The 'We Can't Stop' singer also performs two tracks and puts an end to her Hannah Montana alter ego.

Miley Cyrus addressed the controversy surrounding her MTV VMAs performance as she hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend.

The 'Wrecking Ball' singer spoke in detail about the event during her opening monologue and it also popped up in several sketches during the show.

The US star refused to apologise for any controversy caused for her performance at the event in August and joked at her own attire.

"If I owe anyone an apology, it's the people who make the bottom halves of shirts," she said.

There were no references in the show to her recent war of words with Irish star Sinead O'Connor or her recent split from ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth as she kept clear of further controversial moments.

The opening skit saw the cast in the future, where America no longer existed, and addressed the events which caused its demise.

They poked fun at the VMAs performance again with an old Miley trying to warn new Miley that the performance shouldn't go ahead.

Other moments included aliens abducting cheerleaders during a special sketch reprising Miley's '23' video style and Miley putting an end to her Hannah Montana alter-ego by declaring she was "dead".
