  • Touchy subject Perry meanwhile was supposedly banned because she wore a Taiwanese flag during a 2015 concert in Taipei

There may be no Gigi Hadid or Katy Perry, but Harry Styles will be taking to the Victoria's Secret stage.

"She was initially granted a visa to perform at the VS show in Shanghai, then Chinese officials changed their minds and yanked her visa", a source said.

Perry is allegedly banned from traveling to China because of what she wore during a 2015 performance in Taipei, Taiwan: a sequined dress decorated embellished with sunflowers - a symbol for anti-China protesters the year before Perry's performance.

The 33-year-old pop star has been banned "indefinitely" from China, just days before her scheduled performance at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Page Six reported on Thursday.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai is disintegrating faster than a cheap lace thong. "Can't wait to tune in with everyone to see the attractive show I know it will be, and already can't wait for next year".




From what most publications and commenters on social media say, Hadid has also been denied a visa to the country because of the racist video of hers that had surfaced in September. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter". It was speculated that she was unable to get her visa after a video of her squinting her eyes while holding up a Buddha cookie resurfaced when she announced that she would be headed to Shanghai.

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. In February the United States model posted a video featuring her pulling a narrowed-eyes expression while holding a small Buddha.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show takes place on November 28, 2017.

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.
