Rihanna did not have to do us like this. (Picture: Vogue)Rihanna stepped out for a Vogue photo shoot to remind us exactly why she is celeb royalty.
A woman that slays in her nude underwear, deserves all the praise.
The singer took to the front cover of Vogue Australia May’ issue, which is on sale today, in some very epic shapewear and chunky bling to promote her lingerie range.
Matching her bodysuit with a huge coat, the Guava Island actor posed and showed off pieces from her popular Savage x Fenty Line.
Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Edwina McCann said: ‘As we celebrate Mother’s Day in Australia with our May issue, I find myself reflecting on just how important it is for our children to have role models they can look up to and be both inspired and guided by.
‘It feels fitting, then, that we have Rihanna for our May cover, a woman who is both fearless and influential. Off the back of her hugely successful music career Rihanna has forged her Fenty fashion and beauty empire and has also empowered women by celebrating diversity and showing that confidence comes in all shapes, skin types and sizes.’
Seriously the 31-year-old did not have to stunt like this, but she did.
Our wigs have been snatched (Picture: VOGUE)We really could have just done with a new album. The pictures are a great treat to fans, but her ninth studio album would really have done the trick.
Rihanna’s last album, Anti, was released in 2016 and it is safe to say a lot of people are suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
Of, course RiRi is busy being an entrepreneur and breaking records with Fenty – but fans are feeling very feverish waiting for R9.

The issue is out now (Picture: VOGUE)The star recently revealed she gave a friend’s baby the ‘first listen’ of her eagerly-awaited new album.
The Work singer took to Instagram to tease her 68.8 million followers with a picture of her close pal Jennifer Rosales little boy Joshua sat on the mixing desk.
Alongside the studio snap, Rihanna wrote: ‘Thank you @jennnrosales and @the_aa for blessing my day a lil mo [sic].’
His mum Jennifer added: ‘When tia @badgalriri gives you the first listen. #newmusic [sic]’
We have never been so jealous of a baby before.
One brave fan even told the singer they wanted an album, not make-up when Rihanna released a Fenty bronzer.
Obviously, the queen of clap backs replied with a hilarious response – ‘well, this is bronzer.’
We see what you’re doing Rihanna. Yes, we will pore over your make-up and your underwear line. But we will not forget that we’re due an album.
It is only fair at this point.
