Miley Cyrus was set to take the stage in the Dominican Republic on September 13, but a government commission forbids the singer to perform. The “Wrecking Ball” crooner, known for her controversial outfits and dance routines, goes against the country’s “morals and customs.”
“[Miley] undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law,” they said.
Tickets have been on sale since July, ranging from $27-$370. The queen of twerk is currently on break, but will resume her “Bangerz” tour in Puerto Rico on September 11.
It was recently announced Cyrus will be allowed to return to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, after last year’s raunchy performance with Robin Thicke. Her music video for “Wrecking Ball” was nominated for Video of the Year.
Best of luck to her!
The former Disney star came under fire after her fourth of July NBC special, “Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour,” which included performances from Lisbon and Barcelona. The acts were filled with typical Miley antics, but one subject that drew complaints was a sexualized performance with a man dressed as Abraham Lincoln.
The special sparked an FCC investigation into NBC.
“She was dressed more in line with a video geared towards MTV,” the complaint reads. “Her performance was impropriate [sic] for broadcast TV, as she grinded along there was a costumed performer depicting President Lincoln following behind her and alongside her and the character acted quite lecherous even patting her on the backside. Very patriotic for the 4th ya think?”
Cyrus made headlines last week after allegedly angering staff at the Greenwich Hotel in New York.
“It was like a tornado hit the lobby,” a source told Life & Style. Miley and her posse took over, screaming and carrying on so much that management received a number of complaints.
“Led by Miley, someone in the group was smoking pot, and they were swearing loudly and throwing themselves all over the expensive furniture.”
When asked to tone things down, Cyrus said she’s spent so much money there that they should be glad to have her.”
