First Gigi Hadid, now Katy Perry?

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. Last month, China Digital Times posted a letter that was supposedly sent by Perry to Chinese officials, in which it stated that she would "observe the laws and regulations" in China and "promise not to say or do anything religious or political".

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. We have more models than ever before - 55 representing 17 countries, and four world-class entertainers'.

After the video was posted, the 22-year-old model wrote: "It hurts me to hurt anyone, and I want you all to know that it was never my intent to offend anyone through my actions and I sincerely apologise to those..." Also, the Chinese social media users gave her a warning not to come to Shanghai and called her a racist.

It was not immediately clear whether Hadid had been denied a visa. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter".

This trackable pill has just been approved by United States health regulators
What's interesting about the digital pill is that it's the first time this kind of monitoring device has been attached to a drug. The approval also opens the door for pills that are used for other conditions beyond mental health to be digitized.

Apart from these two huge roadblocks, several other models (three Russian and one Ukrainian: Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova and Dasha Khlystun) will also not be able to land in Shanghai for the show for the same reason; rejection of visa.

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

She is being replaced in the show by Harry Styles.

Page Six earlier reported that not only the VS models but also the fashion bloggers are also cancelling their trips.
