Nothing like laying out in the sun in a fabulous private villa in Hawaii. Rihanna would know. She does it often. And this weekend is no exception. Peep her saucy bikini pics inside….

Instead of hitting the second weekend of Coachella this weekend, Rihanna”s got more personal matters to tend to: Her god friend who helps mange her career, Jenn Rosales, is getting married. And in true Ri crew form, she tying the not on 4/20 in Hawaii.

So Rihanna, Melissa Forde and co. are having some fun at their private Hawaiian villa while Jenn gets ready to become a Mrs. And you know what that means: An Instagram photoshoot.

The “FourFiveSeconds” singer took her lunch (and blunt) in the middle of the pool. Then her personal photographer Dennis Leupold got to snapping some pics:

Rihanna seems unbothered by news that the new Jay Z owned streaming company TIDAL that she has involvement with just ousted is CEO yesterday.

As the news made the rounds, many believe it’s a tell tale sign of a failing company wh just re-launched recently. Others believe it’s not atypical and could simply be a changing of the guards–nothing more and nothing less.

TIDAL put out their own statement yesterday addressing the situation. And while some reports said TIDAL also fired 25 employees in addition to the CEO the statement minimizes how dramatic it sounds:

TIDAL’s new interum [sic] CEO is Peter Tonstad – a former CEO of parent company Aspiro Group. He has a better understanding of the industry and a clear vision for how the company is looking to change the status quo. He’s streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience. We’ve eliminated a handful of positions and refocused our company-wide talent to address departments that need support and cut redundancies. TIDAL’s offices globally will remain and grow: we are already hiring for several new positions now. We’re excited about our future and what’s in-store for fans who want the best listening experience.

CEO Peter Tonstad says:

I believe in TIDAL and what the team is doing to affect the change the music industry needs. We’re streamlining the company and refocusing our resources to ensure the platform continues to grow, and listeners can make a connection to their favorite artists. No one else is doing this.

We’re here for YBF folks owning and taking the reigns of compainies important to their field of work and beyond….so we wish Tidal the best.
