Remember the days when pop singer Rihanna was wholesome and classy and would never strip for the cover of a national magazine just to sell records? Well, apparently those days are over.
Rihanna, 23, poses practically naked on the cover of this week's Rolling Stone magazine, which hits newsstands on Wednesday (Mar 30). The artsy photos were shot by famed photog Mark Seliger exclusively for RS.
Rihanna's management is still scrambling to dispute news stories that suggests Rihanna's tour is not selling well in the U.S. Why is it so hard to believe that she's not selling tickets here? It's no secret that here in the US Rihanna is known more for her looks than she is for her singing ability.
She may be hawt overseas, but here in the U.S., she simply doesn't pack huge arenas -- even if she poses half naked on magazine covers.
