Rt. Hon Rihanna.
Well, this came from left field. Rihanna, as in the Rihanna, now must officially be addressed as The Right Honourable Robyn Rihanna Fenty, following a historic ceremony in her native Barbados in which Ri-Ri was declared the nation’s new ‘National Hero’. She joins an exclusive club, becoming just the 12th person and only the 2nd woman to receive the honour. However, this one was particularly special, as it was part of a ceremony in which Barbados declared itself a republic by swearing in its first president, Sandra Mason, and officially cutting ties with The Queen following nearly 400 years of British rule. I know that’s home team, but fair enough really, yeah? Presenting the award, Prime Minister Mia Motley said: “On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you, the designee, for national hero of Barbados, ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty. May you continue to shine like a diamond.” Pretty sure the line is actually, “shine bright like a diamond”, but I wouldn’t want to ruin their big day. I wonder who would become our national hero if the UK ever became a republic. People still like Noel Edmonds, right?Read Original Story
