You'd think she'd need high levels of self confidence to bare all like she does, but to Rihanna, the act of getting naked is what gives her that boost in the first place.
"The more I got naked, the more comfortable I felt," she tells Britain's Women's Fitness magazine. "I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong."
"You can always find something that you’re uncomfortable with ... one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it."
Following some early-on insecurity, the pop star explains:
"After a while, it was like, 'What’s the worst that can happen?' I just started being a little more daring with it. It was all about just knowing my body."
"It is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes."
Although shedding her attire on a regular basis has had a beneficial outcome for her image, Rihanna admits, "My way probably won't work for most people."
Probably a good point. As long as the preponderance of Rihanna nude photo spreads and Twitpics continues, her way certainly works for fans.
