Katy Perry has been axed from the upcoming Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai just days after fellow a-lister Gigi Hadid pulled out.

Perry, who was set to perform, has reportedly been denied a visa, a decision said to be linked to a costume she wore in 2015 in Taiwan.

The banning is said to be linked to the controversial outfit, which consisted of glittery dress with sunflowers on it during a performance in Taipei.

The outfit outraged Chinese authorities, according to reports, because the sunflower was at the time an anti-China symbol inside the Asian superpower.

The news comes after Gigi Hadid this week pulled out of the show, with that decision potentially linked to social-media posts deemed offensive by Chinese censors.
