No signs of illness here.

Just days after canceling her GRAMMYs performance due to illness and postponing ANTI tour dates, Rihanna celebrated turning 28 on Saturday with a birthday bash worthy of a princess. The Barbadian beauty showed off her twerking skills as she danced the night away in a video posted to Snapchat.

In the video, her best friend Melissa Forde makes a request of the birthday girl, "Spin for me! Spin for me!" Rih Rih -- holding a glass of red wine -- happily obliges while grooving to Fetty Wap's "My Way."

On Sunday evening, Rih Rih took to Twitter to thank her fans for the birthday wishes, writing, "Thank you for blessing me with all this love on my birthday! Yesterday was special! One Love Always."

It's been an eventful week for the "Work" singer, to say the least.

On Monday, the songstress canceled her anticipated GRAMMYs performance at the last minute due to illness. Days later, was forced to postpone several dates on her ANTI tour because of production issues. Here's hoping the rest of the year goes by smoothly for Miss Rih Rih!
