Miley Cyrus -- as Justin Bieber -- says salvia is LEGAL on SNL’s ‘The Miley Cyrus Show’

Miley Cyrus let herself be spoofed on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this past weekend on the recurring ‘The Miley Cyrus Show’ sketch -- but she posed as Justin Bieber while doing it.
Cyrus, who hosted the variety show Saturday by singing her monologue and pretending to be Lindsay Lohan, let the writers poke fun at her in stride as they took on her semi-nude Annie Leibovitz photos, Disney grooming roots and that bong-smoking scandal.
‘She was up for anything,’ cast member Kristen Wiig told MTV News. ‘That’s always, to me, what makes a host fun to have around. They’ll make fun of themselves or how the media perceives them. She was up for anything, which was so great.’
But Lohan didn’t seem to think so. The embattled actress even wrote a letter to ‘SNL’ creator Lorne Michaels because she was upset the show allowed Cyrus to tease her. (What a poor sport. Can’t one child star make fun of another?)
The highlight, however, was Cyrus dressed up as an eye-shadow-wearing Bieber on ‘The Miley Cyrus Show’ segment opposite Vanessa Bayer.
‘It’s a Mexican standoff if the Mexicans were tiny, talented geniuses,’ Jason Sudeikis said in character as always-doting daddy Billy Ray Cyrus.
Bayer, an ‘SNL’ newbie, all-too-convincingly mimicked Cyrus’ toothy smile and loud, nasal voice to blood-curdling annoyance levels. And Cyrus effectively parodied Bieber’s hair flips, crotch grabs and ultra-laid-back interview style.
Here’s some of what they did (CAPS added for blood-curdling emphasis):
Fake Miley: WAIT A MINUTE, JUSTIN BIEBER, DID YOU CUT YOUR HAIR?
Real Miley as the Biebs: Yeah, you know, it’s an image change. I also do the middle finger now.
Fake Miley: SO YOU’RE GROWING UP. LIKE ME ... DOING SALVIA! DID YOU KNOW I SMOKED SALVIA?
Real Miley as the Biebs: You know, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t. Because it’s TOTALLY LEGAL, YO!
Point made, Miley. Point made.
