In a statement posted on its website this week, Beijing’s culture bureau explained that unspecified misdemeanours meant the artist, who has had repeated run-ins with the law – including for drunken drag racing in a yellow Lamborghini – was unsuitable for Chinese ears.

The statement read;

‘Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer.

‘As far as we are concerned, he has engaged in a series of bad behaviours, both in his social life and during a previous performance in China, which caused discontent among the public.’

The bureau however failed to detail which incidents they were referring to.
