Rihanna has been an extraordinary ambassador for Barbados since Thursday. 

The government of the island stated in a statement that the singer is appointed as "extraordinary ambassador with power of attorney, with special attention to promoting education, tourism, and investment in the island."

“Robyn ‘Rihanna’ Fenty has been given the title because she is a prominent Barbadian resident who has contributed significantly to the image of the island in the world”, says a statement from the government. “With her charity work, especially in the field of health and education, Rihanna has shown her great love for this country.”

 

The singer was already cultural ambassador of Barbados. She looks forward to her new job, she said in a statement. “I could not have been more proud of this prestigious title in my homeland, and I can not wait to work with Prime Minister Mottley on a new image for Barbados.”
