Rihanna has been named as the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire Magazine. She graces the cover of next month’s issue of the magazine and did a photo shoot where she poses completely nude, except for a few strategically placed pieces of seaweed.
In the accompanying interview, Rihanna opened up about her pre-show rituals, her stubborn eating habits and even talks a bit about her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown.
As the Sexiest Woman Alive, Rihanna says she doesn’t try to be sexy on stage. If it happens, it happens. Honestly, even if it comes across sexual ” it has to be a part of my subconscious thought ¦ I could see What’s My Name? “ the dancing is pretty sexy¦ But I don’t know. I guess people find different things sexy.
Before each show, the singer says she drinks a cup of tea with a shot of brandy or whiskey to help calm her nerves and give her some liquid courage. But when it comes to the rest of her taste buds, Rihanna admits that she is not very adventurous.
I’m very stubborn when it comes to food, Rihanna told Esquire. I don’t like to try new things. When I came to America, there were so many different cultures and tastes. I haven’t acquired a taste for a lot of things. Like, calamari? Jay-Z had to make me eat it. We have this thing called Taste Test Tuesdays or New Flavor Fridays or Substitute Saturdays.
The singer also revealed that she has moved passed the drama that surrounded her relationship with Chris Brown.
Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for awhile, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger, she admitted.
As Esquire’s new Sexiest Woman Alive, Rihanna is joining the likes of Minka Kelly, Kate Beckinsale, Halle Berry and Jessica Biel.
This year’s Sexiest Woman Alive issue also gave a shout-out to a few other sultry women like Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Emma Stone, Beyonce, and Brittany Snow.
Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive issue hits stands on October 16.
