Selena Gomez’s Russian Visa Denied Due To Gay Rights Stance

slena_gomez_2013If Selena Gomez wants to perform in Russia, she might try pulling an Edward Snowden and leaking state secrets because that may be the only way she’s likely to gain entry.

Promoters for a pair of concerts the “Come & Get It” crooner had scheduled in the country for later this month have told The Moscow Times that Russian officials have turned down her visa request, forcing her to scrap the gigs.

Organizers cited Russia’s new anti-gay law as one of the reasons for Gomez’s rejection since Russian authorities have been tightening travel restrictions for performers who speak out in favor of gay rights.
