Barbados wants to open a museum dedicated to Rihanna


A museum dedicated to Rihanna could soon be opening in Barbados.

During a recent event at Kensington Town Hall, London, Mia Amor Mottley told the crowd that talks were in the works of opening a permanent, interactive cultural tribute to the singer.

Rihanna grew up on the Caribbean island and moved to the States when she was 16 to pursue a career in music.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the 31-year-old is the richest female musician in the world.

Though she’s taken over the world, Rihanna has always stayed true to her Barbadian roots.

She frequently returns to her home country and contributes to local charities and educational initiatives, not to mention performing at Barbados’ annual carnival, Crop Over.

Her efforts were recognized when she was appointed as a Barbados ambassador last year, with a specific focus on the promotion of education, tourism and investment.
