It might have been more of a shock if she’d decided to keep her clothes on. But with a body like hers, pop star Rihanna can hardly be blamed for stripping off at every opportunity. And what better place to show off her curves than the front cover of upmarket U.S. men’s magazine GQ?
The Barbadian singer, 24, posed completely naked, with just a jacket flung over her shoulders, for the publication’s December 2012 issue.
A strategically placed shadowed arm kept Rihanna from losing her modesty, but there was plenty still on show. Her collection of tattoos could be seen, while she wore her cropped hair simple and flat against her head.
Asked by the magazine what turns her on, Rihanna explained that she likes the man to be in charge in her relationships.
‘I like to feel like a woman,’ she said.
‘I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, 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 she added: ‘Love makes you go places you probably wouldn’t ever go, had it not been for love. But I think everybody still has their limits.’
For now Rihanna is single, following the end of her reported rekindled romance with Chris Brown.
