It’s the 25th anniversary of the British variant of GQ magazine. In observance of that milestone, none other than Rihanna—as shot by artist Damien Hirst—is appearing on the cover.
The theme for the photo shoot would appear to be “Medusa,” with Rihanna posing with snakes in her hair as well as a larger snake coiled around her neck. You have to respect Rihanna for posing with live snakes like this, as most would probably opt for something a little safer for a photo shoot.
The 25th anniversary issue British GQ should be coming out in the next couple weeks, but you can check out the Damien Hirst photos of Rihanna in the gallery up top.
