Katy Perry banned from China 'indefinitely' days before Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Katy Perry and Gigi were reportedly denied entry into China for the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, denying the event two of its biggest attractions.

While she was initially informed that she'd be able to gain access, the decision was apparently reversed after the government caught wind of a controversial incident from 2015, in which Perry donned a bright, glittery dress with sunflowers on it during a performance in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan.

Page Six also reports that models Gigi Hadid, Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova may have all been banned too for various reasons. Earlier this year, she came under fire for "racism" after her fellow model and sister Bella, shared a since-deleted video of her laughing and squinting her eyes while holding a cookie featuring the face of a samurai.

Her outfit wound up causing widespread outrage because the sunflower had been adopted the year before by anti-China protesters. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" the model wrote on Twitter Thursday. The VS show is scheduled to tape live in Shanghai on September 28. The abrupt announcement has many fans speculating as to why she will not be there.

Forget "teenage dream", because Katy Perry is likely living out her nightmare. With the show taking place in Shanghai, commenters called for the model to drop out nearly immediately after news broke that she was joining the 2017 model cast.

A Victoria's Secret spokesman declined comment when asked by AFP whether Hadid pulled out on her own, was asked to by the company, or whether Chinese authorities applied any pressure. "I have learned to be very careful of how my actions can come off or be portrayed, and I'm hopeful you'll accept my apology".

Harper's Bazaar said other Victoria's Secret Angel models expected to make the show include Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro, Lily Aldridge, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, and Candice Swanepoel.
