    Rihanna Goes Topless on GQ, Covers Her Body In Snakes and Channels Medusa

    Looks like Rihanna has gone Greek for her latest GQ cover.

    At least, in the mythological sense.

    The sexy singer graces the December issue of British GQ, channeling the Greek mythological character Medusa, who is generally described as having a hideous female face with living venomous snakes in place of hair.

    And while RiRi's mug is far from ugly, girl's got the whole serpent-style thing down perfectly.

    The full portfolio art was directed by Damien Hirst in celebration of the magazine's 25th anniversary and images were photographed by Mariano Vivanco, and clearly, the 25-year-old singer is proud of the pics, as she can't stop gushing over the photos on Instagram.

    "Medusa head on me like I'm 'luminati!!!! She. x Damien Hirst #GQ#25thAnniversary#COVER," the pop star captioned the cover shot Friday.

    In the pic, RiRi's eyes have a evil glare as she clutches her face with her long black talon nails. She forgoes a shirt and covers her breasts with her forearms, showing off her goddess Isis tattoo on her chest with a large snake wrapped around her neck. Her hair is completely covered with a variety of smaller snakes, some in bright orange and red colors, which appear to almost jump out of the pic as they slither around her head.

    "#GQ #25thanniversary #Cover #RiRi #DamienHirst #Art #SnakeLife," she wrote of an even sexier shot, where she's showing off her bangin' bod with a snake wrapped around her head while seductively posing with a finger in her mouth.

    The "Stay" singer, who is currently in the middle of her Diamonds world tour, most recently took a brief break in Greece this week prior to heading over to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for a performance on Saturday.

    And in typically RiRi fashion, she opted to post a slew of sexy Instagram pics while lounging by the pool (and even opted to show off her flexible figure by seemingly twerking atop the pool railing, natch).

    The special anniversary edition of GQ hits newsstands Oct. 31.
