Rihanna out on the beach in Barbados - December 26th 2009

Pop singer Rihanna spent Christmas with her family in her native country Barbados and was spotted out on the beach Saturday (Dec 27). Rocking a sexy two-piece pink bikini, the “Hard” singer spent some time in the water before heading to the beach’s bar to join her friends for drinks.

In related news, Rihanna has been asked to tone down her live act for her New Year’s Eve performance in Abu Dhabi, UAE this Thursday night (Dec 31). So in order to collect that $500,000 check she’s supposed to get, she’ll have to find a modest stage costume.

A source tells Britain’s Daily Mirror, “Rihanna is tearing her hair out over what to do – she wanted to put on her most eccentric and provocative show yet. She knows that she’ll have to compromise her style to fit in with local traditions – but a huge part of her show is her sexy stage gear. The dress code in Abu Dhabi does not encourage excessively revealing outfits.”
