Rihanna poses topless as she wraps herself in snakes to become Medusa for sexy photo shoot

Considering the amount of selfies this woman takes we’d have had her down as more of a Narcissus.

The 25-year-old star posed topless for GQ’s 25th anniversary issue, complete with a head of hair made entirely of snakes.

The Bajan beauty posed in nothing but a tiny pair of bikini bottoms with a snake draped around her body.

She completed the transformation with a pair of snake like contacts and silver high heels.

Which is a relief.

The excitable star tweeted a picture of the magazine cover which saw Damien Hirst take on the role of art director.

Rihanna tweeted alongside the picture: “Medusa head on me like I'm 'luminati!!!! She. x Damien Hirst #GQ #25thAnniversary #COVER”

Rihanna tweeted the front cover to her followers. Copyright [GQ] The ‘Stay’ singer has recently returned from a relaxing break in Greece where she was quick to share many a poolside picture.

In a snap that gave Miley Cyrus a run for her money, Rihanna could be seen twerking upside down in her bikini by an idyllic pool.

Which is what everyone does while on holiday, right?

The 25th anniversary special issue of British GQ is out on 31 October, priced £3.99. British GQ is also available on the iPad, Android and Kindle Fire.
