Guess Who's Now Performing at the 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.

The November 28 CBS broadcast airs at 10PM ET/PT.

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.

Katy Perry, who was set to perform, has now been banned from China indefinitely - along with a host of top models, including Gigi Hadid - after being booked in advance for Monday's big event.

Sources told the publication that the "Roar" singer had tried applying for a visa to enter the conservative, communist country, but was denied by Chinese officials. At the time, the sunflower had just been adopted by anti-China protesters as a symbol; this, apparently, is enough to prompt officials to ban her from the country for life. While we'll have to wait to see what this year's lingerie extravaganza brings, it's safe to say there's one clear must-have accessory for a VS model off-duty: a French girl-approved hat. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter".

She is being replaced in the show by Harry Styles. Hadid didn't share an explicit reason for the abrupt change in plans - and Victoria's Secret is not talking - but the announcement spurned speculation that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills daughter had run into problems acquiring a visa, too.

The surprise exit comes months after a video of Hadid triggered an outpouring of criticism on Chinese social networks. "May this be a lesson for her. Apologies doesn't erase the actions".

Excitement about this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is in full swing, especially now that the models have arrived in Shanghai. However, models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova have reportedly been denied entry into China because of "offensive" social media posts. According to Page Six, several fashion bloggers have run into the now-familiar can't-get-a-visa issue.
