Katy Perry, Gigi Hadid Banned From China As Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Unravels

As we reported yesterday, this year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which is slated to take place in Shanghai in just two weeks, is unraveling like a cheap lace thong thanks to Chinese authorities’ refusal to cooperate with its producers, and Communist Party's decision to deny visas to some of the biggest stars who were slated to participate in the show.

The latest update on the deteriorating state of affairs comes via the New York Post, which has reported that US pop sensation Katy Perry – who was slated to perform at the show – and supermodel Gigi Hadid, who was supposed to walk in the show, have been indefinitely banned from China.

Sources told the Post’s infamous Page Six gossip section that the “Roar” singer had tried applying for a visa to enter the Communist nation, but was denied by Chinese officials.

And while she was initially informed that she’d be able to gain access, the decision was apparently reversed after the government caught wind of a controversial incident from 2015, in which Perry donned a bright, glittery dress with sunflowers on it during a performance in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan.

The innocent gesture wound up causing widespread outrage in China because the sunflower had been adopted the year before by anti-China protesters.

However, Perry also waved a Taiwanese flag during the concert in show of support for the country, which has been clashing with the mainland for years over its autonomy.

“She was initially granted a visa to perform at the VS show in Shanghai, then Chinese officials changed their minds and yanked her visa,” a source explained. “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. Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Hadid and a handful of other models were banned because of social media posts that apparently offended Chinese government officials.

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.

The clip was posted by the model’s sister, Bella Hadid, in February. It was later deleted following a storm of criticism as Chinese social-media users warned her not to come to Shanghai, calling her racist.

Apparently, Victoria’s Secret has decided that the show will go on, with or without Hadid:

 

 

Some of Victoria’s Secret’s biggest names have been denied entry to China, in addition to lesser-known models, such as Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova.

Model Adriana Lima’s visa has been held up due to an ongoing “diplomatic problem."

Harry Styles will reportedly replace Perry as the show’s performing artist.

>innocent totally accidental use of symbolismIn China, since ancient times, dissent is shown through pretty obscure methods, not unlike that Shakespeare In The Park episode that will live in infamy, only more subtle.Additionally, "Katy" utilizes occult symbolism (her performances have included, for example, evoking the elements of the four directions in seemingly unneeded extra choreography. However, it's likely she wasn't aware of the meaning of the flower, there. But innocence? Not a chance!

Katy Perry is not only an Establishment whore,she is considered a "high Priestess",like Madonna, and other assorted whores. Look at their videos,with Satan/Masonic/One eye symbols.She is  ,like Hadid ,very ,very stupid.Whores,with no decency and no brain,thinking they are "somebody",they are cool, and a "model" for the young generation,only because they look good and have money(paper money)

at least we now know that the Chi-Coms aren't going to put up with scumbag, sellout, morally corrupt satanists like Katy Perry.And isn't it interesting that they just recently gave President Trump the most lavish, honorable and distinguished diplomatic visit to a U.S. President in all of history????  :-)Remember when O-Traitor went over there a few years ago?  They almost completely ignored him.  Made him exit out the back of the Airforce 1 jet without hardly even a handshake!!! LOL  They showed the whole world how much they hated him and O-Traitor is a fucking Commie just like them!!!!  hahahaha  Yet at the same time, both sides of our own fake and corrupt "right/left" government paradigm are nearly 100% against President Trump?  Really shows a lot about what's really going on at the higher levels right now about who's really "winning", and the scumbag satanist globalist pedophile corrupt assholes who have been trying to take over the world aren't "winning" right now.  Let's hope the trend continues for many more years to come and they all end up dead or in jail.Trump is the real rock star and scumbags like Katy Perry are the true corrupt scumbags just like 99% of all media, politicians, and entertainment scum and pedophiles are world-wide. The Chi-Coms are corrupt scumbags too...but obviously they have chosen sides at this point, and they aren't choosing to side with the globalist, satanic, scum...they're working with Trump instead and he's working with them and others like Putin (like it or not) in certain ways to rid this world of all this corrupt scum as fast as possible.Look at how all these scumbags are falling apart since Trump got elected. It's happening, folks.  Gotta love it!!!

All I know is that I am sick of Katy Perry songs, and I would dearly love to ban her from my house, but a pre-teen daughter is hard to reason with. Just remember, the Katy Perrys, Justin Beibers etc of this world are merely children's entertainers, just like the dodgy clown who does crap balloon animals and pretend magic tricks at your kids' birthday parties. Hardly grounds for hero worship.

And no, I am not comfortable that my daughter is infatuated with Katy "groupsex" Perry, but give it another 6 months and she will have grown out it, and moved on to the next awful pretend singer

Worse than the balloon artist, they are tools of the elite to corrupt the youth.

MK/MONARCH programming.

"Music" videos are full of creepy, sick symbolism.

The sunflower dress was not a coincidence.

The balloon artist might be a pedo who corrupts less than a hundred children in a lifetime.

The Entertainment industry corrupts generations of children.

  It used to be that Companies like VS would cancel the whole show in support of free speech.   I guess a few bucks from communists is more important than having the right to say what you want when you want.      Funny how no one even blinks about this, yet Trump is Hitler for banning visa's from countries who cannot document their citizens well enough to make a determination as to whether they are radicals or not.

          Nmewn's Fake Nuuuz CentralAn international incident has just occured over Venezuela banning Chinese swimsuit models from entering the country. Xi's ambassador to Venezuela, He Hung Lo, sent Maduro's ambassador Carlos Rivaldo-Sanchez-Ruiz-Jorge-Pepe-Escobar a strongly worded statement demanding an explanation.More as it develops but I just love saying Jorge...pronounced Hor-Hay ;-)
