The latest issue of GQ magazine features Rihanna posing topless on the front cover
Her edgy image regularly sees her on the style pages of magazines, but this time Rihanna has really gone and done it, posing topless on the cover of GQ.
Wearing nothing but a pair of leather hotpants and some jewellery, the singer appears on the January issue of the magazine with her arms strategically placed over her chest.
Doesn't she know it's cold outside?
When asked who helped her through the ordeal, she answered: 'Nobody. Really, just the music. And working. I really didn't want to be around anybody, for them to stare at me and stuff, and feel sorry for me.'
'I just stayed in the house a lot. Then I started to get cabin fever. I was like, 'I'm going crazy in here.''
But she revealed she did eventually seek support from friends and colleagues, in particular her mentor Jay-Z.
'Me and Jay-Z, we have a very close relationship,' she told the magazine, 'So he was helping me through it and giving me advice and guidance, and just words of support. Like, strength.'
