Rihanna wants her fans to know she plays as hard as she works. After finishing a grueling European and South American tour, the pop singer is kicking back in Hawaii. She tweeted new photos having a blast in the Aloha state.

Rihanna hasn’t let clothes get in the way of her vacation. She wore only a tiny white bikini in all but one of the photos she tweeted. She even worked out in her swimsuit.

“Haha, come tap this @Khloekardashian!!!” the 23-year-old singer tweeted along with the workout photo. Rihanna also had fun with her friends. One photo shows her pointing a long telephoto camera lens at the backside of another scantily clad woman.

When someone tweeted back, asking about how she stays trim, she answered: “Angles, Lighting, Photoshop :).” More likely, it’s because of the grueling work schedule during her recent tour.

Her string of shows, plus reported late night partying and boozing, pushed her to the breaking point. Rihanna called off her second show in three days on Nov. 2, with her reps claiming she was suffering from exhaustion and a bout of the flu.

She tweeted a shocking photo of herself at the time, hooked up to an IV drip in a hospital in Sweden, while tweeting her apologies for canceling a show. Her handlers were concerned enough to put her on a 24-hour health watch.

Tabloids overseas suggested that Rihanna was drinking heavily and partying until all hours at clubs after her shows.

Rihanna’s saucy photos helped push her over the 12 million mark in Twitter followers yesterday (Jan. 18) “I love u so much! Can’t believe we’re here already… #12Milli thank u.” she wrote.

Rihanna plans to get back to work at the 2012 Grammy Awards. She confirmed over Twitter that she will be performing for the show. She’ll appear with Coldplay to sing their collaboration “Princess of China.”

“My friends @ColdPlay and I will be sharing the stage for a performance at this years Annual Grammy Awards!’

Rihanna is also currently the face of Armani jeans. She looked stunning in a newly release series of photos for the brand.
