Rihanna Covers 'W Magazine' February 2010

Rihanna sizzles in Gucci’s cotton dress with sexy cut-outs on the February 2010 cover of W Magazine, as captured by Craig McDean and styled by Lori Goldstein. Here’s what the 21-year-old “Rated R” singer spilled to the mag:

On the best part of her day: “When I’m with my glam team getting my hair and makeup done—we talk so much s—!”

On her fashion sense: “My stylist Mariel Haenn and I always try to do something sexy but never too girly—we always try to put a little toughness in there.”

On never once wishing herself back in Barbados, living a quiet life: “Oh no, I never fantasize about that. Because if I were back there, I know I’d be fantasizing about all this.”

  • enoughalready

    She looks older than 21, this chick is used all the He** up now! and as usual she is doing her best look at me pose.. A snap away from being naked cause that’s all she now have to offer and people are tired of it…

    Rihanna has single handed taken the imagination out of her self… This chick is so boring anymore and along with that terrible voice!

  • janice

    Well, she can’t be too boring since people are “wasting” their time commenting on her. She looks nice on the cover.

  • ,,,,

    What a demure and well spoken lady. Yeah, right.

  • WTF

    WTF did she do to her hair?

  • Dani

    @janice: I don’t think she’s boring but her style is garish. She looks very harsh on the cover. It’s not flattering at all.

  • pavlo

    she is 21? birth certificate please!

  • janice

    @ Dancie I get what your saying but W is a high fashion magazine and that doesn’t always mean the most flattering style, especially high fashion, it’s not supposed to be mainstream it’s supposed to be kind of out there for better or worst.

  • janice

    @Dani Sorry I misspelled, I think I combined your name and mine. ;-)

  • meme

    Rihanna looks like Dionne Warwick’s daughter.

  • rick

    @good girl: She does actually but I don’t find trannies bad looking just different. There’s a cable documentary on them and Rihanna resembles them.

  • AutumnM

    People on this site can hate all they want, but Rihanna looks great here! Beautiful, as well as sexy. I wish I had her legs and skin. She has some of the best legs i’ve ever seen.

  • bajan

  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    ridiculously amazing body.

  • Cinn

    @AutumnM: That’s a matter of opinion though I do agree, she looks so much better here than in her red carpet photos. She should fire her stylist and use the W one. But the hair colour’s got to go!

  • black is beautiful

    @bajan: Are you paid by Rihanna’s mgmt team or something? It seems like you’re wasting a lot of time fighting with people over a celebrity you don’t know. Do you get money for this or do you do it for free?

  • Dane

    I don’t think the pictures are necessarily bad. They are just there; nothing to get excited about. I am quite tired of her being topless in almost every photo. I wish the concentration would be more on her music and improving her singing voice instead of “smut” pictures.

  • bajan

    @black is beautiful

    NAH RIs’ mgmt team DOESNT PAY ME IS YOUR MOMMA. THATS FINAL.

  • http://www.firemandatingsite.com/ firemandatingsite

    she is a freaky nasty girl!

  • black is beautiful

    @bajan: So, you just do it for free? That’s what I figured.

  • Allie

    @Lisa: Amen! Thank you for taking the words out my mouth! Rihanna has to prove that she is so tough. She needs to stop.

    Several quotes from the article on Rihanna in W magazine:

    “Though her dulce de leche skin is lineless and her eyes bright as a baby’s even after a long workday, it’s easy to forget that Rihanna is only 21 years old. Perhaps that’s because she has released four hit-filled albums in only four years, making her debut at age 17 seem aeons ago. Or maybe it’s that her performances are a paradigm of cool self-possession; in the video for “Run This Town,” the Grammy-nominated song she recorded with Jay-Z and Kanye West last year, her voice is so full and centered, her panache so effortless, that she makes the world’s biggest hip-hop stars seem little more than backup singers.

    LMAO!!! Oh, please! Probably the reason she makes hip-hop stars “seem little more than backup singers” is because RAPPERS CAN’T SING IN GENERAL! And neither can she! For the record, she’s an R&B/pop singer, not a hip-hop star, so you shouldn’t be comparing her to them. Oh, and the reason she doesn’t look 21 is because she looks like a 40-year-old tranny.

    “Now, however, she’s ready to open up, and her latest album, Rated R, released in November to impressive sales, proves that her silence wasn’t due to lack of insight or emotion. The record is a dissertation on her relationship with Brown and its bloody demise, and it has surprised reviewers who had written her off as a talented but manufactured pop sensation. ”

    Talented? According to whom? Yes, she’s a manufactured pop sensation, but she is NOT talented, that’s a fact that is universally known. Apart from Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, I can’t really name any manufactured pop sensation with actual talent.

    “For the first time, she was intimately involved with the lyrics, writing many of them herself and spending time with her collaborators (who included Jeezy, Justin Timberlake and Ne-Yo) explaining her emotions and working on translating them. ”

    Explaining to songwriters how you feel in order for them to write songs for you is not songwriting talent. You should actually be writing down your own emotions and transforming them into songs yourself. And sharing songwriting credit with 3-4 other people on a 3 minute song is not hardcore proof that she actually participated in the actual writing of the song. I looked up the track listing of her album on Wikipedia, and there is not a single song in which her name is the sole name that appears on the credit. Probably all she did to merit being listed in the credits was change one word in the song or come up with the title. NEXT!

    “Rihanna has professed an interest in acting, and her dance-filled videos of yore have given way, with this album, to videos in which she acts out wrenching mini dramas. A December appearance on Saturday Night Live proved she has comedic chops, too—“Shy Ronnie,” the digital short she made with SNL cast member Andy Samberg, became a viral phenomenon on the Web. ”

    OK, several problems with this quote. First, “dance-filled videos”? Really? She’s famous for NOT dancing to her own music! All she does is walk around, she has backup dancers to create the visual interest. And what comedic chops? Andy Samberg made the skit, Rihanna was just there putting her nasal, Autotuned, monotone voice to good use, but that’s it.

    Does she like it raw in the third input?

  • Lilac

    I love her music but when she talks she does not sound too intelligent.

    @Lisa: What a crappy thing to say-what if someone you were in love with chose to lose his temper and beat you? Don’t give me this crap about not being with soemone that would hit you because you never know. I think that is rather inconsiderate coming from another female. No person deserves to be battered no matter how you feel about them. Let’s put our thinking caps on people. God bless.
