Melbourne, March 30: American pop and R and B quintet girls group the Pussycat Dolls has been fined USD 3400 for displaying much more than their singing talent during a concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, last July.

The group caused quite a stir with a few wardrobe malfunctions, which started off with Carmit Bachar exposing a breast, and Ashley Roberts revealing her private parts after her tiny pair of shorts left little to the imagination.

Absolute Entertainment who were the Promoters for the concert were fined for allowing the group to perform sexually suggestive routines in the strict Muslim country.

The council, which manages the Kuala Lumpur suburb where the event took place, imposed the penalty.

The band was slapped with fine after Malaysia's culture minister Rais Yatim complained that the group's concert featured 'scantily dressed performers' and 'sensuous elements'.

"I believe the way the Pussycat Dolls behaved on stage amounted to gross indecency," News.com.au quoted Yatim, as saying.

According to the country's Muslim laws, a female performer must be dressed from her shoulders to her knees.

Besides this, jumping, shouting or throwing of objects onstage or at the audience are all also banned.
