Mother Russia isn't ready for Selena Gomez. The songstress' request for a visa to enter the country has been rejected, forcing her to cancel her two scheduled shows in St. Petersburg and Moscow later this month. Promoters for the shows tell The Moscow Times that Gomez was likely denied because of the country's anti-gay laws as Russian authorities have been tightening travel restrictions for performers who speak out in favor of gay rights.
