Rihanna is more than comfortable flaunting her body to the public but the singer has not always been this confident. So what is Rihanna’s secret to achieving a positive body image? Get naked.
“My way probably won’t work for most people…but the more I got naked the more comfortable I felt,” Rihanna stated.
The suggestive singer has developed a daring fashion sense over the years and her clothing choices do not always leave much up to the imagination. Spotted rocking sheer tops and barely-there evening gowns, Rihanna has made it clear that she is not afraid to show off her assets.
“After a while, it was like ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body…is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes,” the 24-year-old explained.
Before discovering how to feel good naked, the Barbadian celeb admitted that she critiqued her shape and wasn’t as comfortable stripping down.
“I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it—you feel like everybody can see what you see,” Rihanna revealed.
Although there is a collection of haters, Rihanna lives life by her own rules. However, despite the Grammy winner’s confidence and fearless attitude, she does find the criticism hard to deal with at times.
“I stand up for what I believe in and a lot of the time that can be against people’s opinion, but that’s the hard thing to do, it really is sometimes,” Rihanna said. “Especially if the majority doesn’t agree.”
Many may oppose her risqué fashion sense and Twitter photos but Rihanna’s self-assurance and boldness is what makes her one of the most idolized artists in the world.
