The Dominican Republic has banned Miley Cyrus performing a gig on the island on "morality grounds".
Cyrus' raunchy on-stage antics- including twerking and crotch grabbing- were deemed "acts that go against morals and customs".
And under Dominican law the singer could be criminally punished, the government said.
Cyrus was due to perform there on September 13 but the gig has now been cancelled.
A representative for Cyrus did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Concert organisers in the Dominican Republic also made no comment on the ban.
It is not the first time the Dominican Republic has banned songs it considers vulgar from the airwaves, including some by Calle 13 of Puerto Rico.
