Surprise, Surprise — Rihanna is being replaced with Ellie Goulding at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Surprise, surprise. Rihanna is out of the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and will be replaced by Ellie Goulding. Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner received the best birthday gift ever when she found out she will be walking the show for the first time.
The only bad news? Kendall is replacing VS Angel vet, Jourdan Dunn.

Kendall Jenner got the best birthday gift ever — her wings! A source close to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show tells ET that the 20-year-old model will walk in the highly anticipated runway show. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star will be in good company following the news that best friend Gigi Hadid will also strut the catwalk, when the show airs on Tuesday, Dec.
This is how Kendall announced her VS debut:
the best birthday present EVER! always been one of my biggest dreams to be on this catwalk. @victoriassecret ‘s newest recruits. oh and I get to do it with my best friend 😋

That is such a bummer — Rihanna exiting the fashion show, which I believe many really looked forward to. Not only was everyone expecting something new this year (no Taylor Swift on stage anymore), but everyone wanted to hear RiRi’s new songs too. However, she chose to exit the show to focus on her album instead. BUT I heard from the grapevine that this wasn’t the real reason RiRi is out of the VS Fashion Show. Speculations point to the sudden bump in the model lineup, resulting to model Jourdan Dunn getting the boot only to have Kendall Jenner replace her. Rumors say that RiRi wasn’t happy that a model of color got the boot and she thought it was unfair, which is why she just chose to not perform at all. Whatever the true reason is, we all know it won’t be the same without RiRi performing on that stage.
What do you think, ladies? Do you prefer Ellie over Rihanna? Let us know!
