R&B star Rihanna has vowed never to pose for a naked photo shoot - because her mother would "kill" her.
Although the singer, left, has proved she isn't shy about shedding her clothes in the name of work, she refuses to strip off for a magazine.
She told MTV.co.uk, "My mother would kill me if I posed nude! When I did that metallic body paint stuff for my Umbrella video, I didn't do it to show my body. I didn't do it for people to like me. I did it because it was a cool visual, unexpected, and it looked hot.
"I have done a lot of photo shoots for magazines but it's always great to be shot for a cover because you know that you are looked at as a fashion icon."
Meanwhile, former Spice Girl Melanie Brown has denied she turned down a part in Sex and the City: The Movie, insisting that she would have loved to have been involved in the film.
She told British magazine Star, "No! I would have loved to have had a role in Sex and the City, but no. I'd like to say, 'Yes I did' but actually I didn't."
Brown was also forced to dismiss reports that she is working on new tracks with superstars Janet Jackson and Missy Elliott, just weeks after allegedly boasting about the collaborations. - Wenn
