Miley Cyrus Is Too Raunchy For the Dominican Republic

No twerking in the DR.

Clearly, not everyone is okay with Miley Cyrus' new moves. A government-run group in the Domican Republic fought—and won—to have the singer's concert cancelled due to her provocative lyrics and dance moves. According to local newspaper, Hoy, the group claimed that the show features "acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law."

Sure, Cyrus' antics have raised some eyebrows as of late, but no one has taken measures this drastic to keep the popstar from performing for her fans. Seems like a bit of an overreaction—is Miley's twerking far raunchier than what's sure to go down in nightclubs over spring break?
