Kendall Jenner Joins the Victoria’s Secret Squad, While Rihanna Backs Out

Breaking news: Rihanna, one of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015 performers, unexpectedly pulled the plug on her performance, which is to take place on November 10. While Rihanna backed out, another person enthusiastically joined the Victoria’s Secret crew: Kendall Jenner.

In an official statement, Victoria’s Secret confirmed Rihanna’s musical performance cancellation Tuesday morning, replacing her with British pop singer Ellie Goulding. If you were looking forward to listening to something from Rihanna’s new album Anti, you might have to wait for a few more weeks. Although no one knows for sure why Rihanna backed out of the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it is rumored that RiRi needs some more time to focus on her upcoming highly anticipated album.

Speculations that Rihanna’s 8th studio album wasn’t going to be released any time soon have been spreading around the Internet for some time now, even though the Barbadian artist unveiled Anti’s cover last month. Even Rihanna’s father fueled such rumors by saying that RiRi wasn’t actually satisfied with the group of songs that had been selected to appear on the album.

Goulding, whose new album Delirium comes out on November 6, only 4 days before the big event, is thus joining Selena Gomez and The Weeknd onstage, and will surely give the team a huge contribution. She is used to high-fashion events: just a few years ago she performed along with Sir Elton John at Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding, romantically singing Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ during the couple’s first dance.

Rihanna’s performance is surely going to be missed, but there’s no doubt the 28-year-old Brit singer will keep the pop music’s flag flying.

Victoria’s Secret’s latest official statements, which include Lily Aldridge’s appointment as the one to wear the $2 million Fireworks Fantasy Bra, include also Kendall Jenner’s walk in the forthcoming fashion show. Jenner, who turned 20 on November 3, 2015, celebrated thus her birthday with one of the most awaited requests a model could ever get as a present: becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

After much speculation, in fact, she announced the big news via her twitter account, stating that this is “the best birthday present of ALL TIME. #SoDamnHappy!!!” Kendal Jenner will be sharing this unexpected birthday gift with Gigi Hadid, one of her closest friends, who was also confirmed for the show less than a week ago.

Besides Kendall Jenner, the show will also feature new additions, such as Elsa Hosk, Kate Grigorieva and PINK model Rachel Hilbert, making this year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show an event undoubtedly full of surprises.
