Miley Cyrus isn't backing down from her often eyebrow-raising onstage antics.
After a government-run group banned the 21-year-old pop star from performing a scheduled show in the capital of Santo Domingo on Sept. 13, which would have marked her first concert in the Dominican Republic, a source tells E! exclusively that Miley is taking a stand against the ban after her performance was prohibited.
We're told that a legal challenge has been filed by the tour's promotor in the Dominican Republic to remove the ban. The filing argues that an administrative decision made to ban artistic expression is in violation of the Dominican Republic constitution.
"Miley wants to defend artistic expression for all artists," the source said.
