"Every woman should have naked pictures taken. In five years my body might not look like this!" the Sun quoted Rihanna, as saying. She added: "I've always been borderline raunchy and a little sexy. But sexy at 19 and sexy at 21 is two different things. I'm just having fun."
And the 21-year old hitmaker spelt out the reason for her newfound confidence. She said: "When naked pictures I'd sent to a boyfriend were leaked this year I was so nervous and embarrassed that my mom was going to see them. But she reacted in the most surprising way. She just sent me a text saying, 'You're an adult now'. Basically saying, 'Welcome to the real world'. She says I'm a woman now so I have to handle things like an adult."
