Rihanna Says Leak of Nude Pix Was “Humiliating”

Sexy photos hit web just after shots of her bloodied by ex-boyfriend

Rihanna endorses the idea of women sending naked pictures to their boyfriends, but when her own X-rated snaps got leaked on the web, she was humiliated.

"They were for my boyfriend at the time," Rihanna, 21, told New York radio station Hot 97, adding, "if you don't send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him."

The sexy pictures got out just weeks after police photos were leaked showing the results of her fight with then boyfriend Chris Brown. The combination left Rihanna hurt and angry, she said.

"It was the worst thing that could possibly ever happen to me," she told the station as she hyped her new album, "Rated R." "I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that [with the other photo leak] and then, when that came out, I thought, 'Oh great, so now there's nothing they don't know about me and my private life,' " she said. "It was humiliating and it was embarrassing – especially my mom having to see that."

As embarrassing as it was to have the world view the intimate photos, Rihanna said she was most worried about her Mom finding out about them, espcially in the days leading up to Mother's day.

"I was nervous, but when the world is against me she's always there supporting," Rihanna said.
