We really thought Rihanna was opting for a subtler return to the spotlight, judging by her snoozy single, “FourFiveSeconds,” featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney. Thankfully, our girl still has some bad bitch left in her.
For the March ’15 cover of Harpers Bazaar, Princess RiRi takes an oh-so-casual dip with man-eating sharks. She even finds a comfortable seat in the mouth of an eight-foot Great White, making this nightmarish experience look completely painless. What else would you expect from the IDGAF songstress? The entire editorial apparently serves as a loose metaphor, reflecting Rihanna’s difficult life experiences.
“I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them,” Rihanna says in an interview with Harpers Bazaar. “In those cases I just have to handle them accordingly. But I do not swim with sharks… sharks swim with sharks.”
