Rihanna is stripping down and sharing even more of herself, this time in the Australian version of FHM magazine.

Scantily clad in a dominatrix-esque outfit complete with black fishnet tights, the 23-year-old seductively poses on the cover of the men's magazine under the bold headline 'Better than Gaga, hotter than Perry ... Rihanna Crazy. Sexy. Cool.'

Inside, the Bajan beauty revealed that of her many tattoos the one that reads "Never a failure, always a lesson," means the most. The ink, which was inscribed across her collar bone, is written backwards so that she can read it in the mirror.

RiRi also described what it was like working on her debut film 'Battleship,' which is scheduled to hit theaters next summer. In the film, she plays a weapons officer by the name of Raikes. The 'Loud' creator explained how hard it was to train for the part with a not-so-nice drill sergeant.

"It was so scary. It was horrible. I just wanted to scream right back at him, but I couldn't," Rihanna admitted.

The Grammy winner has snagged a bunch of high profile magazine covers recently including Vogue magazine where she opened up about her strained relationship with her father, and Rolling Stone where she detailed her sexual fantasies.

"Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun," she said. "You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your s---. That's fun to me ... I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned -- you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I'd rather have him use his hands."
