If you were looking forward to seeing Bad Gal Riri strut her stuff down a runway next month, we hate to be the bearer of bad news. According to People, a source for Rihanna confirms that the #BBHMM singer has canceled her performance for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to focus on her eighth-studio album, ANTI.
The show, which will be filmed next week and broadcast on CBS on Dec. 8th, will feature performances from The Weeknd, Selena Gomez and British songbird Ellie Goulding, who will be performing in place of Rihanna. RiRi, who recently landed a $25 million deal with Samsung, performed her songs “Diamonds” and “Fresh Off the Runway” at the coveted runway show in 2012.
This year, the star power will be in full effect. Alongside big name musical guests, models for this year’s show will include your favorite VS vets Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Candice Swanepoel as well as new additions to the angel lineup, including Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, Us Weekly reports.
