Rihanna’s Barbadian vacation looks like so much liquor-soaked fun


As more and more photos of Rihanna’s rum-soaked Barbadian holiday come out, I grow increasingly jealous. The whole trip looks like so much fun, and Rihanna just seems to be having the best time. I wish I was part of her crew so I could get hammered with Rihanna and go night-swimming in Bob Marley swimsuits. Once again, I have to hand it to Rihanna – the girl knows how to party, and she knows how to maintain too. Sure, she looked drunk in all of the photos from Kadooment Day, and she looked like she might have a buzz in those white bikini photos too, but she never looks like she’s completely wasted, like she’s too far gone to function. Even in these new photos, of Rihanna night-swimming and bringing her dear friend, beer, along with her, she still knows what she’s doing. She’s PARTYING, for the love of God. She’s on vacation. Let the girl get hammered and go night-swimming.


Apparently, this “Banks Beer” in Rihanna’s hand is the official beer of Barbados or something. As for the Bob Marley swimsuit, Rihanna is a big Marley fan. In an interview last year, Rihanna said she had a “Bob Marley room” made in her LA house, which is sort of her shrine to him, “The Bob Marley room is my loungey room, so there’s incense burning, there’s a painting on the wall of Bob Marley in black and white, which I love. The rest of the room goes from green into yellow into red, like the Jamaican flag. There’s a little coffee table and these seats that are like big pillows on the floor, so it’s not formal at all. There are lots of Bob Marley books, lyric books. He’s one of my favourite artists of all time – he really paved the way for every other artist out of the Caribbean.”


The Mail also has a piece about Rihanna’s relationship with her hair stylist, Ursula Stephen, who changes more than $3000 a day. A source says, “Rihanna likes to pioneer new styles but it’s costing her a fortune. She makes several public appearances a week, and the cost soon stacks up. Ursula is a close confidante and they are together all the time. You have to wonder why she insists on keeping such an expensive member of her entourage on the payroll 24/7. Most of these costs are paid for by her management.” Yikes. She’s paying way too much for these hair styles, although I think she looks so much better without the Kool-Aid color.

    I can’t hate, that singing sheep sure has a nice bod.

  2. coucou says:

    Ummm, in the 2nd shot, are those folds in Bob’s shirt or are they her folds?

    That has got to be the weirdest camel toe i’ve ever seen.

    I read this as “Barbarian vacation.” I need more caffeine.

  4. carrie says:

    i want to take my holiday with her

  5. Rita says:


    Actually, those aren’t camel toes…it’s one of those new one piece peekaboo suits….YIKES!!!!

  6. Bubbling says:

    She looks so cute and hot at the same time! I can’t be mad when I see someone who looks that…happy :)

  7. chris says:

    The Jamaican flag does not have any red. Maybe she’s thinking of the rasta flag.

  8. mln76 says:

    Oh to be early 20s with a great bod and a colossal bank account hanging out on the beach drinking with my friends.

  9. Kelly says:

    She looks great, but…. $3K for that hair? Dude, I could go down to Long Beach or ride the subway and see chicks that look that way naturally…

  10. Mimi says:

    she is cute and it looks really like fun.

  11. Grace says:

    She has an amazing body. When she’s not performing, she tends to dress well and her clothes fit her body type so the stylist is definitely doing her job, but I’d rather keep some of that money for my future. Fame is fleeting and she’s still very young.

  12. Cherry says:

    @Coucou I was thinking the same thing…
    @Rita one piece peekaboo suits? Please don’t tell me we’re actually looking at her ladyparts here? Cause if so, she’s got the weirdest stretched-out vagina I’ve ever seen…

  13. Blue says:

    I love her but the Jamaican flag is black, green and yellow. No red.

  14. K-MAC says:

    She is adorable! Thank GAWD she is having fun! girl needs it

  15. Dhavy says:

    Damn I remember those days…….single, drinking with my friends, hanging out at the local beach (Miami), partying at the clubs. I was broke though but I had soooo much fun at her age. Good for her!

  16. Carolyn says:

    3K a day for that hair? Someone really needs to have a chat with RiRi – her stylist is ripping her off. I liked the red hair. She does look like she’s having fun – good on her. Agree with those here hoping she’s putting a lot of $$ away for her future and not blowing it all now. Hope she’s partying with true friends and not just hangers-on.

  17. ADS says:

    She looks so happy and Kaiser is right, totally wasted. I think she is one of the few celebs I can think of who would be fun on a night out. Also, she seems such a sweetheart I reckon she would foot the bill too. Win Win.

  18. Anne de Vries says:

    I love her hair like this

  19. ZenB!tch says:

    @coucou @rita @cherry

    um wtf is that? either way its up way too high.

  20. fabchick says:

    She looks so cute in the pic holding the red tube thing. So young and carefree. Those were the days

  21. Louise says:

    I don’t think it’s cameltoe. If (I can’t believe I’m asking anyone to look closer!) at the second last photo, I’m pretty sure it’s his shirt. It IS seriously unflattering though, whatever the case may be.

  22. louiset says:

    It’s really hard to tell if she’s drunk. She’s swimming in, I’m assuming, a chlorine pool. Everybody looks drunk after swimming. I think she’s just having fun with friends on vacation.

  23. k says:

    I don’t think that is camel toe or cut out. Looks like the airbrushed folds of Marley’s shirt. Just an unfortunate positioning …

  24. ManicPixieDreamGirl says:

    Who the hell goes swimming with that much jewelry on? She’s headed the MC Hammer route if she pays a stylist that much to fix her mop.

  25. Venefica Delirium says:

    Can’t stand her music, but this is the happiest she’s looked in a very long time.

  26. Ben says:

    So glad for her. She’s been working so hard, for sooo long. If you check out her Wikipedia discography, she releases like 6 singles a year, with accompanying videos, touring, recording, promotional stuff… she deserves this.

  27. gee says:

    Her new hair looks great. She has a fantastic body, but she cannot sing at all.

  28. JustBored says:

    I love Rihanna, but the Jamaican flag does not have a ounce of red in it. The red she mentions is probably from the Ethiopian flag which a lot of rastafarians carry as their tribute to the Emperor Haile Selassie I.

    The Rastafari movement is popular in Jamaica, hence the Ethiopian flag and colours, the association of red in the flag is a pretty common mistake though.
