RIHANNA was recently crowned Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine, so she took it upon herself to prove them right by stripping naked and posing in a couple of very sensual photos for the magazine’s November issue.

Does she deserve her new title? You be the judge:

Rihanna obligingly showed off her gorgeous curves in her steamy photo shoot with Esquire magazine. In addition to posing provocatively, the Barbadian singer was also completely naked, except for a couple of well-placed leaves, twigs and other earthy materials.

Now you may think that RiRi’s daring nude photos are already pretty shocking, but the singer’s accompanying interview also packs a lot of punch as far as shock value is concerned, because she talks almost fondly about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who made celebrity news headlines when he physically assaulted her back in 2009. Rihanna says:

“It’s incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he’s putting out. I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan.”

Of course, it’s not all warm and fuzzies. She adds:

“Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.”
