Temperatures may’ve just begun rising in some places but now thanks to this new V Magazine cover featuring a super-blonde Rihanna, it’s feeling like straight-up high 90-mid-July up in here!


Rihanna covers the May edition of V Magazine Issue 95, rocking no shirt, a Versace bathing suit bottom, and matching bright aqua eyeliner. Oh, and her hair is super platinum blonde — though it’s probably only a wig.

Shot by famous photographer Steven Klein, styled by queen Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Rihanna is showcasing not only lots of sex appeal but also looking like she’s enjoying a number of summer’s finest activities, including sitting in a pool, eating a popsicle, and lots of sunbathing.

Though the magazine spread is not all about the sex or fashion, in an excerpt from the interview, Rih reveals a lot about how busy she’s been, including the fact that she’s been working on not one, but two albums! She says:

I didn’t actually take time off. The past two years are the hardest I’ve ever worked. I’ve been working on two albums, an animated film, shooting for multiple magazines, designing for Puma and Stance [socks], a new line of fragrances, a summer tour, I launched my first annual Diamond Ball at the end of last year, and I’ve also been developing several projects to be revealed in the near future.

While we know she’s starred in the latest Disney/Pixar movie “Home,” covered basically every magazine on Earth, is collaborating with Puma & serving as Puma’s Brand Ambassador but also for Dior as well, and has released a number of fragrances, the two albums top Rihanna’s list of being super busy.


But some sad news — full issue is not out yet and only some photos have been released. (Awww) The issue will be out on May 7, but you can pre-order it now on V’s site.
