She recently took to Instagram to share a snap of herself posing with a rather massive derrière.
But on Friday, Miley Cyrus posted a new picture of her in the nude sporting a mysterious arm injury.
The 21-year-old singer captioned the image of her bruised and bloodied elbow, with the caption: ‘busted ass naked’.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday she appeared to post another jab at Nicki Minaj, who the former country crooner made fun of in August when she posted a spoof on the Starships singer’s Anaconda cover.
Miley shared the ridiculous picture with her nearly 12.4m followers and beside it she wrote: ‘A** so fat need a lap dance.’
Her caption are the lyrics from a 2011 single titled Lap Dance by rapper Tyga, who happens to be on the same Young Money Entertainment record label as Nicki.
In the image, Miley is doing her signature tongue out pose as she takes a selfie in the mirror.
Other than the super-imposed butt, the Party In The USA hit maker seems to be wearing nothing but a bra and pair of sunglasses over her short blonde locks.
Last month, Miley posted a photo of her head Photoshopped on the racy single cover art of Nicki’s latest single Anaconda.
The rapper and singer re-posted the original image to her 8.2m Instagram followers and the caption: ‘Give me one good reason why Miley made this her twitter avi. #AnacondaOniTunes.’
However, this did not stop Miley from doing it again as she posted a similar image, but this time with ‘Hannahconda’ emblazoned across it in reference to the young starlet’s role on Disney Channel show Hannah Montana.
Nicki once again re-posted the shot with the caption: ‘No chill ZONE!!!’ Basically meaning that the artist was none too pleased with Miley’s head being placed on her curvaceous figure once again.
Miley has not been shy to show off her admiration for rather large posteriors as she famously put her head up against the backside of her 6feet7 gal pal known as Amazon Ashley during her infamous performance at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.
The Wrecking Ball singer also posted several snaps from late Wednesday night to early Thursday morning of her background dancers including Ashley.

“She helped raise us and was often the one to discipline us,” the brunette said of her older sis, Khloé.

Miley Cyrus recently posted a photo on Instagram and Twitter of a new marijuana bong she designed with ornaments given to her as gifts during her Bangerz Tour, sparking online controversy among parents of her fans.
Last week she posted a picture of her new pet piglet “Bubba Sue” on her Twitter and Instagram pages–some of her followers were left wondering if she was lonely and decided to get her new companion.

The FCC is investigating the Bangerz Tour special that was aired on NBC earlier this summer after viewers complained about Miley Cyrus’ “unusual” behavior.
Dancing in “stripper costumes” and “rolling around in bed with half naked men and women” were among the most frequent complaints, Sugar Scape reports.
Miley Cyrus posted a racy photo of herself nude on Twitter and Instagram, where she flaunts her thin figure, finally putting an end to rumors that she is pregnant.
She is allegedly back in the recording studio to work on new tracks, Perez Hilton reports, sparking rumors among her Twitter and Instagram fans that one of her songs may be about her handling of rumors she was pregnant following her break up with Liam Hemsworth.
“On my last record, everything we did was with computers. But they’re real musicians – they can change keys on a whim,” she said, according to the site.
“I’ve never seen anything like it. They’ve had me on this journey that’s greater than anything I’ve been on. It’s really deep.”
She claims she “ran out of time getting zipped up” into her dress for the opening performance on Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards, but sources who saw Nicki Minaj in rehearsal told TMZ.com yesterday that the wardrobe malfunction was staged. The rapper, according to the sources, rehearsed with the dress unzipped – trying to ensure that nothing scandalous would be exposed.
Minaj, however, has said she didn’t have enough time for a costume change after performing Anaconda and before joining Jessie J and Ariana Grande for Bang Bang.
So she held the dress closed. Gary Hood, the stage manager for the VMAs, backed up her story.
“Actually, the same thing happened in the dress (during rehearsals),” he told KISS-FM on Monday. “I mean, each of the performers had about two minutes. . . . There just wasn’t enough time for her.”

Ciara Gets Help From Kim Kardashian With Baby Future During Heartbreaking Split
Hearing that Ciara and Future may have split just 3 months after they welcomed a baby together is so sad.
It has been reported that Ciara found the strength to leave Future after hearing that he cheated on her, breaking off their engagement completely. Now, she has friends like Kim Kardashian to help her get through being a single mom.
A source close to Ciara has told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kim has “offered to take little Future for a few hours if Ciara ever needed that while she cope with this heartbreak. Just to hear Kim say that has been making Ciara feel better.”
Not only that, but Kim is continuously checking on her friend and hoping to help her in any way possible. In fact, Kim was one of the first people to know that Ciara had called off her engagement, says our source.
Take Our Poll
“Kim has been there and has been in constant contact with Ciara for the past few weeks. She was one of the first to know. Ciara didn’t want to burden her but she and Kim are best of judy’s and Kim was all ears.”
Wow. We knew that Ciara and Kim were friends, but it sounds like they share a bond that is more like sisters, doesn’t it?
It’s incredible to hear that Kim is so willing to help her friend in a time of need, especially when it comes to her newborn son, Future.
However, our source also shared that Ciara is extremely private – and she hates feeling like she is a burden on anyone, especially her loved ones.
Right now, baby Future is Ciara’s main priority. He is all that matters to the first-time mom, so she is putting him above any and all drama with his daddy.
Sending lots of positive vibes to Ciara and baby Future during this difficult time.

When pop princess Miley Cyrus brings her controversial “Bangerz” tour to Consol Energy Center on Aug. 4, concertgoers will see a very different performer than the “Hannah Montana” show in 2008 at Mellon Arena.
At that last concert, Cyrus, now 21, still donned her squeaky-clean image from the Disney show that ran from 2006 to 2011 and performed mostly for tween-age girls, who filled the arena with high-pitched, piercing screams as they watched their idol on stage.
Now, after a few years of dramatic persona change – as Cyrus walks the often-rocky road from child to adult stardom – the singer is bringing to Pittsburgh the tour many parents are pushing to shut down.
According to MusicFix, Cyrus’ management has been inundated with complaints about the performance, which they say is too racy for young audiences. Some of Cyrus’ concert antics, according to published reports, have included straddling a flying hot dog, stuffing a thong in her mouth and simulating sex acts. Critics have called the live show loud and lewd, but laudable, fun, campy and surreal.
Love her or hate her, then or now, Cyrus’ colorful life and career still attracts and retains millions of fans around the world.
Cyrus was just 14 when she debuted on Disney’s “Hannah Montana.”
As the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus (of “Achy Breaky Heart” fame), she was familiar with fame. But little could have prepared her for the adulation of her young fans.
On the show, she starred as a teen pop star who used a disguise onstage so she could have a normal teenage life off the stage. Her dad co-starred as her father.
The show was four times nominated for an Emmy for outstanding children’s programming. Cyrus sang on the show, including some of her own songs. She released five soundtrack albums under the name “Hannah Montana,” all of which went to No. 1 on the U.S. charts. The show spawned a theatrical release, “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” and a 3D tour film, “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert,” both of which achieved overwhelming commercial success.
Cyrus started recording under her own name in 2007 with “Meet Miley Cyrus,” but it was 2010′s “Can’t Be Tamed” that started to show a more grown-up and risque style.
She has reportedly told her godmother Dolly Parton that she needed “to murder Hannah Montana” to get on with her career, and Cyrus told the “Saturday Night Live” audience last year that Montana had been “murdered.”
Cyrus’ latest album “Bangerz,” which includes the hit singles “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop,” has done very well, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.
“Wrecking Ball” became Cyrus’ first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 and her fastest-rising Top 10 hit. U.S. Weekly called “Bangerz” “the year’s most titillating pop explosion” when the album came out in October 2013.
Several shows on the U.S. leg of the “Bangerz” tour were postponed this spring after Cyrus reportedly had a bad reaction to an antibiotic used to treat a sinus infection. She resumed the show in May in Europe. The Pittsburgh show was added when the original dates were rescheduled for August.
Twerking and tongues
Cyrus’ high-profile evolution from strait-laced, long-haired Hannah Montana to short-haired seductress largely began six years ago in a controversial cover photo for Vanity Fair, where she was wearing only a loosely draped sheet.
If we weren’t already convinced her teeny-bopper image was dead, she made it painfully clear at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Her appearance started with her cavorting and twerking with dancing bears as she sang “We Can’t Stop,” and then grinding against Robin Thicke and a foam finger as he sang “Blurred Lines,” all this with her tongue hanging lasciviously from her mouth.
She followed that up with the video for “Wrecking Ball,” which featured her naked on a wrecking ball and licking a sledgehammer with that infamous tongue. The video had a record 19.3 million views in 24 hours.
Cyrus also hasn’t been shy about her expressing her love of marijuana. Last year, she told Rolling Stone magazine, “I think weed is the best drug on Earth. One time, I smoked a joint with peyote in it, and I saw a wolf howling at the moon. Hollywood is a coke town, but weed is so much better. And molly, too. Those are happy drugs – social drugs.”
Cyrus was famously engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth (“The Hunger Games”) until last fall. The two had been together for almost four years after meeting on the set of the 2010 movie “The Last Song.”
Many have rumored that the song “Wrecking Ball” is directed at Hemsworth, and Cyrus went on an expletive-laden rant that was seemingly directed at her ex during an early stop on the “Bangerz” tour. But Cyrus has denied Hemsworth was the target of her ire.
Early in her Disney career, she also was linked to Nick Jonas.
