TMZ: “Rihanna turning her Instagram account into a porn feed” – Barbados Tourism Authority awaits the new holiday arrivals!

“Another pillar of the strategy was the creation of a global brand for Barbados, using modern technology. Getting Rihanna to endorse this brand, via the visitbarbados.org website saw an increase from 2,000 to 68,000 hits per week. This association with Rihanna is also expected to take the Barbados brand into 19 million homes via social media like Facebook and Instagram.

    NEWS!! a semi-naked backside is not porn. If you think so, then you have never seen porn. Bad taste? Yes. Porn? Definitely not.

  4. She's Not my daughter

    A naked backside is not porn. Maybe. It depends on how it is presented and what else can be seen.

    This might not be porn, but neither is it what can be called a Barbados Tourism Authority commercial. Or maybe it is, but what kind of tourists will it bring? How old is the average Rihanna Twitter and Instagram follower? What are the demographics of the Rihanna Instagram audience.

    I’m sure that the BTA can tell us! (laugh laugh laugh)

    Will it get us more tourists if she spreads her cheeks wide open and says ‘KISS MY ASS!” ??? I understand that is standard behaviour in the courts now! 🙂

  5. just want to know

    Well it is only joining some of her noteable M P’s in the porn industry. Barbados will soon be the place for the porn industry (LOL).

  7. Not Taken

    As I was Not Taken in by Harlequin’s opportunity to invest in The Merricks, I still have some cash to invest in a “can’t lose” business opportunity.

    Just wondering if you and Willie are looking for investors for you new bidness.

    If so, can we discuss at da rum shop by da coast road.

  8. Well Well

    Now at Rihanna’s concerts she can be seen cracking open her crotch with hand on vagina in suggestive moves, people are starting to get disgusted with her untalented antics, some are saying it appears that’s the only thing she knows to do, showing herself as low class trash……………hope it brings millions of people to Barbados.

    @Well well: You know the old saying “You can take a pig out of a sty but you cannot take the sty out of the pig”
    Too true in so many instances .

    You guys are missing the boat here. The trick being played on us all here is to divert our collective attention to useless arguments which bear no direct or indirect focus on the real problem. That problem is the wastage of our collective monies on a dead tourism product. I’m tired saying it again and again. Tourism is Dead! We get paltry returns on our investment year after year. Its time to change how we do things around Barbados. Start by saving the country money if we cant immediately find a way to make the country money. We don’t need an Economist or Actuary to tell us that. It’s simple. A dollar saved is as good as a dollar earned.
    Rhianna is not our best spokes-person for Tourism. And that is because she doesn’t understand the nuances of marketing the piss poor product that we are trying to sell. In all honesty, its not her fault either. Someone is paid to market her. We hoped, rather stupidly, that we could piggy-back on her success without being able to clearly identify what we wanted to project to the world. People will come here to visit and for extended periods whether she is ours or not! What won’t happen, if that the people whom she attracts most, that specific demographic at whom she’s targeted, become interested in our tourism product. They probably don’t travel anyway. Many of them probably done even own a passport for crying out loud! So that brilliant idea undoubtably dreamt up by an overpaid, underachieving tourism executive of hanging onto her coat-tails to be dragged to success, had failed unrecoverably!
    Finally. let me quickly deal with the chicken-head reporter from that TMZ clip who accused Rhianna about turning her Instragram account into a porn feed.
    You blasted Americans are too self-righteous! You guys love porn, live on it in your private spaces, adore it, and make suttle references to it daily. When Rhianna is on stage in some small, revealing outfit, that’s acceptable because what? Is it was because some other imbecile like yourself said it was “OK” to go onstage like that? Go get a life poop-bert! And while you are at it, probably a wife! You may be another one of those undercover women haters.

  11. @ Well well
    you must understand that sex sells in America. It is part and parcel of the entertainment industry in the States. And just because Rihanna is clad in the uniform of a whore most of the time that does not makes her a whore. We can question whether Rihanna has a moral responsibility to the millions of young people that are influenced by her music.

  12. Well Well

    The Watcher……..you are correct, it is to distract from the incompetence and lazy to use their brains tourism official who refuse to acknowledge that tourism is DEAD until there is an economic turnaround WORLDWIDE or until they learn how to actually market the island positively.
    Obzocky………….Rihanna only moral obligation is to portray herself as having moral and respect for herself, not to the people who are dumb enough to follow her to her concerts and waste their precious money watching her do the same ridiculous thing over and over. Personally, I believe she can send the same message without dressing like a whore if what she does was based on talent only……………I recently saw Alicia Keyes concert, full house, well dressed no whore antics, pure talent while acting like a lady.

  13. Well Well

    The Watcher……………….Rihanna continually gives TMZ and Mediatakeout fuel to add to the fire by consistently flooding them with naked pics taken of herself, just to get the negative attention……………NYDaily News got a steady diet of Rihanna naked pics, until the readers started to complain………….not by job to psychoanalyze her, but someone of pure talent only, would never need to stoop to those levels……………I can name a few, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Patti La Belle, Alicia Keyes, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, and the list goes on, no one is forcing Rihanna to do those things.

  14. TheWatcher

    @ Well Well
    I accept without argument what you are saying regarding our Bajan SuperStar and how she provides fodder to those who just wait in the wings to spread embellished stories about her. The talent argument is well taken too. But she is an “entertainer” which is apparently a broader based category than a singer or songwriter which is where I can see the talent being utilised. Entertainers seem to be “made” or “created” and done seem to occur very naturally. Case in point, Brittany Spears!
    All I am saying is that this young lady, as much as we view her as being responsible for her actions, the Rhianna character as the entity we are having projected to us, is probably not as much as 10% in control of her own life as we would like to assume.
    Money makes people do weird things, and when we try to layer morals and other constructs on top of that, many people will get caught up in the “money” and throw all the other stuff out the door.
    I fear all this rash behaviour is all about keeping the fan-base interested and entertained, else, there’s no use for her because she isn’t an artist, but an entertainer.

  15. Well Well

    The Watcher………….point taken.

  16. Rastaman

    And when all the popularity is lost the Illuminati will take care of that..

  17. Well well
    Why shouldn’t Rihanna be able live her life the way she sees fit? And why does she have to live up to the prescribed standards some people in Bim dictates? Do you remember Charles Barkley’s famous quote, “I’m not a role-model…just because I dunk a basketball ;doesn’t mean I should raise your children? “

  18. Rihanna, is not a role-model just because she can shout out her senseless lyrics. And exposed her backside every time the opportunity presents itself; she probably didn’t even ask for the title that have been offered to her.

  19. Bob

    Please do not worry about anything. The Ministry of Tourism just announced that they will be pumping 11 million into a package to encourage more spending by tourists which will guarantee three times the investment. Don’t worry bout a ting, everytings gonna be alright.

    “Luxury long-haul specialists Hayes and Jarvis have published a list of the five best overseas venues for tying the nuptial knot, and St Lucia and Antigua have bagged fourth and fifth place, respectively.”
    ——————————————————————————————-
    A few year ago, Barbados would have easily made that list. Maybe it’s time for Barbados to start pairing herself with other Caribbean islands; for example, a stay in Barbados with a one-day visit to a nearby exotic island would help Barbados tourism tremendously.

  21. Well Well

    Obzocky…….Rihanna definitely did not want the title or responsibility but the deceased PM was star struck and the rest is history…………………she can live her life, I just don’t see what young people are following or paying money to see.

  22. Bajan Abroad

    Oh my goodness Rhianna is from Barbados? That’s it I am going! Does anyone see the flawed logic in this? Time for another strategy.
