Rihanna’s been vacationing in Barbados, gearing up for international and domestic concert tours, visiting family and friends in her native land and catering to her Piscean instincts by unwinding near the shores.
Although Rihanna has been criticized by the media for not speaking out on domestic violence, she has been giving back in other ways, like visiting Jasmina Anema, a 6-year-old suffering with a rare form of cancer who is in need of a bone marrow transplant.
Perhaps Barbados has been a source of healing for Rihanna. The pop star has made frequent visits to her hometown since her reported split with Chris Brown. Here, she’s seen arriving at the island’s airport.
From Los Angeles to New York, Rihanna has remained on the party scene. Paparazzi snapped her leaving L.A.‘s Bar Deluxe with friends recently. It seems she’s trying to enjoy life despite her public relationship drama, and she’s even been rumored to have had romantic liaisons with an NBA baller and labelmate Kanye West.
Looking pensive and a bit camera shy, Rihanna rocks her gothic-chic style for dinner at Nobu in Los Angeles in March. The pop star, known for her affinity for body art, added a new tattoo below her rib cage of a gun recently, suggesting that she’s now armed and dangerous.
Looking more sassy than sweet, Rihanna heats up the red carpet at the Costume Institute’s annual gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET). The “Good Girl Gone Bad” singer spices it up in a Dolce & Gabbana cropped pant suit with a haute couture tuxedo jacket. We are lovin’ the exaggerated shoulders that only a true risk-taking fashionista could pull off. It appears the megastar is doing just fine since taking a break from boyfriend Chris Brown.
