Rihanna Reportedly Cancels Victoria’s Secret Show Because of Kendall Jenner
Rihanna said that she canceled her scheduled performance at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to continue working on her album, “Anti”. However, a Twitter post from VS Angel Jourdan Dunn hinted that the Bajan beauty had a completely different reason to pull out of the annual event.
In her now-deleted tweet, which she sent out after RiRi announced the cancellation, Dunn suggested that she was supposed to walk the show but ended up getting removed from the line-up against her will. “Feeling so much better about not doing BS… sorry I mean VS now that Rihanna isn’t doing it also,” the model wrote and added a laughing emoji.
Fans began to speculate that Rih’s exit was a result of Dunn being kicked out of the show and replaced by Kendall Jenner. A fan said the singer wasn’t happy that a black supermodel got snubbed, so she decided not to do the gig.
This year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is set to take place on November 9 and will be aired on CBS on Tuesday, December 8. Jenner will make her VS walking debut along with pal Gigi Hadid. Ellie Goulding has been tapped to replace Rihanna, joining other performers Selena Gomez and The Weeknd.
