Bikini-Clad Rihanna Enjoys Day of Tubing Following Grandmother's Funeral (PHOTOS)

Rihana-Tubing-Barbados

How does Rihanna recover from the recent passing of her beloved granny? With booze, bikinis, boating and Barbados, of course.

A few days after mourning her grandmother Clara "Dolly" Braithwaite — who passed away earlier this month after losing a battle with cancer — at a hometown family funeral, the "Birthday Cake" songstress lifted her spirits with a sun-filled day with friends in her native Barbados.

After some retail therapy at Louis Vuitton, Rihanna hit the waves for a wet 'n' wild tube ride.

How else did the Grammy-winning singer wind down?

Relaxing on the boat, the 24-year-old star cracked open an ice-cold Corona as she kicked back with pals.

Back in her high-priced, private villa, a makeup-free Rihanna was spotted lighting up a suspicious rolled-up cigarette with gal pals. The hard-working hitmaker has made no secret of her affections for marijuana in the past, tweeting a reefer-related Drake lyric earlier this year: "Kush rolled, glass full...I prefer the better things."

And it seems all the unwinding has brought the Barbadian beauty some peace. She tweeted, "#grangranDOLLY? I know you smiling down on me brightly, I could feel it in the sunshine ?#1Love? forever."

While her personal life has been a little tough this month, Rihanna's career is shining. The "We Found Love" singer ranked third on Forbes' Highest Paid Stars Under 30 list, reportedly raking in $53 million in the past year and edging out Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Adele.
