Rihanna Let's Paint This Town Red ... And Yellow And Purple

Rihanna went hard in the paint over the weekend in her native Barbados.

It's called Foreday Morning Jump Up, an annual street party that starts the night before and finishes off with a sunrise paint fight ... which we gotta say, sounds like a blast and right up RiRi's alley.

RiRi came locked and loaded with a water gun in one hand and bottle of yellow paint in the other, but still managed to get caught in the crossfire.

Luckily ... her daisy dukes took most of the blows. She didn't keep them on for long though. RiRi cleaned up real nice ... opting for more traditional party attire later when hopping on a Carnival float.
