Singer Katy Perry and model Gigi Hadid will not be by flying among the angels at Victoria’s Secret’s widely-anticipated Shanghai runway show this month.  Sharing her regrets on Twitter (below), Hadid wished her Victoria’s Secret family well, but did not acknowledge the “Buddha incident” which allegedly led to her being banned by Chinese officials.
According to Page Six, Perry’s denial stems from a controversial 2015 performance in Taipei, where she sported a sunflower-adorned costume; the sunflower is regarded as an anti-government symbol in China.  Additionally, models Adriana Lima, Irina Shripova, Julia Belyakova, and Kate Grigorieva have not yet been granted visas to enter the country.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today issued a safety communication to warn consumers and health care practitioners about the serious injuries and disfigurement that can result from using injectable silicone or products being falsely marketed as FDA-approved dermal fillers for the purpose of enhancing the size of their buttocks, breasts and other body parts.

“An important part of our public health mission is our obligation to warn consumers of unapproved products that are being marketed for medical uses that can cause serious harm. We have significant concerns with unsafe injectable silicone that’s being marketed for body contouring by unlicensed providers. We’ve seen serious adverse events result from products, which are sometimes industrial-grade silicone, being used for these unapproved medical purposes,” said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. “The FDA has stepped in to take enforcement actions against unscrupulous actors who promote and provide these services, but we also want to make the public aware of the risks, which can include irreversible disfigurement and even death. While we’ll continue to go after those who provide these unlawful services, the FDA will have its greatest impact by educating Americans to avoid these unsafe practices.”
