Rihanna gets sexy on Talk That Talk

Rihanna has unveiled two new sexy album covers for her album, Talk That Talk. Take a look and tell us -- cool and edgy or too provocative?

The image on the left is for the standard edition of Talk That Talk, and shows Rihanna licking her lips provocatively while clutching her head, exposing a "Talk That Talk" tattoo on her arm. Her smoky eyes and animal print top finish off her edgy look.

The album cover on the right is for the deluxe edition of Talk That Talk and is a black and white photo with Rihanna blowing smoke out of her mouth, which has ruffled feathers as some feel this image isn't exactly a good one for her young fans.

The 23-year-old, who was just named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive, told British Vogue this year that she doesn't want to be a role model.

"See, people ... they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me, and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That's it," she said.

With the release of her Talk That Talk single, "We Found Love" (which is currently #4 on iTunes), Rihanna just broke Madonna's record for a solo artist achieving 20 top 10 singles in the shortest amount of time.
