After a year of performing all over the world, launching a clothing line and partying most nights of the week with her BFFs, we hoped Rihanna might do what she's needed to do all year - take a break.
And look! Here she is. On a beach. With a cocktail. Happier then ever.
The singer is spending the Christmas holiday with family in her home country, Barbados.
Aside from meeting up with her pal Cara (who's also enjoying a break on the island), Rihanna has found plenty of time soak up the sun - and strike a pose - on the beach at the luxury Sandy Lane hotel. Lucky girl.
Oh, and how does she look on a studded gold bikini, without a scrap of makeup on? Beautiful. (Although it's good to see she's still obsessed with nail art, even on her time off.)
