  • Rihanna Cover Essence Magazine in Collaboration with Visual Artist Lorna Simpson

The global icon has teamed up with another legend, photographer Lorna Simpson, for the cover of Essence's January/February 2021 issue, which offers a series of photographic collages in a 12-page spread titled "Of Earth & Sky".

It's not the regular photoshoot but is anything else normal or regular with the island beauty?

Rihanna called Simpson - whose work often explores representation, identity, gender, race and history - "a legend", and told the magazine she was nervous about reaching out to collaborate. "She muses: "... At 13, I was deeply grateful that at a formative time in my life, it was Rihanna's voice and art that became my portals to so many questions about sexuality, sexual exploration and sexual autonomy.

Paul Getty Medal and she has been honored by The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the Studio Museum in Harlem. "Simpson states: "... I needed to create images of Rihanna to place within the environments of source materials from my archive. "As an artist, I'm able to deliver these unusual images of someone who is so well-known and so recognizable..." I remember just saking in my bed then I had to remember "you got this". I was like she choose me for a reason.

The makeup artist, who is also of Guyanese heritage, as is Rihanna, reacted to a fan saying, "Guyanese girls unite".
