Katy Perry Banned From China Ahead of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Models Devon Windsor Megan Williams Roosmarijn de Kok and Nadine Leopold during 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show In Shanghai at Mercedes Benz Arena

Following persistent rumours of musicians and models being denied Chinese visas, this year's line-up of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show performers has just been confirmed.

The show has previously been filmed in New York City, Cannes, Paris, London, Miami, and Los Angeles.

Because of this tension, Perry's 2015 outfit, which she topped off with Taiwanese flag tied around her neck, could have been interpreted as a further anti-China statement.

Harry Styles will perform at the Victoria's Secret fashion show in China tomorrow (November 20), it has been announced. Gigi Hadid was also forced to pull out from the show at the last minute, but has yet to confirm why. Harry Styles has been reported as her replacement. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" the model wrote.

The run put the Chiefs pressing forward into looking for more as Manning quickly dropped back and ushered the ball to Lewis twice. We've seen what this offense can look like in the first five weeks of this season with good playcalling from Reid.

If true, Perry isn't the only A-lister who won't make it to Shanghai, China.

Hadid did not gave any explanation for her absence but it is being talked that she is among the ones affected by the Chinese visa issue.

"Victoria's Secret will not have a response", a spokeswoman told the Associated Press by email.

Hadid was reportedly denied access into the country 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, Fox News reports.

Apple pushes back release of HomePod speaker to 2018
Although developers can make apps for Siri and HomePod, they're now limited to building things like lists, notes, and messaging. The Apple HomePod has been delayed to early 2018, giving rivals Amazon and Google a huge advantage in the smart speaker race.

Hadid responded by apologizing in September on China's popular Twitter-like microblog site, Weibo. It wasn't immediately clear why the models would be barred from walking the runway Shanghai.

Three models from Russian Federation and one from Ukraine, who were all in the lineup to walk the show, have had to pull out because they were unable to get visas to China.

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