Rihanna's Topless Moment
The singer strips off her top time and time again.
Remember when Rihanna posed topless for Esquire UK? Well, now you can see how that cover came to be — and more.

The singer’s photographer friend, Melissa Forde, has released a new series of behind-the-scenes shots on her personal blog documenting the 25-year-old’s journey to superstardom.

Aside from capturing the “Stay” crooner stripping down for her intimate shoot, Forde’s new photos also depict Rihanna out on various adventures, including shooting for an outdoor video.

Forde was also the photographer behind Rihanna’s big birthday blowout in Hawaii in February.

Besides snapping plenty of photos of RiRi flaunting her bikini bod, the photog also captured several intimate moments between Bajan beauty and her on-again, off-again beau, Chris Brown.

The couple were spotted holding hands during a seaside walk along the beach before canoodling at RiRi’s fete that night.

Since then, Rihanna kicked off her world tour in Buffalo, N.Y. but recently cancelled her Boston, Mass. concert due to laryngitis.

Launch the gallery above to get a glimpse into the fabulous life of RiRi — as documented by her BFF.
