Rihanna, who is quickly becoming a bankable fashion icon, has been tapped by Victoria’s Secret to headline a performance at its annual fashion blowout in New York City. She’ll sing her latest song, love ballad “Diamonds.”
Rihanna will give the show an edgier urban feel without straying too much outside of pop music.
