Elle Features Rihanna Q&A for September 2014

Posted Thursday August 21, 2014 3:09 PM GMT

Always happy to share her thoughts, Rihanna discussed her pick for the world’s sexiest woman in the September 2014 issue of Elle magazine.

The “Umbrella” singer told the popular publication that in her opinion there’s one female who stands out as the hottest of them all.

“Penélope Cruz is the sh*t,” declared Rihanna when asked for the world’s sexiest woman. “If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great. Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman’s Pulp Fiction character] is gangsta. She’s epic. I’m going to do that bob again. Those bangs.”

As for her words to live by, the Barbadian pop star noted, “‘Avoid obviousness.’ That is a quote by Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s what makes you create something, that’s the excitement, that’s the thrill.”

And when it comes to a must-have-at-all-times beauty product, Rihanna’s choice is- “Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid—they won’t notice when you’re not.”
