Rihanna: W Magazine Cover Girl

by at . Comments

In February 2009, Rihanna reluctantly posed for a less then glamorous photo shoot down at the Los Angeles police station. She could barely open her eyes at the time.

What a difference a year makes.

Her relationship with Chris Brown is a thing of the past, she's got a new album out and climbing the charts, and RiRi is flat-out sizzling on the cover of W Magazine.

Of her new album, Rated R, she says it's fittingly titled.

"This was a different type of record for me. It was really personal; it was from me in the most authentic way. It’s like a movie, hence the title," Rihanna explains.

"When I was making this album, every day I was in a different mood. Sometimes I was pissed off, sometimes miserable. Every song brings out a different story.”

As with many Rihanna pictures we've come across lately, she looks pissed off, a little miserable and quite outrageous ... but hot! Click to enlarge ...
