Some bad news for you Russian fans.

Just days before the 21-year-old American singer was scheduled to perform at Russia’s St. Petersburg (September 21) and Moscow’s Olimpiisky Stadium September 25), she has no choice but to cancel the concerts after the country refused to grant her a visa.

As for why, it is reportedly rooted in her support for gay rights.

The Moscow Times reports:

Gomez failed to secure a Russian visa after the government tightened the visa regime for foreign musicians in response to Madonna‘s and Lady Gaga‘s decisions to openly support gays during their shows in Russia last year, the organizers told RIA Novosti.”

According to the outlet, Russian conservatives continue to ban the promotion of “nontraditional sexual relationships” to minors by actually filing lawsuits against international performers who support them.
