Music superstar Rihanna turned 27 yesterday, February 20th. Before kicking off her celebratory festivities, the Bajan beauty penned a personal letter to her legion of social media followers.
27 years ago, my mother gave birth to her very first child at the tender age of 27! Life is never a piece of birthday cake, but I feel special that I was chosen by my Father in Heaven to make it here! And each year that goes by I am more grateful! Every day we wake up, means we get another chance at life….to live what we've learned and to discover even more, to be good to other people and to know that you are a part of their smile! I cherish these days, and I pray that God will spare my life to see many more! #Feb20.
Later than evening, Rihanna celebrated her birthday in style, and friends Jay Z, Beyoncé, and more hit the party scene for her special surprise night.
