Playing Rihanna Swims with Real Sharks for Daring Photo Shoot!

Not since Shark Week have sharks received so much attention from Hollywood. First Katy Perry dances with the fish at the Super Bowl halftime show, and now Rihanna is swimming with them for a sexy Harper's Bazaar photo shoot.

In a behind-the-scenes look at the daring shoot (photographed by Norma Jean Roy), the prestigious magazine goes under the sea (more like an aquarium) with the "Umbrella" singer, who appears to be pretty fearless despite sharks swimming all around her.

"I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them, and in those cases I just have to handle them accordingly," the Barbados native said of the sea creatures. "But I do not swim with sharks …sharks swim with sharks."

While most of the images are taken with Rihanna floating on top of the water, she become brave and starts swimming deep underwater with the deadly animals. Bragging a bit about her scary shoot, she hashtagged on Instagram: "YallMuhPhuckazWouldaBeenChewed."

Not all of the photos included sharks. Some featured RiRi, 26, in a sexy gold jumpsuits. "The way I dress depends on how I feel," she said of her look. "I never have to psych myself up. Usually it just feels like it works."
