“Shark bait, ooh-haha!”

They don’t call her “Bad Gal RiRi” for nothing! Rihanna has become the focus of another lens shortly after her i-D Magazine release, as she graces the March 2015 cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. The photos of the spread, handled by photographer Norman Jean Roy, feature the Bajan princess in her most exciting shoot yet — swimming with sharks to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the film Jaws!

Summer is indeed right around the corner, and Rihanna‘s new photoshoot is all about the hottest looks for next season, including a beautiful golden Balmain jumpsuit. The shoot took place at Tampa‘s Florida Aquarium in December of last year. It’s about 60 degrees average in Florida during the winter, so we’re kinda hating on that forecast. According to Harper‘s, Rihanna participated in 12 dives into the aquarium’s shark tank with her photographer as sharks intently circled them both!

“I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them, and in those cases I just have to handle them accordingly. But I do not swim with sharks … sharks swim with sharks.”
