Rihanna has become “Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary" in her homeland Barbados.  The position focuses on promoting education, tourism and investment for the island.

According to a release from the Government Information Service in Barbados, “Robyn ‘Rihanna’ Fenty” was given the title because she is an “outstanding Barbadian who has contributed significantly to raising the island’s profile across the world.”

“She has demonstrated, beyond her success as a pop icon, significant creative acumen and shrewdness in business. It is therefore fitting that we engage and empower her to play a more definitive role as we work to transform Barbados.”

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

In accepting the honour, RiRi said, “I couldn't be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. 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.”

Congratulations to her.
