As for Rihanna's delayed LP, her father Ronald Fenty recently revealed the star is "worried" she hasn't brought out an album for three years, since 2012's 'Unapologetic'.

Ronald - claims to have heard 26 song she has recorded for the album - previously said: "Robyn is not happy with the new album. She's not comfortable with it. When she went over the songs she found all these little things she wanted to change and was worried about it. It's a long process and isn't easy.

"It's been three years now since her last album and she wants this to blow everything else away, no competition, because she's calling it her 'first album.' "

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Kendall Jenner will be walking at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show alongside Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge.
