After spending the holidays in Barbados, the sexy songstress took off to Las Vegas to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Las Vegas hotspot. Prior to her arrival to PURE, hundreds of admirers lined up along the casino floor next to the nightclub and waited patiently for the celebrity’s arrival. Just after 11 pm, the packed resort was filled with screaming and cheering guests as Rihanna made her way to the red carpet. Donning an attention-grabbing and revealing red and see-through dress, the edgy fashion forward stunner turned heads as she posed for pictures.

As she was being escorted inside the club, the Barbadian beauty was welcomed with a mind-blowing roar from the excited crowd. Not stopping to say hi to fans or take pictures, Rihanna quickly rushed to her VIP table located on the nightclub’s main stage. Joining the chart-topper were 10 of her closest friends, family and tight security team. However, boyfriend Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dogers was nowhere in sight. Earlier this week, news flourished that the singer had split with Kemp who had been dating for almost a year. Despite her rumored breakup, the “Only Girl” singer was in good spirits throughout the evening as she was seen smiling, having a good time and dancing while sipping on Belvedere Vodka and orange juice.

Rather than being front and center, Rihanna opted to stay out of the public eye as much as possible by hiding behind her friends and security team. Fans that could not get a glimpse of her started chanting her name as they waited patiently to see her. But as soon as the DJ played her hit single “Rude Boy” the camera-shy singer loosened up and gave the crowd got its first sighting of the celebrity. She came up to the front with her hands up in the air and danced along to the track.

Just before midnight, Rihanna took center stage as she amped up the crowd by getting on the mic and prepping them for the anticipated countdown to 2011. With only 10 seconds left in 2010, she lead the countdown to midnight followed by raising her glass and toasting the packed club and wishing everyone a Happy New Year. There was no special kiss for her at midnight, but did hug the close friends that surrounded her.
