Katy Perry has recently canceled one of her concerts in China due to an alleged ‘Family Emergency.’
The 32-year-old singer apologized to his fans via her Weibo page. “Regretfully, I must cancel my appearance on the Alibaba Double 11 due to a family emergency. I am very sorry to disappoint my fans and look forward to seeing you in China soon,” those were the word’s Perry used, aiming at appeasing the tens of thousands of disappointed fans that were hoping for a chance to meet and hear the celebrity.
Alibaba named Perry a “global ambassador” in October. The singer was set to appear in Shenzhen alongside NBA player Kobe Bryant and the band OneRepublic at the company’s gala (now being replaced by David Beckham). Singles Day is an online shopping event in China. Billions were spent last year using Alibaba’s payment service, Alipay—far more than the U.S.A.’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.
The recent weeks have not been kind to Katey. The singer was also scheduled to appear as part of Stephen Colbert’s live Showtime election special. However, Billboard was told by an anonymous source that the segment was pre-taped. This result in the T.V. special’s producers deciding not to air the bit.
