With eight Grammys, two Brit awards and nine UK number ones, a fashion business and a charitable foundation, Rihanna now has another facet to her glittering CV – Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary.

The pop superstar and entrepreneur was given the special role in her native Barbados, where she will promote education, tourism and investment for her home country.

Rihanna said she “couldn’t be more proud” to be given the prestigious title and was looking forward to help “re-imagine Barbados”.
