It appears that Rihanna has taken a queue from the bucket list we wrote this spring: there are new semi-nude photos of her floating around online again. And she doesn’t seem to mind. Why? Because she looks good in them.
Late last week, MediaTakeout published some new cellphone pics of Rihanna scantily clad. And then a fan of Rihanna’s decided to ask her straight up if they were her. Was Rihanna embarrassed? Doesn’t look like it. Rather than ignore the tweet, she responded, saying that yeah, that was her “When I was skinny!”
Good for Rihanna! If you’re going to send your boyfriend sexy pics of yourself, you’ve got to be prepared for other people to see them. Especially when you’re a celebrity, any nakedness that can get out, will get out. So why not own your photos?
That’s exactly what our own Kat Rosenfield recommended last year:
“Your body is beautiful. Really, it is. And it doesn’t matter whether you’re plump or slender, reedy or Rubenesque; your whole self — top to toe — deserves its day in the spotlight… And when you see those photos in the days, months and years that follow, it’ll be with a lasting appreciation for your body as the glorious, gorgeous machine it is.”
Besides, if we had to rank glorious body machines, Rihanna would be pretty close to the top. So good for her.
