RIHANNA BELONGS to the world and it is time for Bajans to let her go.
This was the assertion of some of the biggest names in local entertainment as they joined the heated week-long debate on whether the internationally recognised Barbadian singer offended her country with the revealing dress she wore to last week’s Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards in New York.
From veteran promoter Al Gilkes to multi-award winning singer and songwriter Anthony Gabby Carter told Barbadians that it was time to accept that Rihanna’s stage had moved way beyond the boundaries of the Caribbean island.
“We are still seeing Rihanna as a Bajan but she’s no longer a Bajan, she belongs to the entire world,” Gilkes, FAS Entertainment director and marketing publicist,  told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
