Esquire dubs Rihanna 'Sexiest Woman Alive'

Esquire magazine has officially named Rihanna their 2011 Sexiest Woman Alive.

The 23-year-old Barbadian beauty poses for the November issue in nothing but patches of seaweed.

Of course, it's rare an interview where her ex, Chris Brown, doesn't come up. Despite their violent history, Rihanna says she’s put the past behind her and even calls herself a fan.

"It's incredible to see how he pulled out the way he did,” she says of Brown’s still-hot career. “Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know?"

The pop star says she even enjoys Chris’ work: "I really like the music he's putting out. I'm a fan of his stuff. I've always been a fan." She goes on to insist that she would "never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have."

The sultry singer is currently on a world tour promoting her fifth studio album, “Loud," and will release a new album, "Talk That Talk," in November.

Rihanna takes the Sexiest Woman crown from last year’s winner, Minka Kelly. Kate Beckinsale and Halle Berry have also held the title.

For more sexy seaweed pics, grab the November issue when it hits stands October 16.

    To all the haters and race baiters out there, no matter what color you are-I've been to poor little mountain towns in small countries where a ditchdigger's daughter would look like a goddess, have the humility and character of Mother Teresa and be the product of three races. I also had a white woman of Anglo-French descent in my life that shared the same virtues of aspect and character, as well as a Black one, God bless them all wherever they may be now. I have also lived and worked in a very racially-polarized and segregated Southeastern U.S. city where I thought that I my senses would fail and I would go deaf and blind for a lack of human beauty to dwell upon, physical or otherwise. Haters and supremacists, you're not all that, the rest of the world beats you by a mile. If there's one thing that I've learned in my third age, it's that there is NOTHING supreme under the sun, except life and love/respect/appreciation of it.

    She IS a hottie, but you'll see women like this walking left and right on the street every day in the Caribbean, Central America, Some parts of South America and I suspect North Africa and some parts of the Middle East. It's all a consequence of the mixing of White, Black and Asian or Amerindian bloods. So much for extolling the 'virtues' of racial purity and supremacy.

    Not the most beautiful woman alive...the most beautiful in R&B maybe...but I am surrounded by the most beautiful women on this planet on a daily basis. They are the female architects, designers, mothers, volunteers, writers, engineers, sisters, and healers (to name a few). Carrying on one's daily tasks with strength, ambition, grace, and mercy is the true definition to real beauty.

    Really? Rihanna? There are way, waaaay better choices in this stereotypical look going on. If she wants to get basically naked, she might as well go on playboy. Esquire needs to get their editors heads out of the sand and look for someone with real beauty instead of the fake pose, "I'm so hot" thing going on. You all know what I'm talking about. It just oozes ego and IF, and it's a BIG if, she has any class, she'd rethink doing this type of cover again. It cheapens her, it really does.

    Clearly, this ESQUIRE pick is based on more than just *looks*. She clearly has lobbyists who lobby to get her to win these kind of contests ... for publicity. I mean, next year it will be Katy Perry or Adele.

    I wonder how many scars she has from Chris brown that is covered-up with makeup and photoshopped out from her photos?

    I would hate to be named something "positive" in the media just to have cruel people determined to destroy it. She is a human being that none of you have ever met, yet you feel free to say the meanest things as if she is subhuman. I pray that no one ever reads the comments section to find such cruelty. You all need to go back to junior high where your bullying days were the highlight of your life. The United States is becoming a sick, evil society filled with fat people with meaningless lives.

    "Shes sucks at singing"

    Get over it. Some people find her attractive. Others don't. Just because she isn't your cup of tea doesn't mean she that other people don't enjoy her looks and style. She certainly isn't my favorite, but just like every other person in the world, she has her pros and cons.

    That said, I would vote for Kate Voegele. She is very pretty, naturally of course. Not to mention, she can sing and she plays her own instrument.

Once you've become slender with smooth skin, decent sized b reasts, and a willingness to participate in ki nk, you can't really 'rank' any higher in terms of being a se xy girl, i.e. "a girl the maximum number of men would be willing to have se x with." Bring me ten women that fit this description and the only thing that could sway my vote is accessories, makeup, and hair style – but that's all completely interchangeable.

But that paradigm for western society has been steadily shifting away from a blond, blue eyed, Scandinavian-like person, which account for less that 10% of the US population anyway.
