Barbados Prime Minister reconsiders Rihanna as “Youth & Cultural Ambassador”

Don’t say we didn’t warn you about Rihanna, Mr. Prime Minister!

If David Thompson isn’t regretting his very-political decision to appoint Rihanna as our Youth and Cultural Ambassador, then there’s something wrong with David.

Rihanna doesn’t represent my culture and I sure as anything don’t want her representing or influencing my children.

We’re going to continue putting the Prime Minister’s head on Rihanna every time she doesn’t represent Barbados, like in the current issue of GQ. (HEY… Mister Prime Minister… nice tits!)

Meanwhile the lyrics to Rihanna’s latest little ditty “Hard” say she’s not exactly in love with folks like us either…

“I’ma rock this shit like fashion, as in
goin’ til they say stop
And my runway never looked so clear
But the hottest bitch in heels right here…

…Where dem bloggers at
Where dem bloggers at
Where they at, where they at, where they at?”

excerpts from “Hard” by Rihanna

Mr. Prime Minister: You made this mess. Watcha gonna do ’bout it?

* “Whereas the Government and the people of Barbados truly acknowledge and celebrate the remarkable achievements of Robyn Rihanna Fenty;

* “And whereas such an accomplishment has brought significant honour and deserving recognition not only to Rihanna but also to her beloved country and has elevated Barbados to the forefront of the entertainment world;

* “And whereas this phenomenal success has come at so tender an age evoking invaluable inspiration and motivation to youth everywhere;

* “And whereas all Barbados stands proud in the face of this honour and gives full support to Rihanna on her continuing path;

“Be it now proclaimed in Bridgetown, Barbados . . .that the Government of Barbados designates Robyn Rihanna Fenty an honorary Youth
 and Cultural Ambassador of this country.”
