But Rihanna fans were in for a treat today when the pop star posted a selection of intimate snaps from her recent break from her world tour.
The 23-year-old put the photos on her Facebook page which showed her relaxing with some of her close girlfriends on board a yacht off the coast of Italy.

Wearing a pink bikini, the star poses on deck before larking about with one of her friends as she lets her hair down.
The pictures were taken this summer, possibly during the three-week break in her Loud Tour after finishing in England having played the V Festival, and making her way to South America.

Rihanna brought along her very close bunch of pals for the girlie break and even with no men on board they still looked as though they were having a very sexy time of it.
