The 20-year-old claims the account where it was posted was fake, defending the vague photo.
"I don't have an Instagram," she tweeted to followers.
Interesting. No Instagram, sure, but Miley is that you girl?

A few hours later Miley added: "I never said anything except I don't have an Instagram".
Uh-oh! Is she trying to get busted?
The photo does look a lot like ol' Miles. The image was posted under the screen name "mileyxxcyrus" and accompanied by the caption "High a f---". Good gravy, let's hope not!
Miley has gone through quite the transformation the last few years, from nice country gal to bad girl beauty, but maybe this bad girl has gone a little too far.
Cheeky miss Miley has been in green-related trouble before over her controversial 19th birthday video in which she was presented a Bob Marley cake and exclaimed, "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much f---ing weed".
Good point, Kelly! However we're not so sure Miley's got too much time for your words of wisdom. After all, the former Disney star ‘Can't Be Tamed’.
