After landing on Forbes' Highest Paid Women in 2012 list, Rihanna treated herself to a generous and early Christmas present.

The "Diamonds" singer recently purchased a $12 million mansion in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, Calif. The 24-year-old singer's new home is around 11,000 square feet, sits on a 33,541 sq. ft. lot and has a 6,000 sq. ft. backyard. 

The palatial estate has seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, an extra-large dining room with a 14-foot ceiling, media rooms, and a four-car garage, according to X17 Online. Aerial shots of the home show an outdoor barbecue and bar area, a wide swimming pool, a sun deck, Jacuzzi.

"I literally wake up every morning at 530 ish and stare at my pool til the sun comes up! Just waiting! #isthismylife," she tweeted about her new home. 

The singer, who released her seventh album "Unapologetic" in November, reportedly complained that her previous Beverly Hills home had too many water leaks.

The Bajan beauty received another Christmas present earlier this week when her record label Roc Nation gave her a Porsche 911 Turbo. Rihanna reportedly discovered the sports car parked outside of her new house, with a huge ribbon with the Roc Nation branding on its roof.

The "Umbrella" singer expressed her gratitude for the new $160,000 ride on Twitter: "Ain't nobody phuckin wit my clique!! Thank you to my Roc brothers! I love you guys, y'all are crazy for getting me this bad ass ho." 

The gift was from Jay-Z, who heads Roc Nation, and the label's team for all of her success this year. Rihanna's latest single, "Diamonds," is at the top of the Billboard charts for its 11th consecutive week.
