She's sexy and she knows it!

When it comes time to hit the beach, Rihanna isn't shy about showing a little skin. "My body is comfortable and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock it!" the frequently bikini-clad songstress told Vogue in April 2011 about embracing her shape.

"I love swimming, [and doing] anything in the ocean. That's very, very good for your body," the 5-foot-8 Barbados native tells Us Weekly about her love of the water--and the important role it plays in keeping her fit.

She does her best to stick to lighter, healthier fare, too. "Obviously, you'd like to eat what you want," Rihanna says of her diet. "But I stick to lots of vegetables and white meats, and I stay away from carbs!"
