Rihanna named Barbados tourism ambassador

This according to an announcement by the Barbados Tourism Authority and news outlets including London's Daily Telegraph.

The popular and sultry singer, who grew up on the Caribbean island, has agreed to assume the post because she says she wants visitors to experience the "spirit and warmth" of Barbados residents.

"Barbados is a place like no other and one of the reasons for this is the spirit and national pride of our people," Rihanna said in a statement. "I want each and every visitor to this beautiful island to experience what makes this destination different from all others, and that is the spirit and warmth of my fellow Barbadians."

The Tourism Authority said it is a three-year deal and urged everyone to "celebrate this amazing announcement" by being in Bridgetown, Barbados, Aug. 5, where Rihanna is due to perform on her current tour.
