Rihanna Takes You INSIDE Her Family Life In Barbados

The holidays are all about spending time with and appreciating your loved ones. So Rihanna decided to give her fans a personal look inside her family life with her mom and "Gran Gran".  Check out footage from her previous trip to Barbados inside....

 

Rihanna's clip is narrated by Jay-Z as he describes how important family life is to keep artists grounded and to make them who they are.

In the video, Rihanna surprises her grandma with a Cartier ring after recalling a time when she saw a ring she wanted to get for her, but knew there was no way she could save up enough money to get it.

Rih also revealed earlier this week that her fave Thanksgiving food is candied yams..."with a side of Birthday Cake."  She also tweeted yesterday:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! #imthankfulfor the blessing of life, it means u have a 2nd chance!And all the people n my life, Friends Fam Fans Foes

And how did she spend her Turkey Day? 

Hosting an impromptu Thanksgiving dinner for 100 guests, including her entire band and crew, at O'Donoghue's pub on Merrion Row in Ireland.  According to the Daily Star, she chose a menu of clam chowder soup and a turkey dinner with mash, vegetables and cranberry sauce as part of her menu. Plus macaroni and cheese, sweet potato mash with marshmallow sauce and apple cobbler with biscuit crumble.

um... who told you her family

um... who told you her family wasn't living large? I'm from Barbados and the area her family lives in is the richest on the entire island. they have an estate there and many huge homes. before you open your mouth to talk shit, try doing a little research & try even harder to stop hating. it's pathetic.

Ri is a Millionaire ,her Fam

Ri is a Millionaire ,her Fam is Not,why should their Lifestyle change just because of her,I'm sure as long as their Bills are Paid and Don't have to Worry about anything ,they are Happy.There is Nothing wrong with being HUMBLE. They are keeping it REAL,that is why Ri likes going Home,because these are the REALEST people in her LIFE,they are Not trying to take from her or use her.

Sweet.. I am such a cry

Sweet.. I am such a cry baby.. This vid has me in tears.. Three years, since I lost my Grandmother. She was my favorite person. Rihanna's experience brings back memories.. My best times were when my mom, my Grandma and I would be at "Grandmo's house", it was something special. She was my best, always available, comforting and had all the right answers to my dynamic situations. It was a special union. My mom was the youngest of ten kids. My mom had an identical twin sister who burned when they were five, so everyone mercied and spoiled my mom.. We were the closest to my Grandma. I, on the other hand am my moms only daughter, career student with no kids, and found my grandmother to be one of the most facinating and wise person i'd met. I love family. My Grandma always said, I was "Sassy" I try to dumb it do wn but, "Wouldn't you agree?" LOL.. Quoting of JayZ, I love when he says "Wouldn't you agree?" I often ask, while tutoring... Anyway, I am so thankful for family, we had a good time yesterday.. They make me feel like a kid, and like, I can be just "Me" unadulterated, not Ms. Rankin, nor Sister Netice, not even LOVE365, just Teice, easily tickled, southern dialect, sweet me. My family makes me feel carefree.. They all influenced, and strengthened and imparted, dignity, humility, humour, selflessness, and the ability to forgive into my life. I enjoyed this clip, and respect Princess Rih even the more.. She is not simply iconic. She's a sister and daughter with real emotions, making us all more alike than different.. It takes boldness to expose oneself... Nice of her to share that part of her life.. With LOVE 365..

All cute but why everytime

All cute but why everytime she gotta release an album or there is bad press, they gotta turn up the: BABY PICS TEENAGE PICS, EXTENDED FAMILY PICS, BACK AT HOME VIDEOS. Heck, Nicki did it too just before the release of an album. This is the new publicity stunt. Nekkid pics and sextapes are played out so as MJ would put it *THIS IS IT* Nice family. Wish the wheels that turn and run showbiz would stop using them as pawns. And Jay-Z on that ish just seals the ratchedness of Showbiz in this mutha.

THANK YOU!! At least I'm not

THANK YOU!! At least I'm not the only one who sees through this "home video". Not sayin that Rihanna doesn't have a great relationship with her fam, or that they aren't down to earth, genuine West Indian people with decent values... but the fact that this coincides with her album release is just sooooo transparent! Plus it's being narrated by her boss. I mean... give me a break! Also... for a candid home movie this shit has some top of the line video + audio quality... good angles... nice tight shot of the Cartier gift bag. *side-eye* You're so right...sneak peeks into an artist's "real life" is the new sextape/naked pics...

Lovely, really sweet. Loved

Lovely, really sweet. Loved the mother telling Ri's brother not to spend time on Facebook. He looks so much like his sister and is gonna be a looker in a few years. Interesting those people commenting on the house being run down, is it really? Even if it were I guess you missed the point of the video. It's about family dummies. Maybe if you had that kind of love and emotional security in your lives you wouldn't need to focus on material things first. Not sure why Jay Z was doing the v/o sounded altogether too random. Shouldn't it have been Rihanna seeing as it's her family.

Jay sounds likes he is reading out of a first grade elementary book " See Jane run. Run Jane run" I hope their child does not talk like either one of them ( speech impediments ).....allllll-right

Cute video, there's nothing

Cute video, there's nothing like family. However I do wish someone else was chose to narrate. Jay Z sounds much better when he raps, story telling is not his forte. He needs to leave that to the voice over professionals. This man just has to have a hand in everything even if he sounds lame. smh

You dumb ass haters had me thinking that grangran live in a shack. At least the walls were clean. I bet the people with the negative comments got dirty wall with holes in them. They don't need a mansion-the ocean is they backyard. You'd do better if you stop the negativity!!

What do you all expect to see

What do you all expect to see when Rhianna goes home? This is not surprising to see her interacting with her family in a loving and humble manner these are the people whom she grew up with and were raised by. There is nothing wrong with the modest home they live in, because all their financial needs are being met, they are comfortable and safe so what's the problem everybody is not concerned with keeping up with the Jones'es or showboat? Only in America you find society puts more value on materialism than Jehovah,Jesus,Allah or family values. Rhianna is human, but like they say "When in Rome Do As The Romans Do". And when Rhianna is here she certainly does! This girl has convinced her family that she has a oversexualized image for career purposes only, but in reality she is battling some real Demons. Jay-Z is simply giving his longtime lover some quality time and that's why he's there, pretending to be working on business when he knows damn well it's pleasure.

How do you know Jay Z was

How do you know Jay Z was there. "A man thinketh what he does" Do you sleep with all the men in your life? I was so concerned with Rihanna and her family and was not concerned with environment. Then I went and look again but I did not see a damn thing wrong with the house. Nice and pleasant kitchen and Rihanna is beautiful. Grudgeful bad minded people. Guh Whey!!!!!!

I thought the video was very

I thought the video was very sweet and made Rihanna more likeable. However, all of the sweet videos in the world won't have my checking for "Talk That Talk." Also, why on EARTH was Jay-Z narrating the video? His voice was just so startling and totally took away from the quite and calming effect of the intimate family moment. What, was Morgan Freeman unavailable? TheQueenofHearts

I bought the Talk that Talk

I bought the Talk that Talk album and I actuallly liked it. I was taking a long road trip to see family for ThanksGiving and forgot my ipod, so I stopped by Wal-Mart to get some cds. Ordinarily, I would never ever ever by a Rihanna cd, but it was pretty good. That "You Da One" song stays on repeat and the "We All" track is good too. The little interlude "Cake" is good too. The album is short though. I mean it won't move me or shit, like an Adele or Lauryn Hill album, but that's not what she does. She's making party/pop tracks. I think people who like that stuff would like her album.
