Rihanna turns 22 today. What a difference a year makes!
The singer will ring in her birthday with a very "private and intimate" bash thrown for her by her boyfriend, L.A. Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp, according to reports.
Last year, a carnival-themed 21st birthday bash for her in NYC was canceled due to the craziness surrounding the attack she suffered at the hands of Chris Brown.
This year, with that in mind:
"(Matt) really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna as she didn't have much of a 21st birthday last year," says an E! News source. Nice guy, that Matt Kemp.
Rihanna's new man is treating her right!
The party, which was going to be a surprise until she caught on, will be a low-key night with "close friends, Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and cake."
Sounds ideal if you ask us. Hope all your wishes come true, Birthday Girl! Here's a little tribute we put together of Rihanna pictures to mark the special day.
