Only Rihanna could fly to another country just for a big night out – and yesterday, she did just that, because she flew from LA to Barbados just for their version of Carnival and stayed out until 6am. Oh, Rihanna.
The singer tweeted: “Woke up in paint and a veil from partying in de street all morning!!! #Barbados #FOREDAYmorning CROP OVA almost here!”
The Carnival is to celebrate the country’s harvest of the sugar crops, but looking at the pictures, it’s a good chance for Rihanna to take all her clothes off, grind on other girls and drink loads. We think it looks AMAZING.
Rihanna also rode about on her bodyguard’s back, but we’d imagine that’s all part of the job description. “Take care of her, keep fans away, act like a donkey, hold her bag when she dances.” Y’know, just normal stuff.
The Foreday Morning Jam party started at midnight and ended at 6am in Bridgetown, which is where Rihanna grew up until she was discovered by Jay Z aged 16.
Riri took best mate Melissa Forde with her, but afterwards (possibly on a private plane back to the US) she tweeted it was back to work. SAD.
“And on that note, glam starts NOW!!! New cover shoot today! I got a hustler spirit” she wrote on Twitter. So, no more bikinis, no more paint, no more plastic glasses? Oh Rihanna, we’re sad.
We love that on Friday, Rihanna was shopping in LA, but by the next day she was partying at home with her mates she grew up with.
Of course, everyone in Bridgetown was really excited to see her – and Twitter went a bit mental because an actual A-Lister was just walking around in the crowds like it was normal.
“Saw Rihanna on the ground at foreday getting Jam down Yu go Riri!” posted one partier, while others couldn’t stop spotting her: “Rihanna was on the road with us”, “Saw Rihanna today!” and “Rihanna Having A Great Time At Foreday Morning… Getting A Quick Lift Along The Way 😉 Enjoy Yourself RiRi!” were some of the excited posts. Other fans uploaded pictures of her dancing in the crowds, and one person called it: “the highlight of crop over so far!” One lucky man Tweeted the story his mate will be telling down the pub every day for a month: “Trav is super stoked he got to dance with @rihanna at foreday morning!”
Er, can we come out with you please Rihanna? We promise not to moan when people spill beer in our hair like we do at the Notting Hill Carnival … (well, we can’t promise anything really)
