Pop star Miley Cyrus has posed as a stripper with a fistful of dollar bills shoved down her denim shorts.

The Wrecking Ball hitmaker, who has been criticised for her saucy onstage behaviour in recent months, posted the money-stuffing picture to her Instagram.com page on Thursday (20Mar14) while in Florida on her Bangerz tour.

The picture was posted shortly after she shocked fans by sharing a snap of herself posing on a sun lounger in a bikini. The singer's buttocks were exposed so a bruise was clearly visible and she added, "Yasss (yes) that's a bruise on my a**sss."

She also revealed a nasty sunburn by posting a topless picture on Twitter.com, adding, "Quick (costume) change (at the concert) today is gonna be a realllllllllll (real) b***h."
