Rihanna channels Greek mythological character Medusa as she graces the cover of British GQ 25th Anniversary Issue. The "Diamonds" singer teamed up with Damien Hirst for the cover. The "two creative firebrands embarked on an art project the like of which has never been seen before," the magazine says.
The photo, which was shot by Mariano Vivanco, shows the singer going topless, covering her chest with her forearms. Small snakes with various colors cover her hair, while a big snake is around Rihanna's neck. Rihanna excitedly shared the photo on her Instagram. "Medusa head on me like I'm 'luminati!!!! She. x Damien Hirst #GQ #25thAnniversary #COVER," she captioned the snap.
Another photo which she uploaded on Instagram shows her posing seductively, biting a finger. A snake is on her head. Another photo, meanwhile, shows Rihanna closing her eyes with her mouth open. The snake reaches some part of her face.
The singer is currently on her "Diamonds" tour. She is scheduled to perform in the Dominican Republic on Saturday, October 26. The magazine is out on October 31.
