Rihanna Heats Up V Magazine’s Summer Issue

Hot damn. Rihanna turns up the temperature in the summer issue of V Magazine. The “American Oxygen” singer goes topless, showing off her assets in a platinum blonde wig and blue panties on the cover, which reads: “The rapturous return of pop’s ultimate bad gal.”

In the colorful shoot by fashion photographer Steven Klein, RiRi drapes herself in a yellow fur while catching some rays in front of a Mobil fuel tank, and sips from a plastic cup, strategically placed over her breast. Donning a pink newsboy cap, she sucks a popsicle and channels a sexy Stepford wife while lounging in the pool.

She also speaks about her upcoming eighth album, which is being executive produced by Kanye West. “Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James,’ joint is on constant repeat,” she said. “[The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”

When asked about privacy, she told V, “Do I even give a dick about that anymore?”
