Harry Styles confirmed to perform at Victoria's Secret show in Shanghai

On Friday, Page Six reported that Katy Perry is now backing out of the show, as she was denied a visa by the Chinese government, and possibly for political reasons.

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. '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.

"I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year".

Sources told Page Six that Hadid, who was booked for the show back in August, was banned because of a February Instagram video - in which she held up a biscuit shaped like a Buddha and imitated the religious figure by squinting her eyes.


Representatives for Perry and Victoria's Secret didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment regarding this situation. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter".

She later apologized on her official Weibo account, but her fans pointed out that the message was not enough, since people outside of China could not see it.

Previously, Perry also came under fire in Australia, after she appeared in an advert which sees the singer telling her dog to "go chase some koalas".

Page Six reports that Styles will replace Perry on the catwalk this year alongside the likes of Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and more. However, models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova have reportedly been denied entry into China because of "offensive" social media posts. Page Six has also reported that Adriana Lima's visa has been delayed due to some diplomatic problem.
