Barbados is Tired of Rihanna

The editorial section of a Barbados newspaper put Rihanna on blast today:

I AM TIRED of opening my newspaper to find Rihanna headlines; Rihanna this and Rihanna that. Give it a rest!

People talking about 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. I read a comment written in the DAILY NATION, November 20, about giving her a big welcome each time she comes home. I do not believe she gives her schedules to anyone here, anyway. She comes and goes when she pleases.

All her achievements are hers and I have not seen her do anything spectacular. Where was her donation back in September for the Brittons Hill tragedy? I have nothing against the young woman. More power to her.

But when sensible Barbadians write what to my mind is rubbish in the paper, I feel the need to comment

    Obviously that was not written by someone from Barbados. Surely a true Bajan would not refer to people from their own country as ‘Barbadians’.

    Damn Rhi rhi

    LOL, interesting article…but true. When I was there in late Sept. I noticed she gets a lot of coverage in the papers. Yeah, it would have been a great humanitarian (and PR) move for her to do something after the Britons Hill tragedy (send condolences, flowers, donation, something). For those of you who don’t know what happened. An house built on a cave or something collapsed and killed an entire family, including small children.

    Rhianna is Bajan, however, in her quest to reach the top, if she appears as though she’s not interested in really “giving back” to her island now that she’s made it big…it can bite her in the ass as well.

    And it doesn’t have to be monetary, maybe an appearance here or there, adopt and support a cause, visit sick kids in QEH, etc…but hey, that’s just the PR professional in me talking. :-)

    Barbadians is the correct word for it, so why wouldn’t they use that word?

    BTW, whose big ashy, bunioned up, corny toes are so prominent in the pic?

  • lisa

    I think Tia does not realize that there is a difference between the word “Barbadians” and “barbarians”.

    Catch a clue Tia!



  • Still laughing at holiday hams

    Is it me or are Rihanna and Jay-z really sharing scarves?

  • BossLady


    Nooooooo. They are Bajans. ‘Baradians’ is just as correct as the term ‘look it’ or ‘skreet’.

  • BossLady

    And why do we feel as though she must ‘give back’ to Barbados? How many units did she move over there? Who from Barbados even listened to her demo? And who says she doesn’t help? Just because she didn’t give to the Hill tragedy doesn’t mean she doesn’t give back. She just may not have given to that cause. How many African American artists helped Katrina victims. Not just writing a check to a (fraudulent) charity with your name big ass hell so all the world can see. No. I mean rolling up them sleeves and breaking a sweat. Maybe oversee the actual construction of a home? There were a few, but…………………

    Like Kat Williams would say…………

    …………………..I’LL WAIT………….

    To those that don’t understand Bajan is slang for Barbadian meaning a citizen/national of Barbados. Its like someone calling you a Yankee. Yankee isn’t wrong but the official non-slang term would be American.

    I mean when there are pics of her walking her dog, eating, cheezing with her dancers and shopping I would get fed up seeing her always splashed across the nations newspaper for trivial stuff too. At least keep it to half a page in the entertainment section. But, thats not Rih’s fault thats the newspaper editor’s fault.

  • BossLady

    @ whodat and anyone else-

    I stand corrected. Bajan and Barbadian are BOTH correct and acceptable. The more common and accepted is term, however, is Bajan. Much love all.


    HAHAHA HILARIOUS!…yet it seems logical!

  • John

    People can say what they want, I’m a grown ass man, I like the girl and her pretty legs. Step on Rih!!
