Turns out Rihanna is Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive this year after all. Last month a promo video, which touted the honor and featured a naked RiRi rolling around in dirt, leaked. Soon after, however, it was reported that she was just one of the sexiest women breathing on Planet Earth. But here’s the November cover of the mag, declaring the truth. Head below to read the “We Found Love” singer’s somewhat surprising comments about ex Chris Brown from her cover story.
Esquire spends much of the piece talking about just how sexy chart queen Rihanna is. The magazine describes a recent Long Island concert reads, “She wears a shiny blue raincoat, a jewel-encrusted bikini peeking out of it,” while an up-close run-in backstage reveals that: “she smells like coconut and vanilla. In her pink, orange, and yellow platform heels, she stands six two, easy.”
But the real eye-opener for some will no doubt be her comments about Chris Brown, Rihanna’s relationship with whom ended violently in 2009.
Says the singer:
“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. 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.”
At the end of the day, it was Rihanna’s relationship, and she’s free to reflect upon it however she chooses. And it’s probably a plus that she’s been able to let go of the anger and move on.
What do you think of her comments about Chris Brown? Do you agree with the props she gave him in a national magazine like Esquire?
