Barbados-born babe and pop sensation Rihanna seemed excited to showcase her hard-earned curves on Twitter yesterday (January 17th).

The bombshell did not shy from sharing her Hawaiian holiday antics with more than 12 million followers as she tweeted pictures of herself in a revealing silver swimming costume and gold jewellery.

As gold bracelets adorned her wrists and large gold earrings dangled towards her shoulders, a shimmering one-piece wrapped its way around her svelte physique with nude-coloured material flowing over her stomach and sides.

Proving she maintains a high-level of hip-hop cool, the stunning performer paired over-sized sunglasses with a particularly curly hairdo draped across her forehead.

It may not be all clean-living for the star, however, as she revealed on Twitter: “Kush rolled, glass full … I prefer the better things!”

It seems Rihanna, who suffered facial injuries in 2009 after then-boyfriend Chris Brown attacked her, may have braved shark-infested waters.

She tweeted: “Swimming with Sharks is one of my favourite things I’ve ever done.”
