Rihanna's Confidence-Boosting Secret? Get Naked!

The singer says she eased her body issues by stripping down: "The more I got naked, the more comfortable I felt"

International superstar Rihanna is known for her fabulous figure, but even she has the occasional body insecurity. And RiRi admits that she felt a little self-conscious about losing her signature booty after slimming down a bit.

"I'm working on getting [my butt] back," she tells People. "It used to be my favorite body part, but now it's disappeared!"

Luckily, she discovered an easy cure to her body issues, she tells Britain's Women's Fitness magazine.

"The more I got naked, the more comfortable I felt," the 24-year-old singer says. "I just had to face my fear. 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."

The Barbados-born singer, who has admitted she has no control over her continued weight loss, adds that getting to know her body sans clothes was instrumental in boosting her self-confidence.

"After a while, it was like, 'What's the worst that can happen?' I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body … is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes."

Although RiRi is happy with herself, the pop star admits stripping down may not have the same effect on all of her fans. "My way probably won't work for most people," she says.
