Rihanna Looks Furiosa In ‘W’ Cover Spread

Rihanna covers the September issue of W, and she stars at the Baddest Bitch of the Post-Apocalypse (their words). Photographed by Steven Klein, the magazine describes the vibe as “pop’s Furiosa, the last woman on earth and the ruling warrior queen in a dark, dystopian future,” referring to Charlize Theron‘s badass Mad Max hero.

So Rihanna’s a gothpocalypse queen here, she’s an alien in her “Sledgehammer” video, she’s an alien stripper in the forthcoming Valerian. All following ANTI, her most human album yet.
