Rihanna reportedly served of performing with the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show because she wasn’t wanting to perform new material.
The singer was on account of unveil a brand-new track with the high-profile runway show next Tuesday (10Nov15), but cancelled with just days to search. Sources towards the star claim Rihanna didn’t feel confident about showcasing the previously unheard music, so didn’t appear in the New York event.
“She’s still taking care of some stuff and (the music activity) isn’t to some extent where she’d like to perform it,” an origin told Page Six. “Things are meant to be further along, but she’s still not ready.”
While some insiders claim the pad isn’t yet finished, other sources insist Rihanna has a fresh track to execute. However, many experts have suggested how the 27-year-old star decided it absolutely was more important to go on working on all of her new album, so put that ahead of the fashion show.
“She gives you something to complete,” another source told the publication. “But the album isn’t finished yet, and finishing oahu is the priority. She couldn’t take time to rehearse and perform and handle the album. It just all didn’t get together.”
Rihanna has recently revealed the artwork and name of her upcoming eighth record, Anti, but a release date is indeed far not confirmed. Her father recently claimed that there had been a great deal of work to be practiced on the album, and that is her first release since 2012’s Unapologetic.
“Robyn just isn’t happy with the modern album,” Ronald Fenty told Britain’s The Sun newspaper. “She’s unpleasant with it. When she went above the songs she found every one of these little things she desired to change and was concerned about it. It’s a protracted process and isn’t easy.”
There have already been reports Rihanna will showcase new songs in a very special appearance on Saturday Night Live in another few months. The star is replaced on the Victoria’s Secret show by British singer Ellie Goulding. While Ellie has enjoyed success around the globe, insiders are believed to be to be disappointed that Rihanna had being replaced on the last minute. “She’s no Rihanna,” an origin added to Page Six.
“It is exactly what it is,” another insider commented. “It hasn’t seemed that anyone is upset. It’s business as usual. They’re just relieved that things are still moving and they are thrilled Ellie surely could pick the ball standing on such short notice. They’re pumped that she’s game.”
