Rihanna hit the beach in her home country of Barbados this afternoon. She splashed around in the water and soaked up the rays, but Rihanna's bright day didn't last since she tweeted "the sun just went hiding somewhere, and I'm still not dark yet!!!" The weather didn't stop Rihanna from flaunting her fit physique, which landed among the hottest bikini bodies of the year.
She's been relaxing in a two-piece since arriving in the Caribbean on Christmas Eve, though she took a break from the sand to celebrate the holidays with her family. The getaway is a relaxing end to a busy 2011 for the singer, who toured the world, teamed up with Emporio Armani to design a capsule collection, and released her sixth album. Talk That Talk was one of your favorite pop albums and fans are still waiting to see which single she chooses next.
