Rihanna Gets Street Named After Her in Barbados
The street sign was unveiled by the 29-year-old and Prime Minister, Honourable Freundel Stuart of Barbados. Rihanna shared a picture of the brand spankin’ new sign on Instagram with the caption, ‘On any block.’
Is that a milly rock challenge on Rihanna Drive? If so, accepted. During the rainy day ceremony which continued into the evening, Rihanna was moved to tears while watching young girls hold signs that spelled her name and honored her contributions to the Caribbean island.
Rihanna has always been proud of her Barbadian roots. Haven’t we all seen her visiting the island multiple times each year to connect with family and friends? And also to stunt at the annual Kadooment Day street party? It is the love of her country that makes her return the love with this type of honor.
Although she is best known for being a singer, Rihanna has also grown to become an entrepreneur, fashion icon, and actress, achievements she said she always knew would come.
I didn’t know how it was going to happen. I know I was hidden away under this little rock, Barbados, and how would anybody find me? But I always knew it would happen,
she said in her speech.
‘I always focused on the result, and that kind of faith – it really was just that, childlike faith even now when I get a little bit discouraged or doubtful, it’s the thing that I go back to. Having faith in God.’
