Katy Perry Banned From China Ahead of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Excitement about this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is in full swing, especially now that the models have arrived in Shanghai. "While she initially was informed that she'd be able to gain access, the decision apparently was reversed after the government caught wind of a controversial incident from 2015, in which Perry wore a bright, glittery dress with sunflowers on it during a performance in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan", Page Six wrote. 'For every artist who wants to perform in China, officials comb through their social media and press reports to see if they have done anything deemed to be offensive to the country.

On Thursday, Gigi Hadid announced that she would be skipping this year's VS Fashion Show, writing on Twitter that she's "so bummed".

There's no word yet on why exactly Hadid won't be walking, but she isn't the only model who has had to drop out at the last minute. We have more models than ever before - 55 representing 17 countries, and four world-class entertainers'. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter". Chinese social-media users warned her not to come to Shanghai, calling her racist.

Alongside Gigi Hadid, some other big names of Victoria's Secret have been denied Chinese visa.


Representatives for Perry and Victoria's Secret didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment regarding this situation.

Plus, on Tuesday, Fashionista reported that Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, and Irina Sharipova of Russian Federation and Dasha Khlystun of Ukraine have all been denied visas to travel to China. Boybander Harry Styles will be performing. Page Six has also reported that Adriana Lima's visa has been delayed due to some diplomatic problem.


Page Six earlier reported that not only the VS models but also the fashion bloggers are also cancelling their trips.
