Why it pays to be a fan of Rihanna Rihanna Tue-14-Aug-12 18:12 Share this By Megan Slovak In order to show her best fans how much they mean to her, Rihanna has flown five of her favourite fans out to her home island of Barbados to join her for a vacation. Riri made the gesture to recognise the huge amounts of money the chosen few spend following her around the world. She paid for them to stay in the upper range accommodation of the Sandy Lane hotel and then invited them over to her house for tea. A source said: "She wanted to show them how grateful she was. She figured the best thank you was to cook them tea in her hometown." In other news Rihanna has just her endorsement deal with Nivea skin cream, apparently due to her ‘sultry image and hard partying.’ You May Also Like Sophie & Sharyn get their bums out like Rihanna Rihanna's new vid 'We Found Love' Rihanna got a traditional tattoo from Tiki Taane!
