Media mogul Oprah Winfrey took a trip down to Barbados to hang out with island native Rihanna, but it wasn’t just to catch up and soak in some sun (although we’re not knocking those things off the list).
Rihanna got a visit from Oprah Winfrey over the weekend. The two ladies met up in the singer’s native Barbados to film for Ri’s upcoming appearance on ”Oprah’s Next Chapter,” airing August 19 on OWN.
Both women tweeted about the meet-up. “What a refreshing surprise she is!” Oprah wrote about her chat with the VMA-nominated superstar.She then tweeted out a photo of the pair walking together — Oprah in all green, while Rihanna sported an aqua-colored, floral-print, full-length dress.
The excitement for the chat was felt on both ends with Rihanna tweeting, “Look who popped up in my Hometown BARBADOS #topnotch.” She included a photo of the twosome in a car with Rihanna behind the wheel.
The one-on-one interview for Oprah’s Next Chapter, which will reminisce on the singer’s journey to becoming a superstar will air on August 19. Oprah dedicated an episode of her talk show to domestic violence after the 2009 assault of Rihanna by Chris Brown, but Rihanna did not appear on the show.
