Action girl Rihanna takes to the waves on a jetski... wearing a string bikini



Action girl: Rihanna confidently whizzes around on a jet ski as she holidays in Barbados

Growing up in Barbados, Rihanna is certainly no stranger to life on the beach.

And the singer showed off her prowess at the handles of a jet ski today, masterfully charging around on the water.

The 22-year-old wore a tiny string bikini for her adventure, sensibly belting on a lifejacket over the top.

Rihanna has spent plenty of time enjoying the warm weather on her trip home to her native Barbados this Christmas.

She was spotted sunning herself on the beach yesterday in a black swimsuit, designed to look like a panther.

Rihanna is spending Christmas with her family in Barbados before jetting back to the U.S in time for New Year's Eve.

But she is also fitting in a spot of work, having a business dinner with Topshop boss Sir Philip Green and music mogul Simon Cowell on Boxing Day.

'Just had dinner w/ Simon Cowell Philip Green, and Lucian G., and Ashley (thanks) @ Sandy Lane! Great night!' she tweeted.

They're likely to have had plenty to talk about.

Rihanna's racy performance on Cowell's British show X Factor earlier this month saw TV regulators Ofcom launch an investigation into the show.

But for the most part this has been a family vacation for Rihanna, whose work normally keeps her away from Barbados.

After doing her Christmas shopping in Los Angeles earlier this week, the Umbrella star jetted to Barbados's Grantley Adams Airport via Miami on Wednesday.

At Miami, she met her mother Monica and her aunt and they boarded the flight back to Barbados together.
