"The news reports I've been reading from the U.S. here in Shanghai regarding this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show are not an accurate reflection of what I'm seeing and experiencing on site", he said.
Model Gigi Hadid will be sitting out of this show, with rumours claiming it's because she's been banned from the country.
Sources told Page Six that Hadid, who was booked for the show back in August, was banned because of a February Instagram video - in which she held up a biscuit shaped like a Buddha and imitated the religious figure by squinting her eyes.
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.
Perry's rep did not comment when reached by Page Six.
If true, Perry isn't the only A-lister who won't make it to Shanghai, China.
According to Page Six, the "Roar" singer is barred from entering China after a 2015 performance in Taiwan, in which she wore sunflowers on her dress just after the flower had become a famous symbol for Taiwanese independence protesters.
"She was initially granted a visa to perform at the VS show in Shanghai, then Chinese officials changed their minds and yanked her visa", a source explained.
It was not immediately clear whether Hadid had been denied a visa.
This year, 55 models will strut down the catwalk, including Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Stella Maxwell, Elsa Hosk, and many more. Irina Sharipova, Kate Grigorieva, Julia Belyakova, and Dasha Khlystun have reportedly been denied Chinese visas, and thus unable to walk in the show when it tapes on Monday, Nov. 21.
But he added: 'This will, without question, be the biggest fashion event in history and our most ambitious show by far.
It's also notoriously hard to get a visa to travel to China.
