Esquire Magazine names Rihanna 2011’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” in their most recent issue. The publication snagged an interview with the songstress in which she talked about her sex symbol status, Chris Brown, and her pre-concert vices.
“At the end of a concert, I don’t feel like I’ve been this sexy thing,” Rihanna said. “Really, I don’t even think about it.”
On her abusive ex- boyfriend, the singer said she never wished him any harm.
“It’s incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he’s putting out. I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me,” she said. “It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.”
Rihanna also discusses soothing her pre-concert jitters with a drink.
“I have to have it. I take it very seriously, so there is a level of anxiety, always. I overthink everything when it comes to my job. The drink calms my nerves. I sip it while I watch the opening act from my dressing room. Sometimes I go out into the audience. I put on a really big hoodie and sneak out there.”
