Rihanna has lots of reasons to smile this week. The singer has garnered another #1 hit with new single “We Found Love”, she recently released the artwork for her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk, and now Esquire has named the Bastian beauty ‘The Sexiest Woman Alive’. In the cover story the singer also addresses her ex Chris Brown and being happy for his success.
What are your thoughts, do you like these covers?
Here’s the Esquire cover sure to have tongues wagging. She goes comando!
As you are well aware, Rihanna was violently attacked two years ago by then boyfriend Chris Brown but has decided to put the past in the past. In the issue she says,
It’s incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he’s putting out. I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.
On Being Sexy In Her Shows
At the end of a concert, I don’t feel like I’ve been this sexy thing. Really, I don’t even think about it.
Unless it’s a song that really calls for it, like “Skin” or “S&M,” or when I cover “Darling Nikki.” There’s a section that’s called “Sex” in the show, which is the obvious section for sexuality.
Like, really? Honestly, even if it comes across sexual — it has to be a part of my subconscious thought. It’s never deliberate in the rest of the show. I don’t even really… I could see “What’s My Name?” — the dancing is pretty sexy. “Rude Boy.” But I don’t know. I guess people find different things sexy.
