Barbados names a street after Rihanna

- “Shut Up And Drive” down Rihanna Drive!

The Barbados Government announced that the street Rihanna grew up on will be named in her honor. Westbury New Road is now the new and improved Rihanna Drive!

Rihanna attended the street naming ceremony last week in a beautiful yellow dress and gave a touching speech on what her home means to her.

“Welcome to Rihanna Drive… My home. My whole life was shaped on this very road. I was just a little island girl riding bikes, running around barefoot and flying kites in the cemetery, but I had BIG dreams. Dreams that were born and realized right here… Thank you to my family, my country and the people of Westbury New Road! You will forever be a part of who I am, and for that I am honored to have this place named after me.”

Time to move to Rihanna Drive, ASAP.
