Rihanna won’t be ripping the runway at “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.” The pop superstar has canceled her performance at the annual event.

“#VSFashionShow Musical Guest update: @elliegoulding in. @rihanna out,” tweeted Victoria’s Secret.

British singer Ellie Goulding will fill in for RiRi, while previously-announced performers The Weeknd and Selena Gomez remain on the bill.

While they perform, Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Behati Prinsloo, Candice Swanepoel, and Lily Aldridge will strut down the catwalk.
