. There's not one ounce of truth to any of it. I'm very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. That is all. It really is true. And we argue if we'd let a kangaroo carry us around in its pouch for a year. I would. She wouldn't. She'll change her mind. Who wouldn't want to be in the pouch of a kangaroo for a year? Hopping around. And she's like 'no' but anyway."
Ellen also assured her viewers that they could trust her to share any important news about her life.
She said: "If there's anything you need to know, I'll announce it here first."

Lindsay Lohan allegedly apologized to Oprah Winfrey for being linked to an assault on Barron Hilton.
The 'Mean Girls' actress, who is starring in a documentary series that will air on the chat show queen's OWN channel early next year, reached out to assure Oprah that she had done nothing wrong after being accused by the hotel heir, who is Paris Hilton's younger brother, of ordering Ray LeMoine to attack him at a house party in Miami last Friday (12.06.13).
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com: "Oprah knows the truth about what happened and there are no problems between the two.
"Lindsay has tremendous respect for Oprah and she apologized to her for even having her name involved in incident."
Ray, who has fled to Cuba, previously insisted Lindsay, 27, had nothing to do with the confrontation.
He claimed he got into an altercation with Barron, who suffered lasting damage to his face, after the 24-year-old socialite refused to leave the house.
He said: "My friend's name was on the lease of this mansion and we didn't want anyone to trash it, so we started kicking people out.
"Eventually things got so heated that he (Barron) pushed me. And that's when the alleged assault, which of course I deny, took place."

Drew Barrymore has revealed she is expecting another baby girl.
The 'Whip It' actress, who already has a 14-month-old daughter, Olive, with her husband Will Kopelman, confirmed the gender of her unborn baby while accepting the 'Newcomer of the Year: Mass' award for her budget cosmetics brand, Flower, at the 2013 Beauty Inc. Awards, associated with the Women's Wear Daily special-issue magazine, in New York City today (12.11.13).
The 38-year-old star told the crowd: "Thank you to WWD Beauty Inc. for awarding Flower Beauty. I am so proud to accept this in celebration of women, including my daughter and my future daughter."
Drew, who is reportedly due to give birth in late April or early May, was joined by her husband at the event, as well as a number of her in-laws, including her father-in-law, Arie Kopelman, the former chairman of Chanel, who refers to the actress's second child as 'Chanel No. 5' because she will be the fifth grandchild in the family, according to UsMagazine.com.
The 'He's Just Not That Into You' star recently revealed that she hopes to have more than two children.
She said: "I'd love to have more kids. I think it's about being mentally healthier and then you are physically fit."

Demi Moore has sold her $250,000 engagement ring from Ashton Kutcher.
The 51-year-old actress sold the five-carat, emerald-cut diamond she was given by her ex-husband to a Beverly Hills high-end jeweler to help her get rid of any reminders of their romance.
A source told the new issue of America's Star magazine: "Ashton broke her heart. Anything that reminds her of him makes her sad, and she wants to be happy."
Ashton and Demi - who married on September 24, 2005 - split in November 2011 amid claims the 'No Strings Attached' star enjoyed a fling with student Sara Leal, 23, in San Diego on his sixth wedding anniversary but their divorce was only made official last month.
The 35-year-old actor filed for divorce in December 2012 but it dragged on because they were reportedly at odds over how to divide their assets and $300 million fortune.
Ashton has since been with his former 'That 70s Show' co-star Mila Kunis, 30, and the couple, who began dating in April 2012, have been inseparable since they got together.
'Ghost' star Demi has been married twice before. She wed Freddy Moore - 12 years her senior - in 1980 but by 1985 they were divorced. In 1987, she then tied the knot with Bruce Willis, with whom she has three daughters, Rumer, 25, Scout, 22, and Tallulah, 19, but they split in 1998, eventually divorcing in 2000.

Denise Richards has been cleared of abusing Charlie Sheen's sons.
The 42-year-old actress was investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) after the actor's ex-wife Brooke Myeller claimed she physically abused and neglected their four-year-old twin boys Bob and Max, as well as Denise's own children with Charlie, Sam, nine, Lola, eight, and her adopted daughter Eloise, two, but the agency have now concluded there is no case to answer.
A source told website RadarOnline.com: "Child welfare officers quickly established that there was no merit to Brooke's claims and found that no follow-up investigation would be necessary.
"The department, under California law, had to officially look into the claims. Denise was cooperative and had been scheduled to meet with DCFS for a follow-up meeting, but officials decided it simply wasn't necessary. It now won't be taking place. The case is closed."
This is said to be the second time Brooke has made such allegations as Denise, the former carer of the twins.
The source added: "Brooke had made the same abuse allegations against Denise during a contentious meeting between the two women with social workers last month.
"The department, at that time, also took no action against Denise because it was established that the claims were baseless."
Denise secured temporary custody of Bob and Max in May after Brooke was hospitalized for drug abuse but recently withdrew as their guardian because of their violent behavior towards her daughters and they are now living with Brooke's brother.

AN EVENING WITH YES
FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 2014
PROSPERA PLACE – KELOWNA, BC
TICKETS ON SALE MONDAY, DECEMBER 16 @ 10AM
The iconic and Grammy-winning rock band YES will bring their triple header concert tour to Canada, in March 2014, unveiling a true classic rock triple header by performing three of their classic albums in their entirety, all in one concert: 1971’s THE YES ALBUM, 1972’s CLOSE TO THE EDGE, and 1977’s GOING FOR THE ONE (track listing for all three albums listed below). Music audiences across Canada will experience the albums--each representing an important milestone in YES’ career which encompasses sales of close to 50 million albums worldwide--performed from beginning to end.
Chris Epting of Aol’s NOISECREEP.COM said: “Yes demonstrates why they remain one of the most vaunted and respected musical forces in progressive rock among both fans and players alike…Singer Jon Davison, now a year into his role as front man demonstrated from the outset that he is more than up to the task…At one time it was about exploration, experimentation and an elegant, seamless blending of many musical styles into one space-age storm that remains inspired, atmospheric and very hard to categorize. This was a feast for the followers; faithful renditions for the many die hard starship troopers that were no doubt reliving many scrapbook Yes memories over the years. But the show was not about mere nostalgia. This is a band that still feels strangely new, simply by doing what they do, pushing the boundaries and presenting songs that, like the wildly colorful and original Roger Dean artwork that represents them, are just beautifully designed and built to last.”
Moreover, YES is proud to provide special show packages, which include near-stage seating, a meet and greet with the band, exclusive limited-edition gifts from YES, and much more. For more information and to purchase YES packages, visit the below links.

Kim Kardashian donates 10 percent of all of her earnings to charity.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who is estimated to be worth $40 million, has hit back after being criticized for only giving a portion of the proceeds from her latest monthly eBay auction, of her old clothes and accessories, to the non-profit organization, International Medical Corps, to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
The 33-year-old beauty defended herself on her Celebuzz blog on Tuesday (12.10.13), writing: "I feel compelled to speak about something that is in my head and my heart. Being in the public eye, there are times I feel like I get criticized for any and everything I do.
"The problem comes in when I get attacked for giving and trying to help people. My dad always taught me the importance of giving back. I don't publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world. I do it because I want to.
"So for people to attack me for giving 10 percent of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts.
"I give 10 percent of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions."
The brunette beauty hopes people will realize that it is important to make donations, even if they are small.
She added: "I will continue to do what is in my heart and am happy to know many others have enjoyed purchasing from me, as they too are giving with me.
"Giving comes from the heart. We all need to be reminded of this as we celebrate the holiday season this year."

Madonna has split from her 25-year-old boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat.
The 'Girl Gone Wild' hitmaker, 55, who recently returned to New York City from a charity trip to Haiti with her ex-husband, Sean Penn, reportedly ended her three-year relationship with the backup dancer after he signed up for the French version of 'Dancing With The Stars."
A source told PerezHilton.com: "M thought that was too cheesy."
Another insider explained that the relationship ran its course due to long distance and work obligations, but said Madonna was left feeling "used" and insisted there was "no chance" of them reuniting in the future.
The former couple have only been spotted together a few times in recent months amid rumors Madonna could be set to reunite with Sean, whom she divorced in 1989 after four tumultuous years together.
The 'Hung Up' hitmaker took her 13-year-old son Rocco - whose father is her former spouse Guy Ritchie - to tour Haiti, which was left devastated by an earthquake three years ago, with the Oscar-winning actor last month to look at the work done by his Haitian Relief Organization,
The trip came shortly after the 'Milk' star described his ex-wife as "so hot" when he saw her in concert in Los Angeles in October.
An eyewitness said: "Their chemistry was off the charts. Madonna seemed to be performing entirely for Sean. And he was saying things like 'amazing' and 'she's so hot!' "

Adam Sandler has been named the most over-paid actor in Hollywood.
The 47-year-old comedian, whose recent films 'That's My Boy' and 'Jack & Jill' were labelled flops, is reportedly no longer popular at the box office despite earning huge pay checks to star in every film he makes.
According to Forbes magazine, Sandler's films returned an average of $3.40 for every $1 he was paid.
Katherine Heigl, 35, came in a close second on the list.
The former 'Greys Anatomy' star, who is trying to reignite her TV career by starring in a new NBC series about the CIA after her films 'Killers' and 'One For the Money' failed to wow audiences, returns an estimated $3.50 for every $1 she earns.
The '27 Dresses' actress also came second on the magazine's annual list last year behind Eddie Murphy.
Other stars that failed to lure audiences to cinemas in 2013 include Nicholas Cage, Reese Witherspoon, and Kevin James.
Jennifer Aniston, Denzel Washington, Steve Carell, Matt Damon and Ryan Reynolds are some of the more surprising actors on the list.

Kanye West reportedly kicked a fan out of his concert on Sunday (12.08.13) for heckling.
The 36-year-old rapper had a member of his security team remove a female from his gig in San Antonio, Texas, after she and a group of friends repeatedly screamed at him to take off his Maison Martin Margiela-created mask that covers his entire face.
The incident was caught on video and posted on Instagram by a fellow concert-goer, and the footage shows the 'Blood on the Leaves' hitmaker becoming increasingly irritated by the fan's demand as he approaches the crowd.
He said: "Now, you can see my face on the Internet, every motherf**king day. I came here, I open up a mountain...and you tryin' to tell me how to give you my art."
The rapper, who then performed a song explaining that he wears the mask so he doesn't have to worry about unflattering photographs, later gave his bodyguard a hand signal to have the woman thrown out of the show, before he ranted: "Do I look like a motherf**king comedian? Don't f**king heckle me. I'm Kanye motherf**king West. I'm dead f**king serious."
Kanye's reaction to the heckling came just days after his fiancee, Kim Kardashian, surprised one of her Twitter followers by inviting her and a friend to join the reality star in the VIP section for Kanye's concert in New Orleans on Thursday night (12.05.13).
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star sent her security to find the 19 year old fan after she tweeted: "I'm looking for Kim SO hard while we wait for Yeezy to come out. Wya sis? (sic)"
The 33-year-old beauty also brought them backstage to meet Kanye after his performance.

Julia Roberts is rumored to be pregnant.
The 46-year-old actress, who already has eight-year-old twins, Hazel and Finn, as well as a six-year-old son, Henry, with her husband of 11-years Danny Moder, sparked speculation she is expecting her fourth child after stepping out in Los Angeles with a noticeable bump concealed by a baggy sweater.
The 'August: Osage County' star was with her cameraman husband at his parents house at the time, according to gossip website TMZ.com.
The actress recently opened up about juggling her career and her children, and joked that her agent is worried she will soon become a full-time mother.
She said: "As my career is slowing down, he thought, I've got to figure this out before she brings it all to a screeching halt in favor of car pools."
The Oscar-winning actress also revealed that she has no problem waiting for the right role to come up.
She explained: "The things that are correct for me will come to me at the time that I am interested in them and have the capacity, the understanding, to do them.
"When I miss out on a part, I can be bummed I didn't get it, but then I see who got it, and I think, 'Oh, well.' "
Julia also previously said that she felt she had "earned" a break from Hollywood to start a family after almost two decades of acting.
She said: "I had been working for 18 years when I had Hazel and Finn almost nine years ago. So I felt like I earned that time in my house and in my kitchen and in bed all day with these two little people. I felt that was my present to myself."
She added: "I worked hard, and I was very devoted to that, and then I earned this jewel box of a life that I felt completely entitled to. It still is really important, but it has made me take more things into consideration."

Katy Perry doesn't believe in heaven and hell.
The 29-year-old star grew up in a deeply Christian household with evangelist preacher parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, but she admits she no longer identifies with a single religion, however, she does believe in a "higher power".
Katy explained: "I don't believe in a heaven or a hell, or an old man sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable.
"Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don't want to hear.
"I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time - for self-control, for humility. There's a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying 'thank you' sometimes is better than asking for things."
The 'Unconditionally' singer - whose previous hits include 'I Kissed a Girl' - also revealed she has a "great relationship" with her minister parents, despite their conservative values often being at odds with her raunchy pop career.
She told the new issue of US Marie Claire magazine: "People don't understand that I have a great relationship with my parents ... like, how that can exist. There isn't any judgement. They don't necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don't necessarily agree with everything they do. They're at peace with ... they pray for me is what they do. They're fascinated with the idea that they created someone who has this much attention on her."
