Rihanna Museum In The Works In Barbados

Published: Monday 17th Jun 2019 by Sam

Rihanna has made quite the impact on the world at large, but as the age old adage goes “there’s no place like home.”

A proud product of Barbados, the star has consistently touted her country as her personal base and has stressed that she’ll always be an island girl.

Now, as she continues work on a Caribbean kissed album, it’s been revealed that plans are underway for a museum to be built in her honor back home in her Bajan native.

Details below…

The reveal came courtesy of the country’s first female Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, who shared the news during a recent speech in London.

Per Mottley, the space would be a permanent, interactive cultural tribute to the RiRi.

Speaking on the 31-year-old’s impact (which includes being an official ambassador for Barbados), she said:

“Anybody who could start going to school on a ZR [route taxi] from Westbury to Waterford and could now be the most successful woman entertainer in the entire globe in my view deserves to be recognised in her life as a living legend of Barbados as well.”

She continued…

“She didn’t say ‘I want to build a business’ or ‘when I build a successful business’, she said ‘when I build my empire’ – and I’ve never forgotten that – and she has built an empire and is still building it.”

On The museum specifically, Mottley added:

“We’ve been discussing with her [Rihanna] family – her brother in particular and her management – the need for them to establish a major museum with the government in Westbury Road so that people who leave the cruise terminal or who are at Kensington visiting for cricket have another iconic thing besides the Legends of Barbados Museum there at Herbert House.” [Source]

The news comes on the heels of the launch of Fenty – Rihanna’s luxury fashion house with LVMH, which is the first original label the latter has established since 1987.

    Always inspiring. I’m just so happy I got to witness her bloom. I’ve literally grew up with her. I’ll never change my Avi. Been rocking from day 1!

    i remember coming on this site years ago reading the negative comments about her and discrediting her accomplishments saying her 15 min were up and how a certain artist is better and makes bigger moves. looks like she been creating her blueprint the whole time. the crazy part is cardi is the new rihanna. lets she if she does the same.

      Why bring Cardi into this? Rihanna is a natural beauty. She is naturally a model and someone people can relate to. Cardi has the natural talent to be likeable but that is where it ends. Cardi is not a natural beauty and is missing a lot of her teeth. Cardi make a lot of bad decisions when it comes to plastic surgery as well. What happens when a new Lauren Hill comes on the scene (someone with natural beauty, real singing ability, and real rapping ability)? The answer will be Cardi who? Cardi is popular now because she has NO competition. When Rihanna came out she had REAL competition (Bey, Tierra Marie, Ciara, Britney, Christina, Shakira, etc) so the fact Rihanna is still doing legendary things means she was able to compete and succeed. It’s a shame we don’t have more female rappers in the game with real talent like when Kim was in her prime. Kim had a LOT of competition (Eve, Missy, Lauren Hill, Rah Digga, Salt n Pepa, etc) all of which had real rapping talent.

        you just did exactly what my post was about which is why i brought up cardi. these are pretty much the things that were said about rihanna. i dont think that ppl actually understand that talent doesnt equate to success. if ur not making music that the public will consume it really doesn’t matter how much talent u possess. how she don’t have no competition when she collab with city girls megan just dropped and nicki. cardi got hits thats why she popular. u dont have to like her yourself but ppl are listening to cardi. yall can holla payola but ppl stream her willingly on a daily basis. like myself. she talk that talk i like and its not pop infused rap.

        Cardi is NO comparison to Rihanna. Rihanna did not get a bunch of PLASTIC SURGERY to look beautiful. She is naturally beautiful! Cardi is not naturally beautiful and still after all that PLASTIC SURGERY she is still missing a LOT of teeth and her body looks a mess! You brought Cardi into this. Not me. When Rihanna came out she had plenty of REAL established competition (Bey, Tierra Marie, Ciara, Britney, Christina, Shakira, etc). You cannot possibly think the City Girls are REAL competition or on the same level as (Bey, Tierra Marie, Ciara, Britney, Christina, Shakira, etc). You are just looking for excuses to bring up Cardi on a non-related and non-applicable post about Rihanna! When Rihanna came out she was a singles artist! With hit microwave singles back to back NOBODY ever said her ’15 minutes’ were up. You just made that up to talk about Cardi. Rihanna has NEVER flopped and her catalogue speaks for itself! Hell, if Rihanna started flopping she would have been dropped just like Tearra from her label but she was a success at selling singles and as her career grew she good at selling both singles and albums!

        TROLLmine Rihanna got her nose done though. Google Rihanna nose job and you can clearly see. Rihanna is pretty but natural beauty is a stretch. Without the makeup and weaves Rihanna is a moderately attractive girl with an extremely large forehead.

    RIRi, as her Prime Minister called her , is talented but in a unique way –always factoring her origin /roots-Barbados into all she does and stands for . She’s still young, energetic and innovative. The world is yet to hear and see her yet -to -be -tapped talent to the glory of herself, and country, Barbados.
