Singer and songwriter, Justin Bieber, has been banned from performing in the China for bad behaviour.
Beijing’s Municipal Bureau of Culture said in a statement posted on its website: “Bieber’s lifestyle overseas and his words and actions when he last performed in China had generated public dissatisfaction.
“Given efforts to purify the performing arts environment in China, it was not appropriate to bring in artists with bad behavior. We hope Justin Bieber will continue to improve his behavior as part of his growth, and become a singer truly loved by the public.”
Bieber performed in China as part of his Believe tour, in 2013, raising concerns when he was photographed being carried up the Great Wall of China by his bodyguards.
The Canadian pop star is due to perform in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore in September and October, according to his website.
The 23-year-old joins a list of musicians like Lady Gaga, Bjork and Bon Jovi who have been banned from performing in China.
