Rihanna struggles to wind down, felt 'awful' on vacation

Rihanna has revealed that the month-long vacation she took at the beginning of 2012 was far from relaxing and left her "dreaming" about work.

The 'Disturbia' hitmaker showed incredible dedication to her career in last year with her Loud world tour, which saw her perform just under an impressive 100 dates around the globe, but took a well-deserved break in January that left her feeling anything but refreshed and calm.

She explained to Elle magazine: "(I had been) dreaming about it for the entirety of 2011... (but) I felt awful. I kept thinking, and that drove me nuts."

"I kept feeling like something wasn't getting done, like I was being irresponsible. I knew this was going to be a big year, and I felt like I wasn't doing anything about it. I had such anxiety, I was going crazy."

Earlier this month, Rihanna confirmed to Capital FM that she will hit the road once again in 2013 for an even "bigger" and more "impactful" tour:

"We're going to be going on tour next year. So this year we're spending out time planning to make sure it's bigger than anything we've done and something more impactful, maybe something different, so my fans can get excited about it."
