The November issue of the Esquire Magazine is really hot enough to burn your palm. Pop queen Rihanna bares it all for the issue, with the magazine crowning her with the sexiest woman alive title for 2011.

The 23-year-old Barbadian bombshell poses naked and only somewhat covered in patches of seaweeds. The sultry singer is known for turning the heat up in her music videos and in her sensuous performances on the stage.

In an interview with Esquire, Rihanna revealed a secret of her notorious lap dance. She chooses a member of the audience to have simulated sex with, according to the magazine.

The way I pick the person is, whoever I feel doesn't take themselves too seriously, or who I think would be majorly embarrassed about it. Like these old men ... it's hilarious. At first, it was just going to be girls. And then one night, I brought up a gay guy, and then I started bringing up straight guys. Then I started bringing up older straight men. Did you see the one who was getting way too comfortable? Rihanna told Esquire.

The sensuous singer is currently on a world tour to promote her fifth studio album, Loud, and her upcoming album, Talk That Talk, scheduled to be released in November.

The sexiest woman alive distinction has previously been awarded to stars like Minka Kelly, Kate Beckinsale and Halle Berry.
