Rihanna transforms into Medusa for the cover of GQ‘s 25th anniversary issue.

The Diamonds singer strikes a pose as Medusa for the British magazine’s December issue. RiRi is topless with contacts, while snakes sit atop her head and a boa constrictor wraps around her neck. The shoot was art directed by Damien Hirst, one of the world’s most highly-acclaimed living artists.

Rihanna joked about the shoot on Twitter. She tweeted, “Medusa head on me like I’m ‘luminati!!!! She. x Damien Hirst #GQ #25thAnniversary #COVER.”

In Greek mythology, Medusa was a monster, who would turn onlookers to stone if they looked at her hideous face. Check out a few more photos from the issue below.
