To drive her point home, Perry also waved a Taiwanese flag during the concert in show of support for the country, which has been butting heads with China for years over its independence. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" the 22-year-old tweeted.

It was only back in August that Gigi shared the exciting news that she would, once again, be walking with her fellow Victoria Secret models in this year's show.

A Victoria's Secret online fan account worked out that three models from Russia (Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova) and one from Ukraine (Dasha Khlystun) have had their Chinese visas denied.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is scheduled to air on CBS on November 28, but people tasked with covering the event are "on the verge of nervous breakdowns", according to The Post.

The announcement is the second apparent snag to hit the U.S. lingerie maker's A-list underwear extravaganza set for Monday, following reports that three Russians and one Ukrainian model had failed to obtain Chinese visas.

'Justice League' finally gets an official Rotten Tomatoes score
A film's Tomatometer score is visible when customers are buying tickets at large theater chains through Fandago. At one point, the score was accidentally leaked online and it was 48-percent, according to Slashfilm .

Other models on the roster include Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and Bella Hadid.

"I am so excited!"

According to Page Six, coordinators are "on the verge of nervous breakdowns". Given Hadid's skirting of the issue-aside from a relatively secret apology on the Chinese social media site, Weibo-it's likely that the model isn't comfortable with the questions that might ensue if she was to go on with the show.

But perhaps her words weren't enough. "Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter". The controversy resurfaced when it was announced that the supermodel would be taking the runway in Shanghai.

It's known whether the show will be styled in a more conservative way in response to this, but it won't be long until we find out.
