She recently revealed to Women's Fitness (via Daily Mail), "You always find something wrong, you always find something you're uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it."
So, how did Rihanna overcome her doubts and get such killer confidence? As she says, "The more I got naked the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear."
She finally thought: "'What's the worst that can happen?' and I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body is the way it is no matter what that helped me, knowing that it is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes."
We like her idea of pure acceptance and love that she's facing a fear (even if some of her recent outfits are a bit unfashionable). She did admit that most people won't go along with this advice, but for her, it's working. 75% Of Readers Think Rihanna Needs To Dump Ex, Chris Brown!
