Those who haven’t stopped nervously sweating since seeing Rihanna’s Man of the Year cover for the December issue of GQ will have a hard time getting work done today. It’s a day to reflect on the abundance of skin revealed during Rihanna’s photo shoot with the men’s magazine. As if her bottom-less cover wasn’t enough.
Through it all, Rihanna flirts with the idea of taking off her shirt, lifting the bottom just enough to flaunt the recent underboob tattoo she got in honor of her grandmother. Winking at the camera, she smiles her way through every touch-up and hair adjustment, suggesting all of the time it takes to get her stage-ready really is worth it. Brave soldiers who suffered through seven days on the Rihanna Plane: this is the intimacy you were hoping for.
