Katy Perry was said to perform at the show, but now she is reportedly "banned from China indefinitely". As China's own Justin Bieber, the actor and musician has a fan base of almost 10 million Instagram followers, a fact that recently resulted in Luhan quite literally breaking the Internet.

In addition to people not being allowed in the country, producers are being denied access to shoot anywhere outside of the Mercedes-Benz Studio, where the show is being filmed.

Yesterday, Gigi Hadid announced she wouldn't be participating in Victoria's Secret Fashion Show this year in China and it's rumored it's because she couldn't secure a visa.

She tweeted on Thursday, "I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year".

Katy Perry caused controversy in this sunflower dress.

The Victoria's Secret models have been documenting their travels to Shanghai, sharing their favorite travel accessories and last-minute workouts before the big show.

"If you're going to China, you want to show that you are in China!" an insider griped to Page Six. At a 2015 concert in Taipei, Perry wore a glittery sunflower-patterned dress and waved a Taiwanese flag during her performance.

Angel Adriana Lima's visa has been reportedly delayed and four other models were reportedly denied visas to travel to China.

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".

On Tuesday, Gigi unveiled her second product collaboration with Stuart Weitzman: two new shoe styles just in time for the holidays.

Question. why the HELL did Victoria's Secret execs pick China to host their internationally-famous fashion show?

Perry's rep did not comment when reached by Page Six. This isn't the only setback Victoria's Secret staff is facing while producing the 2017 show in Shanghai, according to reports.
