Selena Gomez is banned from Russia, and Lady Gaga and Madonna are to blame… kind of. I’m hearing that Sel was scheduled to perform concerts in St. Petersburg and Moscow next week, but she was denied a visa, reportedly because of an effort by the country to restrict artists who support gay rights.
Whispers are going around that a major part of this ban comes from Lady Gaga and Madonna’s open advocacy for LGBT rights in that country which says no to “nontraditional sexual relationships.”
Sel has been busy on her overseas tour, stopping in Germany, Portugal, and France, among other exotic places, but the one place she won’t be saying hi to her fans at is Russia. Sorry, kids!
