Rihanna was snapped in LA yesterday and she couldn't keep the smile off her face as she walked through the airport.
RiRi, who usually hates being papped and keeps her head firmly down, was laughing and smiling at the photographers.
Rihanna confirmed this week that she is back with Chris Brown. Copyright [Splash]She was even (shock horror) wearing clothes - a pair of jeans AND a jumper, with hardly any flesh on display. What is going on.
Perhaps it's the relief about finally coming clean about Chris Brown. Whilst it was fairly obvious the pair were back together, Rihanna hadn't officially spoken about their relationship.
She said: "I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
