  • Katy Perry banned from China as Victoria's Secret Fashion Show continues to crumble

And to think: All we wanted for Christmas was to see what Gigi Hadid will wear in the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. "Can't wait to tune in with everyone to see the handsome show I know it will be, and already can't wait for next year".

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is usually associated with fireworks, glitter, and general extravagance - but this year all of that has gone up in smoke.

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".

Model Gigi Hadid will be sitting out of this show, with rumours claiming it's because she's been banned from the country.




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.

At one point during her 2015 concert, she even draped a Taiwanese flag over her sunflower dress, further angering a country that has long refused to recognize Taiwan as its territory.

Hadid did not mention the controversy this week when she tweeted about missing the show. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter". VS has been expanding its presence in the Chinese market, opening a boutique in Shanghai in March, as well as 26 beauty- and accessories-only stores in mainland China. Her sister, Bella, who posted the video that was later deleted, is still scheduled to be part of the show. Reports suggest that Chinese officials look through the social media profiles of artists before such big events to check if they have been involved in offensive activities toward the nation.
