Rihanna Named Barbados Tourism Ambassador

by at . Comments

Barbados' native daughter has been declared a tourism ambassador for the island nation. Rihanna definitely brings star power to the position!

RiRi's Caribbean heritage was a major part of her early appeal in the "Pon de Replay" days, and remains a big part of who she is as a person.

Now the star is getting back in touch with her roots, inking a deal with the Barbados Tourism Authority to promote her beautiful homeland.

"Barbados is a place like no other and one of the reasons for this is the spirit and national pride of our people," Rihanna said in a statement.

"I want every visitor to experience what makes this destination different from all others and that is the spirit and warmth of my fellow Barbadians."

The Barbados Tourism Authority said via Facebook: "We are proud to announce that musical sensation and social phenomenon Rihanna has partnered with the Barbados Tourism Authority as an exclusive promotional partner for three years.

"Celebrate this amazing announcement today by joining us on August 5th as she brings her Loud tour to Bridgetown, Barbados, her homeland."
