Miley Cyrus Banned From Dominican Republic for 'Promoting Lesbian Sex'

Miley

The National Commission for Public Performances in the Dominican Republic announced yesterday that they would be banning a Miley Cyrus concert next month on morality grounds.

Blabbeando reports:

"The National Commission for Public Performances in the exercise of the powers given by the Constitution of the Republic through Regulation 824 of Law Number 1951Article 4306 - the purpose of which is to prevent public performances that offend the morals, good customs and relationship between friendly countries - imposes this ban based on Miley Cyrus' common engagement in acts during her concerts that defy morals and customs in ways usually penalized by Dominican law," a statement reads.

They add that Cyrus "uses inadequate attire, corrupts language, uses perverse imagery and phrasing, uses phrases with double meanings, glorifies crime, violence and denigrating acts against civility and promotes sex, lesbian sex and the use of inadequate objects in public."

Although homosexuality is not illegal in the Dominican Republic, the country is culturally conservative and overwhelmingly Catholic. 

Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez, a Catholic Cardinal from the Carribean nation who has previously referred to openly gay U.S. Ambassador James “Wally” Brewster as a maricón (Spanish slur for “faggot”), has repeatedly voiced his opposition to gay rights and gay people in general.


Teen Becomes Instagram Sensation Cross-Dressing As Celebrities - PHOTOS

Nailed_it

Seventeen-year-old Liam Martin (aka waverider_) has amassed over 1,559,656 Instagram followers over the last eight months and has appeared on the Today show and ABC News websites by posting low-fi recreations of celebrity photographs.

He has mimicked Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and even Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games. Some of the celebrities have followed and complimented his work, and he uses his platform to discourage cyberbullying and encourage people to be more creative.

Yahoo shares more about the young mimic:

Make no mistake, a lot of time, energy — and money! — goes into each one of Martin's photos. He posts a new picture pretty much weekly and it takes that much time to execute his vision as far as coming up with a subject and buying the supplies. The teen estimates that he spends about $45 on props for each shoot, which take place at his family home "against one wall we use all the time."

The hardest one to recreate so far? "The Katy Perry photo from her 'Dark Horse' music video. It took me three hours" to get just right. The headpiece was made out of "M&Ms and string," he reveals. The shirt? It featured hand-cut pieces of paper attached to the nude-colored top. Fortunately, all his hard work paid off — the photo has 439,000 likes

"My mom and my nana were helping me with that one and it took hours," Martin recalls, adding that he often leans on them for assistance. "Most of the time my mom helps me get dressed up and she'll take the photo for me. If my [extended] family is over, my nana and my pops — my grandpa — will help me. The whole family loves it too. It's now become normal for them."

Miley Cyrus Makes Date Rape Joke At London Gay Nightclub: VIDEO

Miley

During her performance at the London nightclub G-A-Y this last Friday, shock-rocker Miley Cyrus made a joke about gays and date rape:

“You know, everyone’s a little bit gay… It’s the truth. Everyone says everyone’s gay, all it takes is one cocktail… And if that doesn’t work, sprinkle something in their drink. That’s what I always do.”

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Considering that she manhandled a female little person and pretended to suck on a giant inflatable dong during the show, her date rape joke might have been the least offensive thing.

Daily Dot writer Celeste Mora called Cyrus’ joke ”tasteless and hurtful” adding:

Miley probably doesn’t know this, but a recent review of US studies conducted between 1989 and 2009 found that 43 percent of lesbian, gay, and bi-identified women reported some kind of sexual assault in their lifetime, and 30 percent of gay or bi-identified men. And a review of trans studies in the US showed that half of trans-identified people have been sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

Cyrus has previously shown appreciation for her gay fans by getting a small marriage equality tattoo on her finger and condemning Rick Santorum’s anti-gay politics.
