“It is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers,” which was wrote by Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture. China is a kind of conventional in the world now based on the national culture, especially for elderly individuals. For instance, until April, 2001, homosexuality was removed from mental sickness by Chinese Psychiatric Association. In other words, homosexual individuals was seemed as mental patients before the year of 2001, and until now, most of individuals. especially elders, do not accept homosexuality.  This kind of social mode definitely has influenced the area of entertainment. Besides the local culture, the sensitivity of policy is one of factors that affect the media and the entertainment in China. In 2016, Lady Gaga met with Dalai Lama, who is the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, to have a conversation about yoga. Due to this meeting, China has banned Lady Gaga’s entertaining activity. Moreover, Bon Jovi, Maroon 5, Oasis, and Bjork have been challenged similar resistance after announcing the support of Tibetan independence in public. Thus, if singers’ behaviours and views on politics negatively affected the country’s benefits or caused social negative speech, China had authority to ban their social activities in the country.

Recently, China has banned Justin Bieber every performing activities in the country due to his “bad behaviours”. The statement was established on the website of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture, “Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer … As far as we are concerned, he has engaged in a series of bad behaviours, both in his social life and during a previous performance in China, which caused discontent among the public. In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers. We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public.” In 2013, Justin Bieber resulted in the fan commotion by skateboarding at outside one of malls in Beijing. Moreover, in 2014, after Justin Bieber visited the controversial Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, with then-Foreign Ministry of China Qin Gang said, “I hope this singer can learn more about the history of Japanese militarism, and the wrongful historical and militaristic views promoted by the shrine after his visit.” Those behaviours negatively affected social benefits and did not respect the country’s benefits, as Chinese government thought, so they finally banned Justin Bieber any entertaining performance in the country.
