Not surprising to most, Rihanna is at it again tweeting nude photos via Twitter and Instagram. These are professional photos taken by photographer Mario Sorrenti for a Lui magazine spread however. The French adult entertainment magazine is known for its full frontal nudity and provocative photos. Created in 1963 they wanted to create a men’s magazine with some class, and was massively successful through the early 1980’s. After that their soft porn type publication lost their audience. In the mid to late 1980’s the French attempted to revive the magazine but again stopped publishing in 1994. It has been re-designed through the newest owner Jean-Yves Le Fur as a classy up scale mens magazine and started publishing again on September 5, 2013.
Rihanna will certainly get the readership up with these photos that are not only erotic but are very well done. Tweeting late Tuesday afternoon, she has everyone talking again. She is a beautiful young woman who is not afraid to show her body. Show her body she does, as she graces the cover showing everything from the waist up. She is also proud of her body, as everyone should be proud of their bodies, and has set her nude photos up as her Twitter profile pictures. Not everyone is so confident as the bold Miss Rihanna tweeting nude photos for the world to see.
The Lui magazine has followed closely along the guidelines of Playboy, or visa versa, depending on who you are talking to, by having in-depth articles along side gorgeous naked women. Many french actresses have been in the magazine like Brigette Bardot and Mireille Darc, and now this beautiful songstress. She is not only drawing the attention of her fans, but of her peers also, Lady Gaga tweeted “Hot”, and I am sure more will weigh in, the longer the pictures are up. She is just another of her generation that takes advantage of social media and gets people talking.
At just 26 she has made a name for herself as an artist, musician and clothes designer. Quite a lot on her plate for someone so young, but she makes it look effortless. She was born in Barbados, and her career started with producer Evan Rogers in 2003. As her mentor he got her to produce a number of demo tapes and sent them to several record companies until she ultimately signed with Def Jam Recordings. After auditioning for Jay-Z, the president of the record label, she was a shoe in, and history was in the making
She is no stranger to adversity and what some call bad public image, as she will post photos on a whim, not caring what others think of her, and only being true to herself. Although any publicity is not necessarily good, as evidenced from her sad relationship with Chris Brown to Twitter pictures of her smoking marijuana. Her fans adore her for her talent and her big bold voice that is unmistakable when on the radio. So whether Rihanna is tweeting nude photos or singing in concert, her fan base is firmly in place and behind her 100 percent.
