When Rihanna’s naked pictures hit the net, the performer says she mailed her mother flowers.

In RiRi’s recent interview with Hot 97, besides talking about her love for “boobies,” the singer also talked about her shock to find her naked body splashed over the Internet earlier this year.

“I was [freaked out],” she admitted. “It was the worst thing that could possibly ever happen to me. I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that [first 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.”

In the photos, Rihanna stood in a bathroom with her face halfway covered.

“It was humiliating and it was embarrassing especially my mom having to see that,” she said, adding that she sent her mom flowers two days before the photos leaked. “I was nervous [but] when the world is against me she’s always there supporting,” the singer said.

Right before the naked pictures surfaced, disturbing photos of the singer battered by her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown surfaced. Without indicating when exactly the nude photos were taken, Rihanna said that pictures were for him.

“They were for my boyfriend at the time,” she says, before adding, “if you don’t send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel sorry for him.” –Linda Hobbs
