They are two of the world's biggest popstars who just both happen to have posted snaps of themselves frolicking about in their swimwear online.

So it would be rude if Rihanna and Lady Gaga didn't have have a bikini-off, wouldn't it?

Gaga was enjoying some rare time-off from her gruelling world tour in South America as she hit the beach.

However, despite usually parading about in next to nothing, it appears Gaga isn't a fan of beachwear.

"Me on the beach today," she tweeted, posting a picture of herself sporting her swimsuit. "I have a fear of swimwear but beer is ok," she added.

Adding more pics on her Instagram account, she wrote: "I fear beachwear but a Starlight reminded me miller light goes all the way."

Meanwhile, Rihanna was celebrating completing her new album 'Unapologetic' by jetting back to her native Barbados.
