They want to ban her, but she isn’t taking it lying down (or twerking, for that matter).


In August, the country’s Comisión Nacional de Espectáculos Públicos y Radiofonía (CNEPR) barred Cyrus from performing in Santo Domingo on September 13, which would have been the pop star’s first gig in the Dominican Republic.

Apparently, the sexually suggestive choreography and aggressive twerking was viewed as a threat to the Latin American nation.

Dominican Today adds:

“As well as performance with inappropriate dress, corruption of language, images and perverse phrases, phrases with double meaning, apology for crime, violence and acts that degrade civic culture, incitement to sex, lesbian sex and use of inappropriate objects in public, acts that offend personal safety and violate the rights of children and adolescents, there are many reasons put forward by the CNEPR through its president JM Hidalgo,” said the communiqué.[su_sky_ad]

    Lets see if I got this right. The Dominican doesn’t want Miley to visit because she’s obscene, but they are OK with this guy (and his 90 doses of Viagra)
