Rihanna, dear, why can’t you keep your clothes on?

The Ministry can’t help but wonder if Rihanna isn’t working out some issues.

She’s dropped her top again -- this time for a W magazine photo shoot.

That’s after baring enough of her breasts on the January GQ magazine cover to prevent this blog from linking to it. And baring her butt for her single ‘Hard’ (wearing only the word ‘hard’ over her breasts). And going topless except for barbed wire for the single ‘Russian Roulette.’ And going topless again (except a carefully placed arm) to illustrate ‘Wait Your Turn.’


What, is the point that she’s willing to ‘wait her turn’ to wear a shirt?

Anyone else seeing a pattern here?

Seems like only yesterday that we were seeing her pose naked except for a hat, boots, a carefully placed sign and a big ol’ cigarette hanging from her lip, for the release of her single ‘Rude Boy.’

OK, it was Tuesday. Close enough.
