Rihanna causes a stir on video shoot.
She wants feel like the only girl in the world, and now Rihanna is officially the sexiest according to Esquire.

The R&B beauty has earned the magazine’s much-coveted title for 2011, posing naked for a barely-printable photo shoot that involves an ample amount of dirtiness — literally. In the photos and accompanying video of the shoot, Rihanna poses and rubs dirt all over her body, covering up only the areas of her body that need to be cloaked in order for the magazine to hit newsstands without a plastic wrapper.

Rihanna even detailed how she picks a fan out of the crowd for her infamous on-stage lapdance routine, telling Esquire:

The way I pick the person is, whoever I feel doesn’t take themselves too seriously, or who I think would be majorly embarrassed about it. Like these old men… it’s hilarious. At first, it was just going to be girls. And then one night, I brought up a gay guy, and then I started bringing up straight guys. Then I started bringing up older straight men. Did you see the one who was getting way too comfortable?

She goes on to say that her energy is so high after a concert, she is “in fishnets and nothing else for like half an hour … It has a lot to do with the audience. Their energy is undeniable. You get off stage, and it’s like crying and laughing at the same time. It’s hard to turn it off when I leave stage.”

RiRi also dished that she has no ill will towards her ex Chris Brown. In fact, she’s a big fan of his music! 

I really like the music he’s putting out. I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me…It was too much anger. I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.
