Rihanna Strips Down to Bikini for Parade in Barbados

Island Brothaz/Splash News

Rihanna showed off her assets Monday (August 1) while she was on her home island of Barbados engaging in some festive activities. The 23-year-old superstar entertainer, who just wrapped her North American Loud tour last week, took part in a Kadooment Day Parade and dressed the part.

The girl once known for wearing baggy jeans and crop tops when she first popped on the scene stripped down to a barely-there red bikini decorated with jewels and donned a matching feathery headdress. By her side was her longtime friend Melissa, who also celebrated the occasion by dressing in a gold ensemble. One male fan even had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with Rihanna as he bent the fiesty performer down in front of him to dance provocatively in back of her.

Before taking part in the parade, Rihanna shared her love for Barbados via Twitter. “My home, my country, my people….BARBADOS!!! #1LOVE #SWEETfahDAYS NOTHIN’ BETTER! #RihannaNavy Miss u guys tho,” the red-haired ‘Cheers’ singer wrote.

Rihanna took part in Kadooment Day to celebrate the ancient tradition of people masquerading in clothing of natural materials after giving the first grown crops to the gods for good luck. Kadooment Day is a public holiday in Barbados, which takes place during the Crop Over Festival. The event rejoices the end of the sugar cane crop harvest.
