While most fashion folks get most excited about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show because it gives them a chance to cheer their favorite supermodels on, another huge draw for the annual event is the musical programming. For the upcoming edition of the show, the lineup is stacked, with Rihanna, the Weeknd and Selena Gomez all slated to take the stage as women like Gigi Hadid, Candace Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge and (reportedly) Kendall Jenner strut their stuff. But on Tuesday, People reported that RiRi — who last performed at the VS Fashion Show back in 2012 — has suddenly dropped out of the event, which tapes next week on Nov. 10, and airs on CBS on Dec. 8.

Reps for Victoria's Secret did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

This being Victoria's Secret, the company has already filled the empty slot on the bill. According to People, British songstress Ellie Goulding will step in for Rihanna. Goulding will be a VS Fashion Show first-timer, but with a handful of newbie models like Hadid already on deck, she'll be in good company.
