Rihanna Day in Barbados

by Summer

Did you know that February 22nd is Rihanna Day in Barbados?!

Rihanna day was launched by Barbados Prime Minister David Thompson at an awards ceremony back in 2008. We thought it might be nice to put together a few images of OUR local celeb girl, to celebrate her.
