Congrats are in order!

Our favorite Island gyal, Rihanna has been appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary for her native Barbados. In her new role, she “will be expanding on the previous role she had as cultural ambassador in 2008. Her “multidimensional achievements and global influence” will lend to her new responsibilities, which include promoting education, tourism and investment.”

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley released a statement in support of this decision.

“Rihanna has a deep love for this country and this is reflected in her philanthropy, especially in areas of health and education. She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to this country and continues to treasure the island as her home.”

The Fenty Beauty star said “she couldn’t be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home.”

“Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I’m ready and excited to take on the responsibility. I look forward to working with Prime Minister Mottley and her team to reimagine Barbados.”
