Seventeen Magazine picks up Barbados Free Press Rihanna articles

Seventeen to quote BFP about controversy over Rihanna’s role as Barbados Culture & Youth Ambassador.

Today we find that the editors at have not only linked to our latest Rihanna story, they’ve asked to use content from a number of BFP’s articles for a new major Seventeen Magazine article about the growing controversy over Rihanna’s role as Barbados Culture & Youth Ambassador. (Of course we gave them our permission!)

The internet is an amazing place – especially when a major organisation decides to link to a story on a small blog like Barbados Free Press. We’ve had the hit-meter go wild on a number of occasions when big places like CNN, Fox News, Associated Press, USA Today or the BBC linked to one of our stories. BFP has even been linked to by newspapers as far afield as India Times.

I think our best day ever was last year when we received over 44,000 visitors in a 24 hour period due to a BBC link. The best part of having such a large number of “one shot” visitors is that many stay and look around BFP.

Can’t wait to read the new article at Seventeen Magazine.

    BFP meant on destroying Rihanna…..nothing but obvious pure unadulterated jealousy…..i hope Seventeen magazine picks that up…..

    What Rihanna has done for Barbados, BFP can’t even come close in this life or the next

  4. @bajeabroad – So whatever Rihanna does is right, no matter what? get real…

  5. LMFAO@bajeabroad … What has Rihanna done for Barbados?

    PS. Please give me an answer other than she put Barbados on the map … or the millions of dollars in foreign exchange she bring to Barbados … Please!

    (Oh God, I’m still laughing)

  6. Oh dear! I was laughing so hard I forgot to type ‘she’ between ‘exchange’ and ‘bring’

    O lawrd! O lawrd!

    Imagine a washed up local news anchor trying to cast negative vibes on our first truly international known star whose impact on the music industry has made it possible for other artists like Shontelle and Jaicko to be readily accepted and promoted by their music labels……thanks Rihanna for opening the international door for other bajan talent!

    Dont mind bad minded, jealous, unknown BFP…they can’t even come close to the international impact you have made….jealousy pure and simple!

  8. Washed up anchor? Of course, I bathe every day – don’t you?

    Oh yes, I am soooooooo jealous of a singer who earns fame by having a midget dominatrix waltz all over her and is at a concert exposing her nook-nook and is proud to admit she took pics of herself in the nude – THAT is the way to promote Barbados!

    Let’s give a BIG round of applause…

    ** cue in sound of silence ’til tree frogs start chirping **

    @ Ian Bourne

    Don’t know why we can’t disagree about something without getting personal…..Stupse

    All I could think of was “Coup de grâce!” and that bajeabroad is now lying dead on the floor. Oh Lordy……

    ** cue in applause and a whoop whoop **

    I am alive and well my friend, just thrilled to see my fellow bajan Rihanna blaze a trail and do well for herself……stop the hate and jealousy haters!!
