The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show does not have Rihanna’s money, or at least not enough of it to make her put off working on her new album to perform at the event on Nov. 9 and 10.
The “Umbrella” singer canceled her scheduled performance on one of the most famous catwalks in the world to put more time into her upcoming album, “Anti.”
Instead, fashion show attendees will be serenaded by Ellie Goulding, whose next album, “Delirium,” comes out Friday (Nov. 6). While Goulding’s new single “On My Mind” is one of the catchiest songs on radio, it’s hard to imagine her pulling off a stage show like Rihanna could.
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd will also be providing tunes for the models as they strut in Victoria’s Secret lingerie. Lily Aldridge will be donning the fantasy bra along with a $2 million top hat at the end of the show, which airs Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
For those that will desperately miss Rihanna, you can relive her 2012 Fashion Show performance of “Diamonds” below.
