Daring pop star Rihanna tweeted a “Nude” picture Friday, but she didn’t have to get naked to do so.
The “We Found Love” singer — who has more than 26 million followers on the social networking site — is releasing a new fragrance called Nude next year and took to Twitter to share her latest ad.
The Tweet links to an Instagram picture featuring a scantily clad Rihanna, smiling and sporting platinum blond locks. She wears lace lingerie and covers the rest of her body with what looks like some lightly colored gossamer.
“Here is my new add [sic] for a brand new fragrance #NUDE!!! Make sure you smell sexy, especially naked, this fall!!!” she wrote to accompany the picture.
Rihanna’s new ad generated a lot of love from fans, with 153,000 liking the picture as of Saturday afternoon.
Nude will be Rihanna’s third fragrance: she released Reb'l Fleur in the spring of 2011 and Rebelle in December of that year, to much acclaim from fans.
Posting her Nude picture wasn’t the only controversial move Rihanna made in the twittersphere this week.
It has been no secret this fall that Rihanna and abusive ex Chris Brown have been taking a second stab at their relationship.
This week, sources told the Daily News that the pair were kissing at Griffin in New York’s Meatpacking District. They then reportedly headed to the bathroom together for nearly 20 minutes.
And Chris Brown opened up to fans in a video to claim he feels like it’s possible for him to love two people. He had previously announced his split with model girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
Still, sources close to the stars called the romantic rekindling a “disaster in the making” this week.
"Chris and Rihanna just love the drama. They know their fans don't support them getting back together, and that it's a terrible PR move since Chris was convicted of beating Rihanna,” Radar reported.
"However, this is what Chris and Rihanna thrive on. There are still major trust issues that Rihanna has with Chris, with good reason, he was hooking up with her while he was still dating Karrueche. Chris and Rihanna back together in any capacity is just a disaster in the making."
Seeming to respond to the chatter surrounding her romantic life Thursday night, Rihanna tweeted, “Ain't nobody bidness..... But mine and my baby!”
