Rihanna is featured in the latest issue of ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine, and here is a gorgeous new photo from the shoot. The 22-year-old beauty, who kicks off her ‘Last Girl On Earth’ tour later today in Belgium, is rocking a sexy ensemble designed by Jeremy Scott for Adidas.

The issue boasts the headline “40 Reasons To Get Excited About Music,” and lists “Pop Divas” as No. 19. Here’s an excerpt:

The Top 40 is not nearly by women. Increasingly, it’s of women: packed with club-thumbing megahits about she-wolves and single ladies and fame monsters. The old archetypes are there: good girls (Taylor Swift), bad girls (Ke$ha), good girls gone bad (Rihanna), femme fatales (Beyonce), earth goddesses (Sade, Erykah Badu) and of course divas in the classical model (Mary J. Blige) – women with huge egos and even huger voices, rattling concert rafters with ballads about cruel fate and callous men.

“Everybody wants to be on top – we don’t want to give up that spot,” says Rihanna. “And right now there are alot of women on top – so it’s a real fight.”
