It is 9.30PM and Rihanna is being celebrated in song by the best musical talent which Barbados has to offer in Independence Square, Bridgetown, Barbados. The tribute is occasioned by Rihanna’s capturing a Grammy Award and her international success over the last 3 years. Prime Minister David Thompson has wasted no time in setting things in motion to recognize his fellow Combermerian and world famous Superstar. Rihanna entered the Square in style aboard a boat commanded by the one arm cancer Olympian Andrew Burke. Many Barbadians were anticipating that Jay Z, who signed her to his international label Def Jam would have accompanied her to Barbados, it turned out to be Chris Brown the American Pop Star. The Internet has been congested with the buzz in recent times about a romantic association between the two. The fact that he has accompanied her on this special occasion maybe enough to confirm the deal. Rihanna was flabbergasted when in a proclamation read by Minister of Culture Mr. Steve Blackett she was elevated to Youth & Culture Ambassador for Barbados. She was also given a piece of land in the exclusive and ritzy part of the island, a place called Apes Hill. Finally the crowd went wild when Chris Brown was asked to visit the stage to cut the cake with Rihanna. We are back to the TV to enjoy the rest of the celebration!
