Perry is allegedly banned from traveling to China because of what she wore during a 2015 performance in Taipei, Taiwan: a sequined dress decorated embellished with sunflowers - a symbol for anti-China protesters the year before Perry's performance.
The drama surrounding this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show doesn't seem to die down even as the show date gets closer.
Sources exclusively told Page Six on Thursday that the "Swish Swish" singer had tried applying for a visa to enter the communist nation, but was denied by Chinese officials.
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". It was revealed that the show will return with its angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmine Tookes, Candice Swanepoel, Stella Maxwell, Gigi and her sister, Bella Hadid.
No matter which route you take, there's no question that it's the chicest way for mere mortals to accessorize like a Victoria's Secret model in every corner of the globe.

The surprise exit comes months after a video that showed Hadid squinting as she held up a miniature Buddha triggered an outpouring of criticism on Chinese social networks. Reports suggest that Chinese officials look through the social media profiles of artists before such big events to check if they have been involved in offensive activities toward the nation.
