Why Was Selena Gomez Banned From Russia?

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! :(

What do you think of this ban? Tell me in a comment below!

    I think-
    Why are you trying to talk real world politics, let alone to a bunch of vapid wanna be fauxxkks?
    Anyway, Selena is so meh. I’m not agreeing with Russia’s political morals, per say… But I am saying who cares, especially about Sel?! Bye.

  2. Toma Said:

    This is kind of sad, because I actually AM from Russia. :(

    That’s just stupid! My parents and most of my family came from Russia many years ago (to the USA). That’s just a disgrace to my family and my ancestors! So what if she supports gay rights! It’s NOT your job, as a country, to tell her that she can’t sing in your country because her views are wrong, in your opinion! Free speech man! You NEED to embrace that because it is awesome! Go worry about Syria blowing your sorry asses to bits and NOT about someone’s opinions!

    You do realize that many of Russia’s “Anti-gay” laws are incredibly similar to several laws found in a number of States within the US…

    I live in the U.S., and I did not know what Selena’s opinion about homosexuals was or are or is. How does RUSSIA know? What happens to all the fans who are waiting to see her. Does her appearance bring revenue to the area? Could be the “powers to be” in Russia really shot themselves in the foot this time.

  11. Emma Said:

    Nonsense… This world is really going crazy and the worst thing is that we aren’t doing anything to stop it.
