Miley Cyrus has been banned in the Dominican Republic.
Her planned gig on September 13 in Santo Domingo has been canceled.
Officials released a statement saying that they fear Cyrus will perform "acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law."
Those "acts" include things like wearing "unsuitable costumes" and using "language and images which encourage sex and violence" and "inappropriate objects."
So a typical Miley show, essentially!
What do you think of Miley's gig being nixed on morality grounds? Not every country has the same freedom of speech and the arts as the U.S., mind you.
