Hope you don't have ophidiophobia — the fear of snakes — because Rihanna's latest magazine cover is revoltingly reptilian.
The 25-year-old Barbadian is the covergirl for British GQ's December 2013 release, which happens to be the magazine's 25th Anniversary issue.
In the portrait, Rihanna wears a crown of snakes, which we're pretty sure are fake. She also has a giant snake wrapped around her neck and arms, which we're pretty sure is real. She sports pointy black fingernails — real — and snakelike pupils — fake.
Oh, and she's topless — which seems to be her default state nowadays — showing off that massive underboob tattoo of hers.
The headline touted on the cover is short, sweet, and to the point: "Rihanna!" (It's almost as if the editors are responding to her song "What's My Name?" Good job, GQ — you did it! You get an A+!)
Rihanna shared the cover image on Instagram, writing, "Medusa head on me like I'm 'luminati," — which is one of Drake's lyrics in the Migos song "Versace."
In case you're in need of a refresher course in Greek mythology, Medusa is a Gorgon monster with venomous snakes in lieu of hair. Those who had the misfortunate to look directly at her turned to stone.
