Rihanna Pulls Out Of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

This year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has already built up an awful lot of anticipation. 

What with the big announcement that Kendall Jenner would be joining the squad of Victoria’s Secret models, and the video clip that saw BFF Gigi Hadid being given the same job, the buzz has really been building. 

Earlier this year, news broke that Rihanna would be the big pop name to grace the Victora’s Secret stage. But in a shock move, the star has now quit the job and cancelled her VS gig.

According to PEOPLE, Ellie Goulding will be filling the spot left by RiRi, alongside previously unannounced performers Selena Gomez and The Weeknd.

Rihanna has left it to the last minute to pull out, as the show is set to be taped next week.

A source revealed to the publication that Rihanna was forced to cancel her appearance due to work commitments, as she’s currently finishing her album.

Whilst this is a surprising turn of events, supermodel Jourdan Dunn has confused things further, with a bizarre tweet that seems to be hitting out against the show. 

The British model, who has walked in the last three Victoria’s Secret​ shows, will not be returning for this year’s lavish lingerie fest.

Taking to Twitter, the star wrote: ‘Feeling soo much better about not doing BS… sorry I mean VS now that Rihanna isn’t doing it also.’ She also added a smile emoji at the end. 


It seems that Jourdan was quick to delete her tweet soon after posting it, but not before fans noticed, shared it, and it was screenshotted.

Now everyone’s been left wondering what the meaning behind this outburst might be…
