Rihanna defends the art of sexting

Mark Seliger for Rolling Stone

Rihanna is red hot right now, and on the cover of Rolling Stone. In the accompanying interview, Rihanna opens up about Chris Brown ("we don't have to talk ever again in my life"), putting up her guard after Brown assaulted her, and now, her stance on sexting.

"When you're not with the person you want to be intimate with, a picture is the next best thing," she told Rolling Stone. "Well, Skype is safer. But a picture lasts a long time. When you're alone ... pictures can be very handy."
