Rihanna attended the opening of Rihanna Drive in Barbados (Photos)



“Welcome to Rihanna Drive… My home. My whole life was shaped on this very road.”

Rihanna was in Barbados on Thursday, November 30, as she was honored with her own street. The news that Rih would have a street named after her in the town of St. Michael was first announced in October. The official unveiling of Rihanna Drive coincided with Barbados’s Independence Day.

A plaque featuring a message from Rihanna appears on the road, formerly known as Westbury New Road. The plaque includes her statement that “My whole life was shaped on this very road.”

Rihanna wore a bright yellow dress for the occasion, a look only dampened by the torrential rain that hit St. Michael on the day. At one point in the proceedings she gave a speech in which she noted the importance of following your dreams: “I guarantee you the only thing that got me here was believing in my dream.”

Check out some HQ pictures from the event below.
