There still might be drama with Chris Brown, but Life & Style can exclusively report that Rihanna celebrated her 21st birthday in style: going to a movie with friends and then partying the night away!
"Rihanna, accompanied by some pals, first went to an early showing of Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail in Santa Monica" an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "She looked beautiful. She was wearing glasses, so you couldn't see her eyes, but she looked fine to me."
After the movie, Rihanna hit up the Hollywood Hills for a birthday party in her honor. "People were scrambling at her feet to make sure her every wish was granted. There was birthday cake, champagne, you name it!" a party guest tells Life & Style.
And how did the songstress handle all the attention? "She was a bit shy at first and kept her glasses on most of the night. But once she saw her old crew and got used to being out, she really got into it. She was even dancing!" the party guest reveals. "You could tell she was happy to be out. She needed it."
The party wrapped up with her friends serenading her with "Happy Birthday." "That definitely made her smile!" the party guest says. "She's healing and it will take time, but she still looked beautiful."
