Rihanna tweeted photos of herself, lounging in her RV/ changing room, smoking a cigarette and fogging up the camera lens.
Proving that her talents run deeper than simply being a 5 time Grammy Award winning singer and Time Magazine’s 4th most powerful celebrity in 2012, Rihanna looked perfectly at home among the leggy, scantily clad Angels who paraded down the Victoria’s Secret runway Wednesday night. The 24 year old looked comfortable in even the most risque lingerie, strutting her stuff in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. You can watch it all on CBS, Tuesday, December 4th at 10/9C.

Rihanna was kind enough to tweet a series of photos of herself backstage with the models, captioning one shot with “That’s a wrizzap.”
In 2012, Rihanna was named the top artist of Billboard‘s Pop Songs Artists of 1992–2012 and the UK’s second biggest selling female singles artist of all time with a combined singles sales tally as a lead artist, of 11.4 million.
The Barbados beauty was on hand to close out the annual show Wednesday night, singing “Fresh Out the Runway” while wearing a sheer pink mini at the end of the parade of lingerie and angel wings.
Earlier in the night, she also wore fashionable shades and a floor-length black gown with a slit cut up to her hip, exposing her toned legs underneath.
Channeling her inner playful angel, Rihanna hammed it up on the catwalk, even dancing with and interacting with the other women as they made their way down the runway.
“I’m a #VS girl now lol,” she tweeted at one point, alongside photos of her mugging with the Victoria’s Secret models.
All this after coming off her sixth album, Talk That Talk in 2011 with the lead single, “We Found Love” topping charts in eighteen countries worldwide. Peaking in the top ten in thirty countries and breaking a string of records all over the globe. Rihanna topped the Billboard Hot 100 with it for ten non-consecutive weeks, and the song became Rihanna’s longest running number one single. It was also the longest running number one single of 2011. Later the music video for “We Found Love” won the award for Video of the Year at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, making Rihanna the first women ever to win this award more than once.
