Rihanna’s naked truth
Rihanna has landed on the cover of the latest issue of UK’s Women’s Fitness Magazine.
She was dubbed the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine and recruited by Vogue magazine to front its 10th annual shape issue last year.
But the Barbadian beauty Rihanna, 24, has revealed that for years she didn’t feel comfortable in her own skin. And taking a typically unconventional approach she said she found the more time she spent naked, the more able she was to tackle her confidence issues.
‘The more I got naked the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear,’ she revealed to Women’s Fitness magazine.
The songstress has sold more than 25 million albums and 60 million singles worldwide making her one of the best selling artists of all time. And this spring she is set to take on her first acting role in the action thriller Battleship alongside Taylor Kitsch and Liam Neeson.
She added: ‘You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it. After a while, it was like, “What’s the worst that can happen?” and I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body is the way it is no matter what that helped me, knowing that it is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes.’ But she admits that her confrontational tactic might not work for everyone, adding: ‘My way probably won’t work for most people.’
