Pevačica dobila ulicu sa svojim imenom
I vrapci na grani znaju da je r’n’b zvezda Rihanna rođena na ostrvu Barbados u mestu Westbury. Sada su njeni sunarodnici odlučili da joj se zahvale za silnu besplatnu reklamu koju im je donela, te https://www.instagram.com/p/BcIgWhLDDYy/?taken-by=badgalriri
Premenovanju se RiRi zahvalila na instagramu, a održala je i govor u kojem je naglasila koliko je ponosna na svoje poreklo i zahvalila građanima na podršci.
a day my people and I will never forget! all the lessons, running around barefoot, nosey neighbors, braiding hair on the step, playing in the cemetery, walking to the beach, rum shop karaoke keeping the whole street awake til 4am ("only the lonely" by Roy Orbison is playing in my head as I type this) , stealing Sammy pomegranates from his tree, begging my mother to let me walk to Jan's shop cause she had American snacks, selling plastic/glass bottles to Peter so I could buy those American snacks, getting my hair hot combed for Harvest at church, doing my homework on my front step while Miss Hyacinth yells "ya gon get belly hurt from dat cold step" across from her veranda, watching iFE walk past with her dreads dragging on the floor like a couture gown, all the times I thought Melissa came to hang out with me, turns out she was dating my next door neighbor all along, rushing to do dishes when my mother's high heels start hitting the pavement as she gets off the bus from work……right here on this street! WESTBURY is more than a community, we're family!!! Thank you for all that you've poured into my life and the woman I am! It takes a village, and I'm glad my village was you!!!! To God be the Glory!!!! #RiRiDrive
Lepotica sa Barbadosa nikad nije zaboravila rodni kraj. Kako se priča, tamo ima posed vredan nekoliko miliona dolara, a krajem prošle godine u rodnom gradu je ugostila princa Harryja.
