New York, NY -- Posing naked except for an open motorcycle jacket makes it obvious why the guys at GQ named Rihanna their "Obsession of the Year." There are several similar shots inside the magazine. Rihanna tells GQ that her open sexuality comes from growing up in Barbados. She says Americans make sex "the forbidden fruit, but that only makes kids more curious." Rihanna says she likes to be in control of her career, but not in a relationship. She says she prefers to "take a step back and have somebody else take the lead."
