Ed Razek, executive producer of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and chief creative officer at Victoria's Secret, told People: 'We started booking our musical guests months ago when Harry Styles, global superstar, signed on.

Hadid said in a post on her Twitter account Friday: "I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year".

As the show drew near, rumors of a Katy Perry performance also began emerging.

According to a report by Page Six, Katy has allegedly been banned from China over a controversial dress she wore in Taiwan back in 2015.

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. The sunflower had been a symbol for Taiwanese anti-China protesters, and Perry's choice of outfit did not go unnoticed. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter".


Earlier this fall, the Shanghai Municipal Culture, Radio Broadcasting, Film and Television Administration released a document revealing that Taylor Swift and Harry Styles had obtained work authorization for a Shanghai show on November 20.

Hadid did not gave any explanation for her absence but it is being talked that she is among the ones affected by the Chinese visa issue.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is usually associated with fireworks, glitter, and general extravagance - but this year all of that has gone up in smoke. It was speculated that she was unable to get her visa after a video of her squinting her eyes while holding up a Buddha cookie resurfaced when she announced that she would be headed to Shanghai.

Angel Adriana Lima's visa has been reportedly delayed and four other models were reportedly denied visas to travel to China.
