Controversial pop star Miley Cyrus spent three hours with pals at a cannabis cafe in the Netherlands on Thursday (07Nov13).

The Can't Be Tamed hitmaker is in the country ahead of her performance at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam on Sunday (10Nov13) and she has been enjoying the city's laidback vibe during her trip.

She headed to a popular coffee shop - where marijuana can be legally purchased - with DJ Afrojack, and the pair spent three hours inside before heading back to their hotel. They had earlier sampled Amsterdam's famous sweet pancakes at a nearby eaterie.

The former Hannah Montana star has been a constant presence in headlines over recent months following a series of outrageous, provocative stage routines, but she seemed determined to keep her coffee shop visit low-key by heading to the Greenhouse venue situated in an out-of-the-way location in the south of the city, away from the thriving centre.
