On the January 2010 cover of GQ magazine, Rihanna donning nothing but short topless shorts, a couple pieces of jewelry and an alluring gaze. Check other photos from the gallery below after the jump.
For the accompanying cover story interview, which was done just after Rih spoke with Diane Sawyer and before it aired, she opened up about her relationship with her ex boyfriend and RnB-star Chris Brown — possibly a bit too much to the chagrin of her “hovering manager” as GQ correspondent Lisa DePaulo would dub her. She says they could possibly be friends again “in ten years,” but “I’m not depending on his friendship.”
Some of the newer things she reveals is how she never got the chance to graduate from high school, and finally takes on the hideous rumor that she has herpes. “It’s not true,” she said. “It’s a f*cking scar. On my lip. That’s there every day of my life.” She calls the rumors “ignorant,” but she still reads about it all because “I learn a lot from reading it. A lot.” [GQ via RihannaDaily]
