Even For Rihanna These Are Extraordinary Pictures: Unapologetic By Name And Nature

Even by Rihanna’s risque standards, new pictures of the singer show she has no intention of being anything other then unapologetic.

Ahead of her performance on the UK’s X Factor final, two provocative images of the Bajan star were posted on Twitter by a friend of the singer.

Rihanna, who recently scored her first Billboard 200 number one with her latest album Unapologetic, almost bared all in the shots which were then uploaded to Instagram.

Photographed by her friend Melissa Forde, in one picture Rihanna holds a strategically placed glass of red wine while posing in a fur hood wrap with a cigarette in her mouth.

Underneath one of the pictures, the tag message reads:

“Sneak peak new photoshoot @rihanna #MTFphotography.”

In another racy image, the 24-year-old can be seen leaning back against a wall in a black lace bra while curling her feet on a fur rug. Underneath the second image, the message reads:

“Who needs fashion when there’s p**** @rihanna #MTFphotography.”

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for Rihanna.

In between topping the US chart with Unapologetic and releasing her latest hit single “Diamonds,” the singer recently jetted around the world in seven days with around 150 journalists for her “777 Tour” before Unapologetic was released.

Now back in a relationship with controversial singer-dancer Chris Brown, the pair have run amok on social media sites posting eyebrow raising pictures of each other.

Shortly after she appeared on German television show Wetten Dass on Saturday, Rihanna flew to Manchester, England for a performance on the X Factor final on Sunday.

Two weeks after she sang “Diamonds” in a water-drenched routine on the same television show, the star wowed the studio audience again when she sang “We Found Love” and delivered an emotive performance of the ballad “Stay.”
