Esquire has let it be known that if you’re standing under Rihanna’s umbrella or lying next to her on a California king sized bed than you’re up close and personal with the sexiest woman alive.
Rihanna is taking this news, like most things that come across her pop landscape, in stride. She knows that sexuality is a part of her persona but for the vast majority of the time it’s just on a subconscious level.
“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.”
I think the fact that she does her thing and sexiness just comes out in a very natural way is part of why the Barbados born performer is so titillating. She did acknowledge that at least part of her live show calls for some in your face hotness.
“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.”
I’m going to assume that the following photo is part of that demarcated “sex” portion! This was taken during her performance at the O2 Arena in London back in May.
The inevitable subject of her ex Chris Brown came up and girl took the high road in the interview. She told Ross McCammon:
“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.”
The ability to move on and do your own thing and the unshakable power of forgiveness is attractive too. For Rihanna she has the beautiful mix of natural and purposeful sexiness. I wouldn’t argue with Esquire’s nod.
