    Relations with Barbados

    Rihanna is heavily involved in the marketing of her hometown Barbados.She began by including the flag and trident in many of her videos, also shooting her album packaging for A Girl Like Me there.In September 2007, she became the official face of tourism for Barbados, being included in many of their ad campaigns. She is currently sitting as an Ambassador for Culture and Youth. She was then honored with a national holiday in her home country of Barbados called "Rihanna Day", on February 2008. Regardless, In February 2008, Rihanna thanked her country and honoured them during the acceptance speech for her win of "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration" at the Grammy Awards.

    Although, Rihanna is heavily involved in the promotion of her country and works with the guvernment in Barbados to do so, she is constantly criticized and ridiculed for everything from her music, her successes and for wearing "skimpy clothes". They also mentioned that Rihanna was too young for Def Jam to push her as a "sex symbol", making a plea that she cover up. The media and National Newspaper constantly make personal attacks and have shown lack of support and encouragement. Rihanna spoke out against the scrutiny to Entertainment Weekly stating, "They all hate me. I didn’t have to talk about them. I didn’t have to even mention that I’m from Barbados. But I do and people kind of take it for granted. They hate me. They talk s— about me all the time. But I’m like, ”Whatever. I’m still doing this cause I love to do it and you’re not going to stop me". Media fought back with letters to Rihanna publicly via there national newspaper, "[what she said] sounds as if though she is doing us a favour. If God didn't give us a Rihanna, he would have given us someone else. So don't ever for a second get to thinking you are irreplaceable, Rihanna" and "Her putting Barbados on the map is nonsense. Barbados was well on the map before she came along; and will be when she is gone". Her mentor and music producer Evan Rogers spoke out to the media stating that Rihanna subsequently "formed her impression of any Bajan dislike from the reception she received at the recent Barbados Music Awards where," according to Rogers, "It was disappointing the way some people reacted as if they were almost rooting against her".

    "So don't ever for a second get to thinking you are irreplaceable,"


    LMAO that one line made that whole thing fake.

    I heard about Barbados hating on her though.
    But on Feb. 21 when she went there
    after the grammy win and all those people were
    there rooting for her I assume that was swashed.

    Barbados is no different from any other place. We have our haters too. The problem with haters is their voice is twenty times as loud as any one else.

    Ours is a conservative society and we can be hypocritical with it.

    The truth is that the haters talk about her but the guys love her and the girls wear her hair styles some of the older people tend to forget what they were like when they were younger and get on like if they were always old and dead.

    I am twenty - three and me and most of my friends think she is the bomb the others just not that interested. My Boyfriend thought she was cool but he is really pissed about the whole CB thing but most of the guys are.

    My uncle plays her music in his car all the time he has a copy of her GGGB Vid in his car and plays it for every one who is stupid enough to drive in it with him.

    I think she is more liked than hated its just not something you talk about.

    Ri is Ri she is ours we don\'t brag about her but when she does good we are glad for her and when she does bad we are the first to be disappointed but she is still bajan and one of us.

    Also I have discovered that a lot of people here who say they hate her are telling lies they secretly love her but feel they would look dumb saying so, after I start staning they admit that they like her too.

    I don\'t know if this help or not.

    I love Ri skippy clothes I love daring it is the thing I missed the most she tended to tone it down when she was with CB and even now she still plays it safer than I would like but these are still delicate times maybe she will go back to the short short skirts

    That "Irreplaceable" line was probably added but I remember reading the interview of her saying this about them always having a problem with something she's doing.
