Could it be that Rihanna isn't a fan of Girls?
The music supervisor for the hit HBO series Manish Raval revealed to Radio.com that the Barbadian beauty's song "Talk That Talk" was eyed for a major scene during Season 2. Specifically, the scene where Hannah, sporting a bright yellow mesh top sans bra, and her roommate Elijah (Andrew Rannells), attend a party while high on cocaine.
Raval explained that Icona Pop's tune "I Love It" was used instead, and now the upbeat track is a smash hit and is known for its use in this notable sequence.
"You know, honestly, I don't know," Raval said when asked if he knew the reason behind the crooner's decision to reject the offer. "They didn't give a reason, we didn't ask for a reason," he added. "So I can't speculate as to why, but you know, it's a happy accident. She said no and we happened to find the Icona Pop song."
And the rest is history.
Girls returns with a special two-episode premiere on Jan. 12 at 10 p.m. on HBO.
