(Scroll down for video) Rihanna received a warm welcome in Israel, where she has lots of fans.
As part of her Diamonds World Tour, Rihanna flew in from Greece to Ben Gurion International airport with a private jet.
She later performed in Tel Aviv, to a crowd of 52,000 people.
Before heading to Tel Aviv, Rihanna took some much-needed time off to enjoy Israel’s beautiful Dead Sea. She flew to the Dead Sea in a private helicopter, and took some photos of herself inside and outside of the aircraft.
The 25-year-old showed her toned figure in a bikini as she immersed in the famous Dead Sea, before doing a series of hot photo shoots.
The singer posed with her back to the camera in a black and white shot, with Dead Sea salt dripping down her back as she looked to the side.
She then totally immersed herself in the healing waters, with her feet in the air and her head resting in her hands. Rihanna then went on to perform in Tel Aviv, to a welcoming and excited crowd.
“#TelAviv THANK YOU for making tonight so big for me! We sold out, and became biggest female show in histoRIH to play in your home!!” Rihanna tweeted on Tuesday.
This all came after she was thrown out of a mosque in Abu Dhabi.
The day after her concert in the United Arab Emirates, Rihanna paid a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre, where she posed for a series of photographs while she was fully covered in a black jumpsuit and headscarf.
According to an official statement from the mosque, Rihanna breached the protocol for visiting the revered place of worship.
For starters, Rihanna arrived “at an entrance that was not designated for visitors,” according to the statement.
She showed up at the mosque “without any previous coordination with the administration,” a mosque spokesperson said.
