  • The popstar is about to turn 26, and she's spending her final hours taking shots and snapping selfies

    Rihanna is living out her final moments as a 25-year-old in true diva style.

    On Monday, the popstar – who turns 26 tomorrow – let her 11 million Instagram followers know that her birthday festivities were about to kick off. And then the photo-sharing storm began.

    RiRi and her pals jetted off to snowy Aspen and rented a luxury cabin to celebrate her big day. Upon their arrival, she immediately began posting pics of their lavish Colorado digs – which include a personal bowling alley, a swish outdoor hot tub and a cosy fireplace.


    She also made it very clear what the main activity on the agenda would be: Booze, booze and more booze.

    ’26 you better bring it b*tch!!!!’ she posted. ’48 hrs left on my quarter century! Here’s to not remembering any of them!’

    Later, she shared a snap of a round of shots, accompanied by a sad face emoticon. And on Tuesday, she shared a cheeky from-behind snap of her standing in front of a white board with the words: ‘Welcome to Aspen! Tonight’s drinks are…’


    Of course, we’d expect nothing less from our favourite party girl – we just hope she doesn’t overdo it. But at least we’re somewhat comforted knowing she has a delicious-looking birthday cake to wash down all that liquor.
