Escaping the widespread international big freeze, many celebrities have been seeking the warmth of the Caribbean sunshine and the comfort of its turquoise waters as they enjoy some winter Caribbean holidays in Barbados

Celebrities escape Winter Blues with Barbados holidays
A number of celebrities have chosen to spend part of this unbearably cold winter on sunnier landscapes, and many have chosen to do so by taking Caribbean holidays on the sunny, sandy shores of Barbados.
Topping the list of A-listers enjoying Barbados holidays was Barbados' own superstar singer Rihanna, who jetted in just before Christmas to spend time with family and friends.
"So as she spends Christmas with her friends and family on the Caribbean island, the singer is making sure she has as much fun as possible," – London’s Daily Mail reported this week when talking about what a busy year 2010 will be for the singer.
"Rihanna had better make the most of her downtime, as 2010 is likely to be another busy year for her. Her album Rated R made the top five in the [United States], but failed to make the same impact here in [Britain], despite her appearance on X Factor.
"But for now, the Barbadian, who now has 12 million record sales under her belt, is going to rest easy. Although, as an ambassador to her country's tourism industry, she'll no doubt be mixing a little bit of business with pleasure."
The newspaper added that after a tumultuous year involving the much-publicised bust-up with former boyfriend Chris Brown, clearly some relaxing time on Barbados holidays “provided a chance for her [to] reflect".
In a message on her website, Rihanna stated: "To all my fans, thank you for being amazingly supportive and loyal this year . . . . Happy Holidays to you and your families."
Other celebrities, most of whom were British, were spotted taking Barbados holidays and making hay while the sun shines. Top stars included newly-rekindled Hollywood couple Jude Law and Sienna Miller.
The two, seemed happy together as they sat side by side and soaked up the sun on the West Coast. They reunited just in time to spend their birthdays together - she turned 28 and he 37 this week – and they celebrated their reunion and birthdays with romantic Barbados holidays.
Other celebrities on Barbados holidays this Christmas included American Idol and X Factor mogul Simon Cowell, who took up his usual spot at the plush Sandy Lane hotel; former England star Gary Lineker and his wife Danielle Bux, a Welsh lingerie model; the Sugababes; Topshop boss Sir Philip Green; December 2008 X Factor winner Alexandra Burke; British pop singer, TV personality and glamour model Michelle Heaton; X Factor winner and British superstar Leona Lewis; and TV presenter Emma Forbes.
