One thing that I love about Rihanna is that she has never pulled the got rich and switched deal on us. From 2005 til 2017 she has perfectly kept that balance between mega superstar and island gyal from the left side of Barbados and we love her for it. Kadooment Day in Barbados has evolved in a sort of will she be there kind of moment with fans going crazy over the first sighting of her in her costume and this year’s celebrations were no different. Here are some of my favorite shots of badgalriri, her fans and pals.
