Rihanna took some time off her Diamonds World Tour to head back to her hometown for the carnival-like atmosphere in conjunction with the Crop Over Festival season Saturday. The annual event in Barbados’ capital Bridgetown is a time of celebration during which residents wear elaborate costumes and dance to welcome the end of a successful sugarcane harvest.
The 25-year-old beauty has attended the popular event annually, and she made no exception this year, wearing a sexy bodysuit that was a combination of sparkling gray and white mesh. Rihanna also adorned her face with green jewels and embellished blue sunglasses.
With a drink in hand, the hard-partying singer looked to be in great spirits, even getting down on all fours at one point to join the dance festivities. She made sure to leave her designer heels at home, opting instead for black-and-white Converse sneakers. The event outdoors lasted from midnight to 6 a.m. Afterward, Rihanna took to Twitter:

Meanwhile, Rihanna and Karrueche Tran narrowly escaped an awkward meeting Thursday night in Hollywood, Calif., where both women were at the same nightclub. Fortunately, Tran left the club around 2:15 a.m. local time, just minutes before Rihanna arrived. Both of Chris Brown’s exes opted for sheer dresses -- Rihanna in black and Tran in white. The two beauties also showed off new hairstyles. Rihanna recently cut her gray and black hair, changing to a curly, short black style, while Tran added blond highlights to the end of her dark brown tresses.
In a recent interview with HollywoodLife.com, Brown admitted he is single, saying of his exes: “I just choose to be single! I’m still good friends with them. [Now] it’s just me being focused with my music and doing this stuff. Right now, I’m in my prime.”
