You saw it here on HipHollywood first, but the topless photo shoot with Rihanna and British super model Kate Moss has been OFFICIALLY released by V Magazine.
Pictures from the steamy shoot had been leaked back in November and tweeted by Rihanna…who, at the time, did not know that the photos had been hacked out of an insider’s computer. Rihanna later removed the photos when she learned their source, and told V Magazine:
“I posted them because I was so excited. I was so bummed because I thought they were so sick. It goes to show how badly people wanted this cover. I guess it was as big a deal to them as it was to me!”
In the interview, Rihanna also revealed that it was Moss who approached her about the photo shoot, prompted by her 10 year old daughter Lila Grace (who is a huge Rihanna fan). Proving that even a rock star with 7 hit albums and 59 million Facebook followers has the right to get a little star struck now and then, Rihanna gushed:
“I was dying on the inside. All my fantasies were coming true all at once: Mario, V (Magazine), Kate Moss. I was like, This is an amazing threesome!”
