Rihanna Smokes In 'Talk That Talk' Promo Photos - Is She Setting A Bad Example? (PHOTOS)

It seems Rihanna won't let go of her favourite fashion accessory, despite repeated claims that she's "a bad influence" from her critics.

Channelling the look of a fifties star, like Joan Crawford - who was paid to endorse cigarettes - the What's My Name singer has once again been snapped smoking, this time in promotional photos for her new album Talk That Talk.

Dressed in a punky, stripy ensemble, the 23-year-old superstar appears to be enjoying her cigarette rather a lot. This is by no means an accident. Her latest album has been described as her proving "that she just might be the baddest bitch of them all", so the cigarettes are seemingly all part of her 'bad girl image'. She can't get any more naked than she already has, so it looks like lighting up is just the next stage in Rhi-Rhi's evolution.
