Miley Cyrus has done it again. You would think the girl would realize that everything she says is fodder for the press, so why would you make a questionable comment as she did at her very public birthday party at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles.

You know you smoke way too much f***in’ weed.” Friend, Kelly Osbourne, standing right next to her, said “I thought salvia was your problem.” Now Kelly is tweeting that what Miley said was just a joke. Really. Are we that stupid?
