On top of having a street in Barbados named after her, Rihanna is also an official ambassador of her native country. "Barbados is a place like no other and one of the reasons for this is the spirit and national pride of our people," she's previously said. "I want each and every visitor to this beautiful island to experience what makes this destination different from all others and that is the spirit and warmth of my fellow Barbadians."
