RIHANNA has been named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive 2011.

The 'S&M' singer beat a host of famous beauties to take the US edition of the men's magazine's annual title including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emma Stone, Beyonce Knowles, MMA Fighter Gina Carano and tennis player Victoria Azarenka.

In an accompanying interview with the publication, Rihanna claims she doesn't even try hard to be sexy when she is performing live, despite playing a set which features her change into several flash-fleshing outfits, ride the turret of a pink tank and routinely pull male fans on stage to give a lap dance to.

The 23-year-pop superstar - who appears naked on the cover of Esquire - said: "At the end of a concert, I don't feel like I've been this sexy thing. Really, I don't even think about it. I mean, unless it's a song that really calls for it, like 'Skin' or 'S&M,' or when I cover 'Darling Nikki'. Although there's a section that's called 'Sex' in the show, which is the obvious section for sexuality."

The Barbados-born star admits she had an embarrassing moment when her lap dance routine got one guy a bit too excited after she had grinded on him.

Speaking about the segment on her 'Loud Tour', she explained: "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? I can't remember the city, but I remember what the guy looked like ... He was just getting excited ... We have pictures!"

Previous winners of Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive title include Minka Kelly (2010), Kate Beckinsale (2009), Halle Berry (2008), Charlize Theron (2007), Scarlett Johansson (2006), Jessica Biel (2005) and Angelina Jolie (2004).
