Rihanna Strips Down in Esquire UK

By KATE MORAWETZ

Rihanna gives the July cover of Esquire UK a double dose of sexy with the songstress stripping down in a revealing pose.

The magazine released the official cover along with more photos of the Battleship star squaring off with the camera in barely-there garments and dog tags for the military-inspired shoot.

The Barbados-born singer speaks out on fame, her relationship with ex Chris Brown and where she sees herself in five years - and fans might be surprised at what she has to say!

“This is something I’ve learned to ignore,” RiRi says of the nature of fame. “This is what I do. I live my life and they document it. A lot of things I don't care for people to know, but it just is. That's what it's become."  But the singer does clearly enjoy making parts of her life public, often sharing photos of herself on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.

Rihanna also says she is surprised with the reaction to her collaboration with ex Chris Brown: "I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together... but I didn't think it was a bad thing, you know?  In my mind, it was just music."

And in case you were wondering whether those rumours were true, RiRi says she is still looking for her perfect man. She tells Esquire that five years from now she’ll “hopefully have a man by then. I’ve gotta start there, right? But how far I go [with my career] is God’s plan. I’m just following through my destiny. I don’t think it ever ends. It just evolves.”
