With Beyonce taking center stage recently, the whole Inauguration thing and that super-dish thing she did, Rihanna probably feels a bit left out. The two hottest African-American musicians must have some love for each other, but I’m sure that there is also a bit of jealousy. Given Rihanna’s recent lack of attention, I would like to focus on my absolute favorite Nubian princess for a bit.
She just did a photoshoot with the renown Terry Richardson for Rolling Stone. I haven’t seen the magazine, but two official photos have been circulating. Today I come across a series of behind the scenes shots, probably originating on Terry’s Diary (although its down at the moment). Those shots are lower in the list, but I would also like to point out how absolutely hot Rihanna actually is. Photoshoot photos can be touched up, they have makeup artists and lighting specialists, so there is a bit of fakeness to them. Candid photos, on the other hand, are substantially more realistic (even though most celebs walk around with buckets for their makeup).
First, here are a few leggy candids of Rihanna as she wanders around Los Angeles. That tiny red dress of hers looks great! Not sure about that camo jacket, though
Next, lets take a look at our Nubian princess as she wanders around the set of her Stay music video. Given the fact that this is Rihanna, it is odd to see her getting out of a Lexus IS 200, I would have imagined something of a higher caliber … but what do I know?
Lastly, here are Rihanna’s Rolling Stone photos. We will start with the two officially released shots, and then move onto the Terry Richardson outtakes that are just making their way across the Internet. Personally, that second shot is by far my favorite. Although, the series of photos with Rihanna smoking a blunt is just amazing. I wonder if Rolling Stone have any intention of releasing those?
