Ri Ri was all set to rock the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway this year, but unfortunately the “Diamond” singer will no longer be hitting the stage.

Instead of werking it on the catwalk, Rihanna will be working in the studio trying to finish her highly anticipated album, Anti. While Ri’s Navy is surely upset about this news, they can look forward to Ellie Goulding who will be stepping in to take her place. Also performing during the sexy show will be The Weeknd and Selena Gomez.

Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.
