Rihanna spent a few days in the Cuban capital last week to record a music video. Cuban state media said that she arrived in Havana on Wednesday making an unannounced appearance at the La Fontana restaurant. On Friday fans lined the streets to get a glimpse of the Bad Girl of pop while she was cruising down Malecon shore boulevard in a classic American convertible from the 1950s.
Rihanna jetted from New York, to London, to Miami then on to Cuba in only 3 days. If she felt jet-lagged she certainly didn’t look it, oozing self confidence and general fabulousness.
Rihanna recorded video footage in the central district of El Vedado and at the La Guarida restaurant, where the Cuban movie Strawberry and Chocolate was filmed.
