Miley Cyrus already went unplugged, but now she's gone uncensored.

An uncut version of the Bangerz singer's MTV Unplugged session, which aired last week and featured Madonna as a special guest, was released on Thursday via MTV's digital and mobile platforms -- a first for the network's acoustic performance series.
