Pop star Rihanna --who's been clubhopping in Los Angeles lately --is all smiles as she arrives in Honolulu with a girlfriend on Wednesday.
But call this a "working vacation." It's her first stint back in a recording studio since she was allegedly assaulted by former boyfriend, R&B singer Chris Brown last February.
Rihanna will spend several days in Hawaii, using a famous recording studio that's also used by stars such as Kanye West.

Although cameras caught the Umbrella singer at the airport in Honolulu, she somehow managed to slip past paps at LAX Airport when she left for Hawaii.
Meanwhile next Monday, Brown will be in court in Los Angeles to enter a plea on charges relating to the alleged attack.
If convicted of assaulting Rihanna, Brown could face a sentence ranging from probation to nearly five years in state prison.
