Inside Rihanna’s Epic 32nd Birthday Bash

Our president, Robyn Rihanna Fenty just celebrated her 32nd birthday. Though she has not given us her highly anticipated album, R9 just yet — the fashion, lingerie and beauty mogul still deserves all of our praise.

In recent years, Rihanna has been living her best life. Though she hops on social media every now and then, she’s mostly been concerned with building her beauty and fashion empires. Still, that hasn’t stopped Rihanna from living her best life.

In fact, Rihanna once said, “When you realize who you live for, and who’s important to please, a lot of people will actually start living. I am never going to get caught up in that. I’m going to look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it — and I lived for me.” For her latest birthday, Rihanna certainly lived her best life.

Rihanna says her fame affected her freedom

Though the Fenty queen has always lived her life to the fullest, being in the public eye has affected her freedom. “It’s true that my job puts me in very strange situations,” she told Elle. “And in this job, you actually lose more freedom than you gain. I think a lot of people have it messed up with the whole ‘Once you’re famous, you get everything for free; you get in everywhere; you get to go to whatever party or awards ceremony.’ Those things you minimize in your ordinary life, you don’t realize how much they mean to you when you don’t have that freedom to do that, or the flexibility to do it, in peace. And it’s difficult, you know? It’s a double-edged sword. Because I enjoy what I do, but yeah, fame makes a lot of things easier, but it does make life more difficult.”

Rihanna had an epic birthday bash in Mexico

RiRi has been living in the United States and in London, but she wanted to snag some sun in the middle of February, which is why she chose Mexico as her birthday soiree location.

“Rihanna is having a birthday celebration in Mexico,” a source told E!. “She invited her friends and family down to celebrate turning 32 with her. 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.”

Though 32 isn’t a big birthday for most people, Rihanna didn’t let that deter her. The beauty and music mogul made sure that the decor and the food were on point.

 “There were balloon arrangements, colorful flowers and Mexican decor both indoors and outdoors,” the E! source said. “They had a long outdoor table set up for dinner and the mariachis continued to perform. They partied all night long with music, drinks, a birthday cake and cupcakes for Rihanna,” the source said. And RiRi was thriving: “She was in her element with the people she loves and having a great time.” The singer “danced and sang all night [with a] big smile on her face.”
