Rihanna fans are in for a treat as pictures of the star enjoying a break from her World tour were released today.

The 23-year-old put photographs on her facebook page which shows her relaxing with her girlfriends on board a yacht just off the coast of Italy.

Wearing a pink bikini, the star posed around on deck with her friends sipping on Armand de Brignac, the Ace of Spades champagne, owned by Jay-Z, and generally larking around. The pictures are thought to have been taking during the three-week break in her Loud Tour after finishing up in England and heading over to South America.

The star looked to be loving her time off as she took time out on the yacht and explored the coastal towns of Southern Italy.

Rihanna resumed her Loud Tour on September 17 taking it to Brazil for four dates, before heading back to the UK at the end of September to visit Belfast, where she also filmed the video for her new single “We Found Love” with FAB cover star Dudley O’Shaughnessy.

The girls lark about having fun


She took her tour on to Dublin before flying back to the UK to play dates in London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow, before heading to Scandinavia for dates in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The singer had to cancel both of her Swedish dates when she was struck down with flu and hospitalised before being hooked up to an IV drip. The star has now recovered and is on tour in Germany before she will head back to the UK for 14 more dates, before heading back to Europe and taking the tour to Italy, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland as well as Poland and Hungary. She will then come back to London, which is proving to be one of her favourite cities, where she will wrap up the tour for three dates just before Christmas. There’s no wonder RiRi has been feeling a little under the weather with her tightly packed schedule!

She is due to take a break in 2012 but today she announced that she will headline the Barclaycard Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park on 8th July.

Tickets go on sale on Friday November 18 for the event which was headlined by the Black Eyed Peas, the Chemical Brothers and Pulp last year.

Doctors have reportedly told Rihanna to cut down on her partying and drinking and a source told The Sun: “Rihanna is running on empty but she’s still been going out drinking and living it up. She doesn’t have any down time where she can completely relax. She spends most of her time in the studio, on stage or in clubs. Doctors are worried she’s overdoing it. She needs to take some time off. Otherwise she’ll be vulnerable to more illness.”

Cheeky Cheeky!
