Selena Gomez can't perform in Russia. Promoters for a pair of concerts she had scheduled in the country for later this month announced Russian officials turned down her visa request and the gigs have been cancelled.
Organizers said that Selena's stance on Russia's new anti-gay law was one of the reasons, since Russian authorities have been tightening travel restrictions for performers who speak out in favor of gay rights.
The visa denial came after Madonna and Lady Gaga made public shout-outs during their shows expressing solidarity with Russia's LGBT community.
