Harry Styles, Miguel and More Performers Announced For Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Harry Styles, Miguel and More Performers Announced For Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Katy Perry, who was slated to sing at the show, won't be able to make it to Shanghai, either.

This year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on November 28 at 10 pm ET/PT.

Top model Gigi Hadid backed out of the show following allegations that she "discriminated" against Chinese people.

With Perry, Chinese officials reportedly took offense at her wearing a dress with sunflowers on it during a 2015 performance in Taiwan.

A source told the site that before performers can enter China, "officials comb through their social-media and press reports to see if they have done anything deemed to be offensive to the country".

To drive her point home, Perry also waved a Taiwanese flag during the concert in show of support for the country, which has been butting heads with China for years over its independence. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter". "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!"

Alongside Gigi Hadid, some other big names of Victoria's Secret have been denied Chinese visa. Still, without an announcement from Victoria's Secret, it was hard to view the graphics as definitive. 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. "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", the post said.

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. It wasn't immediately clear why the models would be barred from walking the runway Shanghai.

Supermodel Adriana Lima's visa is in limbo due to a "diplomatic problem", according to Page Six.
