Miley Cyrus gig banned in Dominican Republic over morals

Article By: news

Miley Cyrus has been banned from performing in the capital of Dominican Republic after the government decides to cancel her show.

The show was scheduled to take place in Santo Domingo on 13 September.

Authorities say they stopped the gig because she "undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law".

The Dominican Republic government commission, reportedly,  has previously banned songs from being played on the radio which it thinks are vulgar.

Neither Cyrus, nor concert organisers, have yet commented on the cancellation.

She is expected to appear at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, although is not set to perform.

At last year's event she drew headlines after twerking alongside singer Robin Thicke during a duet of Blurred Lines.
