The prime minister of Barbados hopes to mark the musician’s legacy with a special exhibition
It has been three long years since Rihanna last released an album but, in that time, she has become even harder to avoid. Which is saying something when you consider that, between 2005 and 2012, she released an album a year and alternated her own singles with David Guetta features on a fortnightly basis. Whether she is starring in films (Ocean’s 8), launching fashion brands (Fenty Beauty and Fenty) or swerving unwanted male attention (Drake), Rihanna is now so culturally important that there should be a museum dedicated to her.
If the prime minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, gets her way there will be. During a recent trip to London, Mottley suggested talks were under way with Rihanna’s people for a permanent tribute to the Shut Up and Drive hitmaker.
