Rihanna has been ridiculously busy in recent months, and her figure has shrunk as a result.

The 24-year-old singer has been travelling the world promoting Battleship, performing to fans and working on her seventh CD, and it's all taken its toll on her famous curves.

Speaking about her hospitalisation following the Met Ball last month, Rihanna explained in an interview with Us Weekly published yesterday: "I got no sleep [beforehand]. It's harsh on your body!"

Rihanna added: "I'm a size 0 - and not happy about it! I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back!"

Well said.

Rihanna's fans have expressed concern that her shrinking frame and hospitalisation are a sign she's dealing with something more serious, but Rihanna says it's just her non-stop schedule.

It sounds like that's not going to let up much any time soon, as Rihanna added: "I want to do two more [movies] before touring again next year. My schedule is crazy!"

Rihanna's body has been the subject of even more speculation recently, when it was claimed she used a body double to film boobs and bum close-ups for her Armani ads.

The singer angrily denied the rumours on Twitter, just like she denied earlier claims that she'd cancelled her trip to London this summer due to ill health.

To further prove her point that she's just taking time out, a gorgeous make-up-free RiRi posted a video to her fans yesterday where she apologised for her lack of social networking, explaining she's spending time with her grandma. She added: "I miss you guys".

We miss you too!
