Rihanna decided to hang up the barbwire and dark ethereal look and instead go for a more friskier vibe in her latest photo shoot to promote her upcoming “Rated R” album. It appears the singer will showcase many sides on her upcoming CD- a good girl side and a very bad girl side. Def Jam confirmed earlier this week that there will be two versions of the “Rated R” album released- a clean version and an explicit version. This is an obvious departure from the Rihanna of old- the singer who was marketed as a safe choice for tweens, teens and even pre-teens.
On the more positive side of things. Rihanna will be honored next week as one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year.
Congrats to her.
