"I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year".

In another performance during the same show, Perry also wore a sunflower dress which was largely perceived as a reference to Taiwan's "Sunflower Revolution".

Whilst Gigi won't be strutting her stuff on the catwalk this year, her younger sister Bella, 21, is still expected to appear in the line-up alongside Victoria's Secret Angels Alessandra Ambrosio, Candica Swanepoel and Adriana Lima.

With Perry, Chinese officials reportedly took offense at her wearing a dress with sunflowers on it during a 2015 performance in Taiwan. And that's bad news for these two celebs who have reportedly been denied visas because of past incidents of accused racism.

Does sex trigger heart attacks?
There's one silver lining for people who have a cardiac arrest from sex - they're nearly twice as likely to survive, Chugh said. These new data may help inform discussions between healthcare providers and patients on the safety of sexual activity.

According to Page Six, an insider disclosed that Perry - who was slated to perform and booked well in advance - had attempted to apply for a Chinese visa but was denied. Last year, Lady Gaga was banned from visiting China because she met with the Dalai Lama, and other celebs like Harrison Ford, Richard Gere and Maroon 5 have also been denied access. Sunflowers were apparently the adopted symbol for Taiwanese anti-China protesters, and at the time, caused global outrage in the communist nation. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!"

"Perry is a role model to so many young people, and this just destroys all the good work we do to try to encourage people not to let their dogs come into contact with koalas". In February she posted a video online featuring her making a "narrow eyes" gesture with a Buddha. Harry Styles has been reported as her replacement.

Victoria's Secret didn't immediately respond to WWD's request for comment.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is crumbling faster than the Great Wall of China. There has been tension between China and Taiwan over the latter's independence since the early 1900s with Taiwan protesting for the right to rule themselves and China resistant to relinquishing their power over the state. This isn't the only setback Victoria's Secret staff is facing while producing the 2017 show in Shanghai, according to reports.
