Rihanna celebrated her street naming ceremony Versace'd down this weekend.  And that's why we love her.  Get into her epic moment that officially made her a legend in the Barbados streets and more inside...

We all know Rihanna is basically the queen of Barbados, but now the Bajan beauty has made it official with a street named after her in her home country.

The cosmetics mogul and pop star has been making major money moves all year, so it's only right she gets commemorated in street signage on the island.

Fenty Corp's HBIC hit the streets to celebrate all weekend rocking plenty of Versace and her own Fenty Beauty Galaxy collection:

Before celebrating, RiRi was living up to her Little Miss Sunshine name in a mini Hellessy dress for her big ceremony.

The street she grew up on, Westbury Road, was renamed to Rihanna Drive.  She dished on how she met her longtime bestie Melissa Forde and how the Westbury community made her the woman she is today:

 

 

a day my people and I will never forget! all the lessons, running around barefoot, nosey neighbors, braiding hair on the step, playing in the cemetery, walking to the beach, rum shop karaoke keeping the whole street awake til 4am ("only the lonely" by Roy Orbison is playing in my head as I type this) , stealing Sammy pomegranates from his tree, begging my mother to let me walk to Jan's shop cause she had American snacks, selling plastic/glass bottles to Peter so I could buy those American snacks, getting my hair hot combed for Harvest at church, doing my homework on my front step while Miss Hyacinth yells "ya gon get belly hurt from dat cold step" across from her veranda, watching iFE walk past with her dreads dragging on the floor like a couture gown, all the times I thought Melissa came to hang out with me, turns out she was dating my next door neighbor all along, rushing to do dishes when my mother's high heels start hitting the pavement as she gets off the bus from work......right here on this street! WESTBURY is more than a community, we're family!!! Thank you for all that you've poured into my life and the woman I am! It takes a village, and I'm glad my village was you!!!! To God be the Glory!!!! #RiRiDrive
