Rihanna's world: Welcome to the life of a music superstar
09 NOVEMBER 2011
We've seen Rihanna
splashing out in the French Riviera
and filming her raunchy music videos
, but what's the singing sensation really like away from the spotlight?
New intimate pictures released by the Bajan beauty show her natural and fun side.
The 23-year-old posted photos on Facebook showing her relaxing with some of her close friends on board a yacht off the coast of Italy this summer.
In the candid snaps, she can be seen partying on the luxury vessel, messing about on the water, getting ready for her concerts, meeting fans and recording her new album.
