Quotes

In a statement, the commission said it took the action because Cyrus often "undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican Law"
They also criticised the " Wrecking Ball' singer's "unsuitable costumes" and condemned her use of "language and images which encourage sex and violence" and "inappropriate objects"."
"She said she 'hopes we are all drunk and on loads of pills', and at one point her dressers had to come on stage as her corset was undone while humping midgets."
...journalistic legion of the 1960s, especially the late Orlando Martínez and Gregorio García Castro, both victims of repression during the infamous "12 years' of the Balaguer presidency."
