Selena Gomez Denied Russian Visa Over Anti-Gay Law

Selena Gomez won't be performing in Russia any time soon.

According to E! News, Gomez's concert promoters say that the 21-year-old's Russian visa request has been denied and will need to cancel her September 23rd and September 25th shows in St. Petersburg's Ice Palace and Moscow's Olimiisky stadium, respectively.

Russia's new anti-gay law is reportedly one of the reasons Gomez's visa application was rejected, since Russian authorities are now making it more difficult for performers who speak out in favor of gay rights to travel to the country.
