Pop superstar Rihanna has been named "Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary" by the Barbados government.

The government conferred the title on Rihanna with specific responsibility for promoting education, tourism and investment for the island.

"Rihanna has a deep love for this country and this is reflected in her philanthropy, especially in the areas of health and education. She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to this country and continues to treasure the island as her home," Prime Minister Mia Mottley said.

"She has also demonstrated, beyond her success as a pop icon, significant creative acumen and shrewdness in business. It is therefore fitting that we engage and empower her to play a more definitive role as we work to transform Barbados," Mottley stated.

Mottley also noted that Rihanna's charitable contributions, both locally and internationally, have been significant.

"I couldn't be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I'm ready and excited to take on the responsibility. I look forward to working with Prime Minister Mottley and her team to reimagine Barbados," Rihanna stated.
