“The twerking acts of Miley Cyrus are against moral values”, said the Dominican Republic government commission and it is the real cause behind the government's ban of her September 13th concert in country's capital.
Miley Cyrus won't be able to perform in the capital of the Dominican Republic as a government commission that looks into the affairs of public performances has banned her upcoming concert due to her twerking acts.

The government commission of the Dominican Republic issued a statement on Thursday that the September 13th concert of Miley Cyrus had been banned because she “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law,” as reported by NYPost.
Previously, the Dominican Republic government commission had already banned vulgar songs from being played on the radio that include some of those by the Puerto Rico's Calle 13 band.
Actually the commission officers find some onstage acts of Miley Cyrus including twerking and crotch-grabbing as quite vulgar.
But it will be bad news for all those who have already bought tickets to see Miley Cyrus on stage. The tickets of this concert have been on sale since July at prices ranging from $27 to $370.
But the representatives of both Miley Cyrus and the organizers have not yet commented on the ban.
Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus has also confirmed that she will attend the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 24th. Cyrus' Official Miley Team posted a tweet on their twitter account that was also retweeted by MTV's official twitter handle.

But the 21-year singer is not performing at the VMAs. She will only attend the event because her big hit, "Wrecking Ball," has been nominated for the Video of the Year Award.
According to US Weekly, "Unlike last year, Cyrus, 21, will not be performing at the star-studded awards show. Fans, critics, and stars alike were shocked, to say the least, after the singer gyrated onstage with a giant foam finger and twerked up on Robin Thicke during their memorable medley duet last August."
Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Iggy Azalea, and many more will perform on stage this Sunday night at the 2014 MTV VMAs. Beyonce’s songs have got eight nominations this year.
