Rihanna Promotes Barbados Tourism With Hometown Concert: “Nothing Feels Like This Place”


Our now brown-haired Rihanna recently inked a multi-year deal with the Barbados Tourism Authority to promote her hometown island as a tourist destination.

The pop singing icon kicked off the relationship with the BTA at the Kensington Oval during her trip to Barbados last week. She  rocked the stage for over 25,000 fans during a concert which was produced by Roc Nation.

During the close-to-home performance, literally and figuratively, she tells the crowd how much the experience means to her:

“I travel everywhere in the world and nothing feels like this place… never. And it all started like really two streets over from this oval where I grew up, where I was raised, right there in Westbury — singing in the shower, annoying my neighbors. Now I’m back home with a full-on concert for my country. Thanks to you, Barbados!”

Aw, our Bajan Vixen is all grown up!
