China has revealed that Justin Bieber is banned from the country for bad behavior.

The announcement came on Tuesday when the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture responded to a post on it's website in which a member of the public queried why the iconic singer was not allowed to perform in China.

"Please give a detailed explanation of why Justin Bieber is not allowed to come to China! He has won many major awards, which demonstrates his extraordinary talents. Why aren't mainland fans given the right to enjoy his performance?" the post queried, according to Variety.

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture replied, stating that, while Bieber was a gifted singer, he was also a controversial public figure.

"In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers. We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public."

The duration of the ban has not yet been confirmed.

"A woman with the surname Yan who works at the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture said that she was not aware of the ban and did not have any further details," The New York Times reported.

While the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture post didn't detail Bieber's behavior, the singer has drawn criticism during previous international trips, including a 2014 visit to the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, which outraged Chinese, and images in 2013 of the singer being carried up the Great Wall of China and skateboarding in Beijing, the Times noted.

It is not uncommon for China to ban artists from performing and has also been known to censor touring bands and pop stars.

"Foreign musicians performing in China are subject to censorship, and must be first vetted by the Ministry of Culture," CNN reported. "Artists are sometimes banned from performing certain songs, or forced to alter their lyrics. Musicians can be blacklisted outright if the government deems their acts to be too sensitive."
