A home video of singer Miley Cyrus apparently using a bong to smoke the hallucinogenic herb salvia has hit the internet, capping a year which has seen the teen star throw aside her squeaky clean Disney image.

The video obtained by celebrity website was said to have been shot days after Cyrus turned 18 in November.

It shows the Hannah Montana star giggling and laughing after smoking from a bong.

TMZ said that sources close to Cyrus said the video as shot by one of the starlet's friends but that the substance was not marijuana.

"Is that me tripping?", Cyrus exclaims in the video, after using the bong and mistaking another person at the party for her ex-boyfriend, actor Liam Hemsworth.

The herb salvia divinorum has hallucinogenic properties but is not illegal in California. According to a 2007 US survey on drug use and health, about one million people had used it that year.

Publicists for Cyrus did not return requests for comment on Friday.

Cyrus, one of the world's best-known teen celebrities, has made strenuous efforts this year to distance herself from Hannah Montana that won her millions of "tween" fans.

In the last year she played a rebellious and sullen teen in the romantic movie The Last Song, stepped out publicly with co-star and boyfriend Hemsworth, released a series of raunchy pop music videos, and adopted figure-hugging stage outfits.

The new image has dismayed parents of some of the younger fans of Hannah Montana, whose final episode does not air until the spring of 2011.
