Rihanna posed in next to nothing for GQ’s December 2012 issue.
The 24-year-old’s nonchalance toward nudity, partial or otherwise, has been pretty much well-documented (over and over and over again), so it’s obvious, RihRih is comfortable baring her soul for the camera.
But when you look at her what do you see? Rihanna recently explained what SHE sees when she looks at her nearly nude photos, stating:
“Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product,” the “Diamonds” singer told GQ.
“I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery.”

Starting Wednesday, Rihanna will embark on a seven-day tour promoting the record, “Unapologetic,” bouncing from Mexico City (November 14) to Toronto (November 15) to Stockholm (November 16) to Paris (November 17) before coming back to New York City the day after her album’s release.
Rihanna is in the driver’s seat of her career and public persona, a position that leads her to want to take the backseat when it comes to romance, she explains:
“I like to feel like a woman,” she said of her turn-ons. “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.”
Being in love, she continued, “makes you go places you probably wouldn’t ever go, had it not been for love. But I think everybody still has their limits.”
