Rihanna celebrated her 32nd birthday with a party south of the border. The Bad Gal vacationed to Mexico with her closest friends and family, who threw her a fiesta-themed party on Wednesday night.
Guests including her brothers Rorrey and Rajad, best friends Melissa Ford and Jenn Rosales, baby cousin Majesty, and Roc Nation’s Jay Brown sat down to a lavish dinner prepared by the resort’s chef before a mariachi band and dancers entertained the crowd. Rih and pals danced until the early morning to songs including Future and Drake’s “Life Is Good” and Don Toliver’s “No Idea.”
“Rihanna is having a birthday celebration in Mexico. She invited her friends and family down to celebrate turning 32 with her,” a source tells E! News. “They had a dinner party on Wednesday night with dinner and dancing. Everyone was welcomed to the party with a line of mariachis performing and Tequila shots passed around.”
The “Rih32” bash also included a colorful balloon arch and a Rihanna piñata inspired by her look at the Fashion Awards. The birthday gal twerked before blowing out the candles on her three-tiered cake as friends chanted “It’s your birthday, bitch.”
“They partied all night long with music, drinks, a birthday cake and cupcakes for Rihanna,” adds the insider. “She was in her element with the people she loves and having a great time.”
The music and fashion icon, entrepreneur, and philanthropist will return to L.A. to accept the President’s Award during the 51st NAACP Image Awards on Saturday. Previous recipients have included JAY-Z, Jesse Jackson, Lauryn Hill, and Muhammad Ali.
She was also recently in the studio with The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo working on music for her long-awaited ninth album.
