Rihanna celebrated her belated 21st birthday with cocktails and cupcakes on Tuesday (10Mar09) - just weeks after she was forced to call off her original party while recovering from her alleged fight with Chris Brown.
The Umbrella hitmaker - whose actual birthday was 20 February - took a gang of friends to Hollywood hot spot Coco de Ville, where they sat in a private area.
The birthday girl, who hid behind sunglasses all night, appeared to be in good spirits as she danced in her seat to music by rappers T.I. and 50 Cent.
She was later presented with a dessert tower made of pink cupcakes and decorated with sparklers and birthday candles.
A source tells People.com, "She looked good and was smiling and laughing."
R&B star Brown has been charged with assault and making criminal threats after an allegedly violent argument with the singer on the night of 8 February (09).
