Here it is – our exclusive behind-the-scenes video of what must be Rihanna’s sexiest ever shoot.
Barbadian megastar Rihanna is one of the most beautiful women and most popular singers in the world, and now she’s the star of Esquire‘s July issue.
The Where Have You Been singer was shot for Esquire by acclaimed photographer Matt Irwin in East London (there’s a few outtakes from the shoot below), and here’s a taster video of what happened on the day.
IT’S hardly like we’re not used to her doing or saying something provocative.
Rihanna revealing that Cheryl Cole is so hot she’d like to watch her bending over and such like in a new interview with Esquire magazine, has even got us a little hot under the collar this Thursday morning.
The Where Have You Been songstress had us blushing as she spoke frankly about the Call My Name singer, basically saying she fancied Chezza and would like to watch her “cleaning things on the floor,” ooh err.
Speaking in a new, and darewesay, very kinky chat, she said: “Ooh! Cheryl Cole is…hot.
“I would just like to watch her work. Preferably cleaning things on the floor. Picking up stuff on the floor. Bending over.”
And just in case you didn’t get how much Ri Ri fancies Cheryl, she added: “She’s hot! I mean, literally…she’s so beautiful.”
What else is SERIOUSLY hot, are these hot pics of Rihanna flashing the flesh on the shoot.
In one, she dons a barely-there crochet bra, while in another she gives us a birds-eye view of her bottom in a cut-out swimsuit and army camouflage jacket.
During the interview, Rihanna also spoke about her working with her violent ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, insisting that while it did raise a few eyebrows, to her it was just music.
“I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together,” she mused.
“But I didn’t see how people could think it was a bad thing, you know? In my mind, it was just music.”
Rihanna, who is Cheryl Cole and a ton of other women’s top girl crush, said she’s learned to ignore the constant attention she faces.
She explained: “The attention is something I’ve learned to ignore. 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.”
And she believes that, thanks to Twitter, fans know who she really is and what’s true or not.
She said: “I talk to my fans one-on-one; social networking has allowed for them, to find out who I am.
“They put that together with the [tabloid] pictures and they know what’s real and what’s not.”
The star broke out into the movie biz earlier this year in Battleship, but she doesn’t plan to let it be a one-time thing.
“We’re going to start shooting a couple more movies starting right after Battleship comes out,” she told the magazine.
“One’s a comedy. There’s an action [film]. And there’s an animation.”
And while that ties Ri Ri up for the next few years, she’s hoping to have met the perfect partner by then.
“Five years? Hopefully I’ll have a man by then,” she grinned. “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.”
She also revealed details of the next few projects she’s working on – even branching out into comedy.
