Rihanna Celebrates Christmas in Barbados

Rihanna returned home for the holidays. The pop superstar traded the frigid New York cold for the sunny beaches of Barbados while spending Christmas with her family in the Caribbean.

The island gal showed her Christmas spirit by rocking a red bikini and chilling poolside with her BFF Melissa Forde. RiRi also enjoyed some quality time with her grandfather Bravo and six-month-old baby cousin Majesty.

“majesty wanna be me so bad!” said RiRi of the adorable toddler.

Earlier in the week, Rihanna shared pics of her one-of-a-kind Christmas tree. She and Melissa donned blue fur coats (“Smurfette couture”) as they posed in front of the black and glittery tree, which she dubbed the “best tree everrrrr.”

While Rihanna didn’t drop new music this year, you can expect her eighth album in 2015. She has been teasing snippets on Instagram including a Mike WiLL Made-It-produced song and another called “Kiss It Better.”
