Katy Perry, one of the most successful pop artists in history, whose hit singles “I Kissed a Girl,” “Teenage Dream” and “Dark Horse” have made her a household name the world over, will perform at a gala event to kick off Alibaba Group’s 11.11 Global Shopping Festival in Shenzhen the night of Nov. 10.

At the event, which is called the 11.11 Countdown Gala Celebration, Katy will sing her latest single “Rise,” which she also performed at the Democratic National Convention in July and was the theme song for the Rio Olympics a month later. In addition to her performance, Alibaba has named Perry a “global ambassador” to promote the gala worldwide and bring attention to what is China’s largest shopping day of the year.


“Katy Perry uses her music to inspire positivity among her audience,” Alibaba said in a statement, adding that the singer’s international profile “perfectly fits the theme of the 11.11 gala.” Alibaba had previously said that globalization was again a major focus of the one-day online sale.

Katy is affectionately known as Shui Guo Jie, or “Fruit Sister,” in China because of her brightly colored outfits. That popularity drew her to China for the first time last year, when she held concerts in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Macau as part of her Prismatic World Tour.

In a video interview, she said:

I AM SO EXCITED TO BE THE AMBASSADOR FOR THE TMALL DOUBLE 11 FESTIVAL. VERY EXCITING! I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO THE SHOW ON NOVEMBER 10TH IN SHENZHEN. FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T MAKE IT, YOU CAN WATCH IT ON ZHEJIANG TV.


CANCELLED!

That doesn't seem like a viable reason to me honestly... She's been very vocal about the election and very strong, I don't think she'd cancel for that. Especially when she's had bigger personal blows in her lifetime.

Exactly! The last time she canceled a show was during the CDT. It's not like her to cancel a show. We know she was sick during PWT and she didn't cancel one show. I just hope she and her family are okay.

Only three days ago, Capitol records announced that on November 15th (coming Tuesday) Katy is one of the stars presenting the star of recognition at the Capitol records tower; the news has even been edited but without any change about the announcement of Katy. I think she had to attend a matter which was even if not literally in the nearest family then at least within her closest circle and just wasn't meant to be disclosed to the public.
Also, with Katy's post about Planned Parenthood on Instagram I think it's clear enough she's at the same time been working on other things. There could be a hundred reasons why she might be going through a difficult time but it's by the look of it far from as awful as many seem to be afraid it is.

Yeah, we probably will never know why she cancelled. Capitol Records couldn't say anything about their star until now. People think she cancelled because of the election. She supported Hillary for 2 years and Dump won which I'm still confused about.

It had nothing to do with Katy. In my opinion she wasted her time and energy because recruiting pop stars for canvassing and singing at rallys doesn't influence politics and the outcome of elections in the slightest. Have you read about the hacking incidents done through Russia just before the elections and the investigations of how the election could have been hacked and manipulated through  places in Russia? Also, how thousands of votes were not counted? I have spent 5 days with nothing but reading, I have mostly not slept. I have never been so scared about world politics. We're heading towards a world war and everything going on in the USA was set up for it. If Katy supports Hillary Clinton or not matters as much as if I sneeze or not. Her fans need to come out of this bubble, she's a pop star and has no influence on the multi billion dollar evil machine which is destroying us. Voters in those elections were just cleverly used. It's not about trump alone, it's about the oligarchy behind it. Trump must never become president, no matter by which means. Once he is, it's too late. Several techniques once used by the NSDAP are already in action NOW, one of the most telling is the beginning of systematically shutting down the free press. It doesn't mean a law will shut them down but that fear on one side and ignorance on the other will. People who don't known must read, read, read, and see what this is about. It's not about a new government, it's the state changing into a different one, a horrible, frightening one, leading to horrible events there and in the world.
Btw, I just don't see why the election should make her cancel a concert in China. I know some keep thinking that, but how would how am I supposed to make the connection, I just can't see it.,

The album, I think so, too, by now! Some think work won't even progress now, I don't know about that, but this politics stunt must have put it almost on ice to a large extent so far.
