While winter has most people thinking about layering up, that’s not the case for Rihanna and Keira Knightley who are taking-it-off for their December cover shoots. Rihanna strips down for GQ wearing only an undone cropped biker jacket for their “Men of the Year (and One Hot Woman)” issue photographed by Mario Sorrenti.
And the pop superstar lets GQ tag along for a night out where she talks about the complexity of creating craft, “Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery.”
The Bajan beauty also dishes about what turns her on saying, “I like to feel like a woman. I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead.” During her night out with the magazine, RiRi ends up getting cozy with her controversial ex, Chris Brown, and when writer Jay Bulger asks if Chris Brown’s other famous night out that ended in a bar brawl with fellow hit-maker Drake was really over Rihanna, the singer pleads the fifth saying : “There’s no proof of that being for my love,” and, “That’s my answer to that question.”
Like RiRi, Allure’s cover girl Keira, is photographed, baring it all, by Mario Testino, and wears just a cropped sequined jacket strategically covering her bosom. And speaking of….the 27-year-old actress fills us in on the secret to picture perfect breasts. “They always pencil in my boobs. I was only angry when they were really droopy. For King Arthur, for a poster, they gave me these really strange droopy t**s….I thought, well if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts.”
The Anna Karenina star also dispels those eating disorder rumors. “The anorexic stuff–all of that–it’s always going to have an impact, so I think it did hit pretty hard . Because you go, oh, maybe that’s right! I knew I wasn’t anorexic, but maybe my body is somehow not right.” As for being a feminist Keira says, “I am a feminist, but I clearly objectify myself – so that right there is a total contradiction to feminist principles.”
