She’s certainly no stranger to controversy, but that didn’t stop Miley Cyrus from poking fun at a host of other celebrities currently dominating the headlines.

The former Disney queen hosted famed comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live (SNL) recently, and drew laughs as she parodied her good friend and fellow teen idol Justin Bieber and troubled actor Lindsay Lohan.

Miley appeared dressed as Bieber in one sketch. She wore a purple hoodie jumper and a wig of the singer’s famous haircut. The 18-year-old proved that she can also laugh at herself with the skit, set in one of the show’s regular segments, The Miley Cyrus Show. SNL cast member Vanessa Bayer regularly spoofs the Hannah Montana star with an exaggerated take on Miley’s nasal accent and with a fondness for the words ‘like’ and ‘y’all.’ Cyrus told reporters after the taping that she had watched several TV interviews of Bieber to mimic his crotch-grabbing and confident swagger for the show. The Party In The USA singer played it cool as Bayer made fun of her as a parody of herself. An over-excited fake Miley asked the singer, playing Bieber: ‘Justin Bieber, I want to ask you some things. Like, what is your favourite album, and what is Canada like, and do you speak Canadian, and does Usher have to seat people at his own concert because he’s an Usher, and do you really never say never, and have you gone through puberty? ‘Fake Justin replied: ‘All I have to say that is, uh, wink,’ winking and smiling at the camera.

Miley also spoofed Lindsay Lohan in another scene, by wearing a long blonde wig, like that of LiLo. When asked on how she was doing, she replied: ‘Things are great, my new movie Herbie opened 68 months ago, and LA court house just gave me my own parking spot. Winning! Duh!’
