ESQUIRE: RIHANNA NAMED SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVE

>Esquire magazine has just named Rihanna the Sexiest Woman Alive in 2011.

“At the end of a concert, I don’t feel like I’ve been this sexy thing,” Rihanna says in the men’s mag’s cover story on her. “Really, I don’t even think about it.”

Her nude cover shot would seem to suggest otherwise, but she has more to discuss than her perfect bod and obvious sex appeal. The highlights:

On listening to Chris Brown’s music: “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. 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.”

On keeping her Barbadian fans happy: “I’m always representing Barbados. All over the world, no matter what I was doing, no matter what I achieved, no matter what award it was, I always shouted them out. So, I started making them feel like, ‘This is our girl. If people in the U.K. could get this excited about her, what’s wrong with us?'”

On drinking to soothe herself pre-concert: “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.”
