Global pop star Rihanna is very busy these days... however she isn't forgetting to have fun. The star was caught poolside, on camera, in a "denim bikini" as she was holidaying with her friends.

Fortunately for all her adoring fans, the singer later tweeted the photographs. One of those images was of her reclining on a sun lounger, with the caption: "Gimme dat", while another was a face shot of the singer in her bikini.

The Daily Mail wrote of the photographs, in which her well-tanned and toned physique was highlighted by a dash of scarlet lipstick, the "Battleship" star "had clearly been too tired to focus on her fashion prowess and was spotted displaying a faux-pas in the form of socks and heels".

Rihanna has just released her Hollywood debut - a sci-fi action film called "Battleship" - and has returned from a promotional tour in Australia. The film casts her as part of the crew of an international fleet of ships facing an alien attack. Her Australia trip, however, was not without its share of moments. Apparently, she was a little acidic at a press conference in Sydney, when a reporter asked her a few personal questions.

Meanwhile, it has also been announced that Rihanna will feature as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live's 5 May episode, which will be hosted by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

Finally, despite all the speculation linking the singer to former boyfriend Chris Brown and Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher, she remains, so she claims, single. There are, however, certain pieces of gossip that speculate her recent bikini shots were meant for Brown.

The star's younger brother, Rorrey Fenty, thinks his famous single sister needs a "laidback and fun-loving" man in her life, according to the Hindustan Times.

"She has told me she wants to get married and have children. She needs a man who likes to do the stuff she likes doing, someone laidback and fun-loving. There are a million guys across the world waiting to take her out, but she says they are more intimidated by her than anything else," Fenty said.
