Happy Birthday Rihanna!!! The “singer” turns 22 today, and it sounds like her lil boyfriend Matt Kemp has some hot plans for her. Pop the hood for details on her birthday party and her upcoming book, along with some shots from Australia earlier this week.
The singer turns 22 on Saturday and will ring in her birthday with a very “private and intimate” bash thrown for her by her boyfriend, Dodger Matt Kemp, sources tell E! News exclusively.
“(Matt) really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna this year since she didn’t have much of a 21st birthday last year,” says one source.
According to the insider, Kemp originally wanted to throw Rihanna a surprise party, but eventually Rihanna caught on and now knows there will be a small get-together.
E! News has learned that the party will be a low-key night with Kemp and Ri-Ri’s “closest friends, good Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and a nice cake.”
Party spies tell us the event will be held at a private residence in Phoenix, where Kemp is currently staying for spring training and where Rihanna arrived to yesterday from Australia to be with Kemp.
Sounds like fun! Nothing like a lil birthday bootay, right Rih Rih?
The official visual chronicle of the year’s “it” girl as she embarks on her first solo tour.
The millions of sites tracking her every fashion move, the innumerable magazine covers including the recent Italian Vogue shot by Steven Klein, her past endorsement deals including Gucci and CoverGirl—Rihanna is the reigning style icon of the moment. She has garnered multiplatinum–selling success as an artist (her current album, her fourth, Rated R had the highest first-week sales of any of her other albums in the U.S. to date), including Grammys, MTV Video Music Awards, and countless other awards for her performances. Creative director Simon Henwood captures the supernova at the height of her beauty and ferocity in hundreds of photographs that track her enormous influence on current trends and interaction with the world of fashion—from her performances in the most cutting-edge couture (such as Gaultier and Chanel, as well as in pieces from museum collections), to her relationships with the unknown but up-and-coming designers she personally champions, to her fashion shoot with Ellen von Unwerth in Berlin for her album artwork.
The book will be released June 29, 2010, but Amazon.com is already accepting pre-orders… And if you’re the type that needs to see Rihanna in EVERY single outfit, you’ll be happy about these shots of her leaving Bondi’s Icebergs in Sydney, Australia Monday.
Looking very ladylike! Happy Birthday RihRih!
