Rihanna has managed to make interacting with sharks actually appealing and somehow sexual.
In a new spread for Harper’s BAZAAR’s March issue, the pop star poses in a series of swimsuits while having some fun with sharks. From swimming with them, to getting eaten by one, Bad Gal RiRi is showing the true definition of fearless and lustful.
In one photo, the singer poses seductively while positioned inside a shark’s mouth. The 26-year-old stuns in a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Design stiletto sandals and a $950 gold Chanel halter one piece swimsuit.
For the spread, Rihanna actually jumped in a tank to swim with three eight-foot predators. This all for the 40th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller, Jaws. “I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them, and in those cases I just have to handle them accordingly,” Rihanna told mag. “But I do not swim with sharks…sharks swim with sharks.”
She also admitted that the film spooked her as a kid. “It freaked me out because I was a beach baby, so every time a new Jaws came out I would take months off from the beach or just sit on the sand. If I happened to get in the water, my dad would hum the theme music, and I was right back out of it. But that was really my fault because I was obsessed with Jaws. Steven Spielberg was my childhood hero.”
On the cover of the publication which hits newsstands on February 17, the star leaves the sharks behind and poses in a gold, Balmain Paris jumpsuit.
