Rihanna Gives Oprah A Tour Of Barbados

Idolator Staff | August 6, 2012 3:00 pm

Rihanna was photographed yesterday (Aug. 5) exploring her native island of Barbados, but she wasn’t there to merely soak up the sun. The pop star played tour guide for Oprah Winfrey, and showed the media mogul around her hometown while they filmed a segment for Rihanna’s upcoming Oprah’s Next Chapter interview. (The special airs Aug. 19 on the OWN network.) Dressed in color-coordinated outfits — Ri sported an aqua floral-print dress, and Oprah wore this all-green ensemble — the women drove around in a Jeep for some quality Caribbean bonding time. In case you were worried the TV host was out to stir the pot with a little “gotcha journalism” during the interview, rest assured, Oprah only had kind words for the singer, tweeting: “What a refreshing surprise she is!”
