Why Rihanna Hasn't Started Christmas Shopping Yet
Rihanna hasn't started her Christmas shopping yet. The 24-year-old superstar has been so busy promoting her new album Unapologetic - for which she performed in seven capital cities in seven different countries in seven days - that she accidentally left her present buying until the last minute and is panicking about what to buy her youngest brother Rajad.
She said: "I've not started, not a single thing yet. I'm so drenched in work for my new album Unapologetic ... The most difficult is my little brother because he's getting to an age where toys aren't fun anymore. What shall I get my bro? Any 16 year olds, tweet me."
The Bajan beauty - who this week split from her on/off boyfriend Chris Brown for good - doesn't want material things for Christmas and is praying instead that her 2013 Diamonds World Tour will be a huge success.
Speaking to Britain's OK! magazine, she insisted: "I want a sold-out Diamonds World Tour. That's what I really, really want. I want that so bad."
Another thing that won't be on Rihanna's wish list for Santa this year is a baby, because the Only Girl In The World hitmaker is focused on getting the most out of her career first.
Asked whether she wanted a family within the next five years, she said: "Definitely not in five years! Eventually I want a family. God has a way of working things out the way he wants to and you have no say in that."
Even though Chris was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service for assaulting her in February 2009, Rihanna gave the R&B singer another chance and reconciled with him this year.
But she was left reeling recently after Chris was pictured partying with scantily-clad girls on tour in Paris, France, and enjoying a meal with his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran in Dubai and she posted a message on her Instagram account on Tuesday (18.12.12) confirming their relationship is over.
Rihanna, wrote: "Being single sucks. The only thing I get to do anymore is whatever the f*** I want to do."
