Rihanna: Come To Barbados! I'm The New Tourism Ambassador!

She's constantly spotted prancing around in her bikinis on the beaches of Barbados.  So why not get paid for it?  Rihanna wants you to experience her home country of Barbados, so she's signed on to become a tourism ambassador for her home island.  Deets inside....

 

"Rude Boy" singer Rihanna has joined forces with Barbados' tourism authority to promote her homeland and draw in more visitors.

Speaking about her new job as a tourism ambassador, she said:

"Barbados is a place like no other and one of the reasons for this is the spirit and national pride of our people. I want each and every visitor to this beautiful island to experience what makes this destination different from all others and that is the spirit and warmth of my fellow Barbadians."

The carribean pop starlet's been spotted vacationing, beaching, and visiting family there pretty often over the years.  And to kick off her official duties, she will bring her 'Loud' tour to her hometown of Bridgetown in August.

For their part, The Barbados Tourism Authority said:

"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 5 as she brings her 'Loud' tour to Bridgetown, Barbados, her homeland."

And Rihanna is excited about the concert.  She recently tweeted:

#LOUDtourBARBADOS I comin home! I promise wunna eeeevery every since! Luv wunna BAD like sweetbread!!! My island in de sun! (Only 4 Bajans)

We love some good vacay pics so let's get the party started....

Hi guys, why do we get so

Hi guys, why do we get so personal when it comes to musicians/singers ? I find that these days its not about the music anymore. Everyone wants to behave as if the artists offended them in a personal way. Its not the musician's or singers fault that they have a following either big or small. Everyone has their own thing and contribute in their own way. Rihanna is not the first or last singer that people will rave about. Its her time just like all the others that had their time. I'm sure that some of the singers that some of you are comparing her to are some of her idols and you people fail to remember that greats like Bob Marley, Michael Jackson etc etc inspired singers like Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Beyonce etc etc to do their thing and its up to the individual singer to continue to contribute what they can and keep music alive. People ...its all about the music and bringing a little joy to this sad world that soo needs a little more love and happiness amidst all the crap that's happening.

You uninformed, ignorant person! Have you ever been to Barbados that you are spewing such verbal diarrhea? First of all I am from the BEAUTIFUL island that is BARBADOS and am proud to call myself a BAJAN. It is only obvious she would come to the USA you dumb ass as it is a much bigger market than Barbados and therefore easier for her to make her millions, probably off of retarded people like you! :) (that's how nice we are over here)

Barbados is not a slum. come one..this year so far we have had 10 murders Trni about what 68 and Jamaica 300+ Th=ourist that travel to Jamaice stay at the resort, they have lots of all inclusive hotels. Barbados has 1. When i take the bus tourist are always travelling too in Barbados you can b free. This is just marketing guys Barbados' tourims has been increasing and we hvae the highest rate of returning tourist so .. idk..you think about what you are saying ppl just hate thats all. Our education system is 10 times better than that of the US. Rihanna is a greattt Barbadian, who is making money do not be jealous cause we can afford to travel to the states and you cannot afford to travel here..Dumbasses

as we can see from your comment #1 you are a hater & #2 you are an ignorant idiot, we didn't make ourselves, she's a beautiful black woman and despite what you or anyone says she's making money so apparently she's liked enough that people actually spend money on her cds. Further more, she's a barbadian & we are a country that thrives off of tourism so why not colaberate with one of our own to increase this. I hope we don't see your ass down here!

my husband is bajan and we

my husband is bajan and we visited barbados last summer. the island does not have much there and it is small. the women were very mean and jealous but overall the people were nice and life was sweet and slow. the only fast food from america was KFC!!!!! i was so fucking hungry, lol and it was so freaking hot, no damn air conditioning except in some of the shops and businesses in the city and then the air was not cold enough just cool! ughh but i would live there
Anonymous's picture

Why would women here be mean

Why would women here be mean and jealous, clearly you picked up a some bajan man who probably had numerous women before he married you so maybe you just ran into some of his other flames. When you came to the caribbean, you come to experience something different, we have many places to eat here besides KFC, some of them are American franchises plus we have lots if international cuisines and very delicious bajan dishes, when you come on vacation you need to travel with enough money to enjoy & feed yourself then you would be able to eat more than KFC, that goes for the accommodation too. So don't bother to come on here and bad talk my country, we are smart, the women don't need the beach bums we leave them for women like you who are unhappy at home.

Sweetie you can experience

Sweetie you can experience that same shit any hood in the great ole USA, especially down south. There is poverty in every country and yours aint no different. I live in Port Charles a gated community in Barbados, you can you tube it.It is well maintained, and I have all the ammenities of a major city at my walking distance. So I am sorry that you hooked up with a piss poor Bajan, but he does not represent the entire island. Another thing dumb dumb, how the hell are you going to compare an island to a country. I see that you are not that smart huh, maybe it is your poor school system. I have traveled extensively in the US and was shocked at how black people live in cities like Detroit, Baltimore and Newark so please don't go on like if every one in the US is doing well because people like me that travel we know better.

I love Barbados. It's so nice

I love Barbados. It's so nice and peaceful and naturally beautiful. I've also been to Jamaica (Negril and Mo Bay), Bahamas (Nassau) and T&T. They were are cool for different reasons but I fell in love with Barbados and have been back several times. I will say that Negril was really really beautiful (probably the prettiest because they have the gorgeous beaches and the lush greenery in the hills) but the men are overly friendly and the women (that I encountered...again, that I encountered) were aggressive and unfriendly. A girl threw her hand up in my face as I was walking by, just because. Another girl hopped in front of me and my friend in line at a club simply because she could tell (I guess) that we were foreign. Her friends stood aside laughing and staring us down. I just smiled it off (I'm on vacation, who cares) and both incidents were so obvious, the girls wanted beef, but it's a shame you gotta watch chicks simply for being you. Also encountered these same types in the Bahamas. Had a girl bump me (hard as hell when there was plenty of room) and then just stare at me and walk on...I understand not liking tourists (I GUESS, we're just there to get some sun and spend some damn money) but it's not like I'm NOT in a tourist area, geeze. Never had anything like this happen in Barbados. The people there are lovely and chill, even though, no matter what island you visit, they all seem to have negative opinions of African Americans (had people in both Barbados and Bahamas tell me so). Either way, to be honest, I'd return to Jamaica too and just be prepared to fight in the midst of drinkin my rum punch *shrugs* but Barbados will always be my favorite vacation place.

You should have followed the

You should have followed the advice I was given in Jamaica and Bahamas - Stay on the resort. lol Seriously, that's what I was told but I'm too much of an adventurer to not explore. I didn't have the experiences you did though, the locals were accomodating in Jamaica, especially.
