Hot body No. 3
THERE ARE only two people in the world more sexy than Bajan superstar Rihanna, according to the latest edition of the magazine FHM.
They are N-Dubz singer Tulisa Contostavlos, 23, who came in at No. 1 and was presented with her award by the men’s magazine at an event held at London’s Proud Cabaret club, and former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, who last year was placed at No. 12 but is second this year.
Rihanna actually managed to stay in third spot, where she was voted in 2011.
Rihanna has proven repeatedly that she is no shrinking violet. From outlandish outfits to going topless, she has earned a style-icon status with her daring fashion sense and over a dozen tattoos.
She was dubbed the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine and recruited by Vogue magazine to front its 10th annual shape issue last year. RiRi has revealed that for years she didn’t feel comfortable in her own skin.
She added: “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.”
Just last month the 24-year-old entertainer made another list, Time’s 100 Most Influential People In The World, and was every bit the lady when she stepped out in a fierce fuchsia Marchesa dress at the Time 100 Gala held at Jazz at Lincoln Centre last Tuesday in New York City.
“Mumz surprised me for #TIME100,” Rihanna tweeted at the event, posting a picture of herself with Mama Fenty and Grandpa Fenty.
And yesterday she kept busy filming promos and doing a photo shoot in New York for her appearance on Saturday Night Live tonight. NFL quarterback Eli Manning hosts.
Rihanna’s new video for Where Have You Been just broke the Vevo record for most views of a video in 24 hours.
While there are rumours swirling that the 24-year-old entertainer will continue her acting career with a role in the upcoming Fast & Furious 6, she does not have plans to join the film.
“As far as I’m aware, this is not true,” her representative told MTV News. (NSH)
