Rihanna. Ask any man in the world his top 5 hottest women, and that name will wrangle one of the first 3 spots.
The Bajan beauty was appropriately tapped by GQ for their final issue of the year, the one that commemorates the time around which we are all expected to give up our vices to make it on Santa’s nice list.
The cover features 24-year-old Rihanna completely in the nude, artfully covering her lady parts with a leather jacket draped over her shoulders.
Even though Rihanna is no stranger to posing nude, images of her glowing tattooed skin seems to be something the masses can’t get enough of.
In the corresponding cover article titled “Rihanna: Obsession of the Year” Rihanna talks about everything from her time in the spotlight, to the infamous fight between Chris Brown and Drake.
Check out some excerpts from the cover story below:
On her fame:
“Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery. “
On why she didn’t tattoo her face the night prior to the interview:
“The tattoo artist said nope, I’m not gonna do it,” she says, “because if you’re looking at your face, it’s right there staring at you.”
On her sex appeal:
“That comes from my culture. That’s just the way it’s always been, and I think that for people, especially in America, they make it like the forbidden fruit, but that only makes kids more curious. I was a lot more naive about the way I moved and the way I was being perceived. The more you hear people talk about ‘Oh, you’re a sex symbol,’ it just makes you think, ‘Why are you saying that?’ And I figured it out.”
On how she is in relationships:
“I like to feel like a woman. I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead. I could absolutely be dominant, But, in general, I’d rather… How do I say this in like a…non-X-rated version?”
And finally, Rihanna speaks on the fight between Chris Brown and Drake at W.I.P Nightclub in New York City:
“There’s no proof of that being for my love. That’s my answer to that question.”
Yikes! Looks like RiRi has no interest in bringing up old love battles.
