Rihanna’s Ho Sh*t Made It Rain For GQ In 2010

- By Bossip Staff

There’s nothing like the ho sh*t that contributes to the wealth of others.

Rihanna‘s nekkedness on the January cover of GQ, which we now know was the beginning of a year of ho sh*t made it rain on newsstands last year.

Her January GQ cover, on which she posed topless, was th magazine’s second-best seller of the year through November. The Barbadian beauty’s August Seventeen cover was the mag’s top-selling issue through the end of October.

Strangely, not every cover Rihanna touched turned to newsstand gold. Her July Elle cover barely sold at alll — sold but 285,000 copies.

Lady Gaga‘s naked arss did even better in print.

Lady Gaga was the hottest cover girl in 2010.

The singer with the wild fashion style was a runaway hit for both monthly and biweekly magazines sold on the newsstand, according to WWD.com.

Cosmopolitan magazine’s April issue with Gaga on the cover sold 1.7 million copies. Her gun-totin’ July 8 Rolling Stone cover translated into newsstand sales of 245,000 copies, nearly three times better than the year’s average.

Gaga’s Vanity Fair cover in September sold 450,000 copies, the magazine’s second-best seller of the year.

You know what doesn’t sell magazines? Jessica Simpson with no makeup. And Taylor Swift, who people are just now figuring out is boring. Her Elle, Glamour and Marie Claire covers all tanked.

Peep the covers below in case you missed them.

    lose weight get some swag and u too can be a cover girl and have no need to hate. u cant stop the shining.

  • ~ChynaPeach~

    Thanks for the tip. Now heres one for u. Learn to actually decipher the difference between hate and an honest statement before responding to something that has nothing to do with you. Secondly get your own swag so u can hop off rihanna’s sack. Thank you.

    it is offensive to me for her to wear a cross while selling sex

  • Kera

    Hollyweird is so messed up. Shout out to Rihanna but this just proves that there is a black token girl…and that girl is Rihanna. They put all of those girls on covers instead of diversing it with diff races and out of all that Rih and Gaga shined.
