Rihanna and Kate Moss V Magazine Rihanna and Kate Moss got downright racy in a scorching photoshoot for V magazine last fall; with several of the photos leaking online via Rihanna fan site

The Bajan singer and the model posed very provacatively in lingerie and in S&M poses in the photos, which Rihanna shared on her Instagram page.

The final versions of the photos are now part of a shoot by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino for the Spring 2013 issue of V magazine.

"I posted them because I was so excited," Rihanna told the magazine. But she deleted them shortly afterward when she learned that they hit the 'net because of hackers breaking into a V insider's computer and releasing them for all the world to ogle.

"I was so bummed [over deleting them] because I thought they were so sick," she adds. "It goes to show how badly people wanted this cover. I guess it was as big a deal to them as it was to me!"

Moss's daughter Lila Grace is credited with getting the two stars together.

"I was a fan," Moss says of Rihanna, "but what really started it was my daughter and her friends running round the house singing all the words to her songs."

By chance the two women ended up sitting next to each other at the 2009 Met Gala and immediately hit it off.

Kate asked Rihanna if she could take a picture of the two of them together for her daughter; but it was Rihanna who was taken aback.

"I was, like, Are you f***ing kidding me?" Rihanna explains. "I was so starstruck. I'm not going to lie."

The two met again at another fashion event in London, where they were spotted by Testino, who brought up the idea of a shoot with Rihanna. Moss overheard and said she wanted in on it.

"Kate overheard us talking and she said, 'I want to do it with you!' Rihanna explains. "Again, I was like, Are you f***ing kidding me?

"I was dying on the inside. All my fantasies were coming true all at once: Mario, V, Kate Moss. I was like, This is an amazing threesome!"
