I was just a little island girl riding bikes, running around barefoot, and flying kits in the cemetery, but I had BIG dreams. “Welcome to Rihanna Drive,” she said in her note.. Rihanna was in Barbados on Thursday for the unveiling of her street Rihanna Drive. The Government of Barbados has officially changed the name of Westbury New Road to #RihannaDrive in her honor ?? “My home. My whole life was shaped on this very road. The street was formerly named Westbury New Road but citizens campaigned for the government to change it to Rihanna Drive in honor of the most famous star ever from the island. She has also been doing some recording and is featured on N.E.R.D comeback single “Lemon.”
Rihanna is also expanding her empire by launching a new Fenty Beauty makeup line that features 40 different shades. You will forever be a part of who I am, and for that, I am honored to have this place named after me.”
Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Fenty, has been having a busy fall with numerous magazine photoshoots including shoots for the cover of Dazed, Vogue Paris, and Vogue Arabia, which she has gotten a bit of a backlash for. The cosmetics line has been a huge hit since its debut in September. Dreams that were born and realized right here. The 29-year-old pop star was honored with placard with a heartfelt message from the hometown queen. pic.twitter.com/f9qPiWmbKY
