Singer Rihanna showcased her sleek, gym-toned physique in a sizzling photo spread for the February/March 2013 issue of Complex magazine.
Rihanna, who has posted over 230 self-portraits on Instagram (most of them in the nude, topless or in a bikini), confesses she loves having her picture taken. And why not? She's young, fit and gorgeous.
“It’s narcissistic, but whatever. Everyone does it,” says Rihanna. “I’m capturing personality. Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek.”
The 5-foot-8 Rihanna, who's a size zero, is also happy to show off the results of her rigorous workouts.
"Cardio is the key, a lot of running on the treadmill," she said. "I have a personal trainer who travels with me if we have a big event coming up. I work out every day but I need a trainer to motivate me."
Rihanna, who used to weigh 133 pounds and fluctuated between a size two and four, slimmed down to a size zero last year due to a hectic work schedule. Unlike most women, the Barbados-born beauty claims she's not happy about losing her curves.
"I'm a size zero, and not happy about it," she said. "I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back."
