Rihanna is the drunken stripper queen of Barbados for Kadooment Day


You have to give Rihanna credit for something: she knows how to have a good time. Yesterday, Rihanna was in Barbados for their national holiday, Kadooment Day. I’m not even going to try to explain what the original holiday is celebrating, suffice to say that the holiday has devolved into a day in which ladies wear red bikinis and fishnets and get drunk as hell on the streets. It’s sort of like… college? Anyone else have a liberal arts education?

Anyway, Rihanna took part in a “traditional Bajan festival” by wearing this outfit and getting on top of float and simulated sexual acts with randoms… while atop the float. I’m not judging – first of all, all of this looks very much like a Gay Pride parade, so much so that I find myself playing “Find the Drag Queen” in the photos (I think I found one). Also, in no photo does Rihanna look uncomfortable or even out of control. She looks like she maintained a really great buzz throughout the day, for which I applaud her.

Rihanna was also recently named the official ambassador for Barbados to… the world? Probably. So, whenever we think of Barbados, we should think about Rihanna maintaining a killer happy-buzz as she straddles randoms on a parade float. Seriously, there are totally worse ambassadors.

    Oh, look. It’s Rihanna’s ass. AGAIN.

  2. silken_floss says:

    She looks great! I ain’t even mad :)

  3. Katie says:

    The second and fourth pictures at the bottom amused me the most. All I can say about #2 is: …surprise butt-sex?

    But seriously, that’s what it looks like.

    And in #4, that guy is FIXED on her boobs.

  4. jinni says:

    She has great skin: even tone and a lovely shade/color.

  5. searching4grace says:

    I love that she’s so truly comfortable in her body! I can’t see her ribs! Yay! I’d like to say from some of the pics I’ve seen from the festival, there are some truly beautiful women in Barbados.

  6. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Thats her home thats where she is from. If Rhianna was Brazilian and was celebrating Carnival dressed almost in the same fashion, no one would call her stripper.

  7. Honey says:

    It’s like Carnival is Rio or Trinidad! It’s to celebrate when all the sugar cane has been cut, basically everybody hits the streets in band costumes, dances, drinks, and celebrates another successful sugar crop.

    And that ‘simulated sex’ is just how we dance in the West Indies. It may look grotty, but it’s loads of fun. But there are no floats, that’s just a music truck full of speakers.

  8. Remi says:

    Unfortunately this is what the “celebration” has become. Please don’t solely judge Crop Over based on pictures like this; there is a LOT more to it than that.

  9. Miss Marie says:

    Sadly, this talented young lady, like many before her, has painted herself into a corner and she’ll not be taken seriously in other genres which is career suicide. It may not matter to her in her twenties, or thirties, but sooner or later, she’ll want to be known for something other then “always talent plus the shock factor.” Poor management is likely the reason she isn’t focused.

  10. Bedge says:

    She looks nicely rounded. No bones or grizzle.

  11. Hanna says:

    What’s up with her skin color? :S

  12. gee says:

    I don’t care that she’s drunk or whatever, but she looks like hell. Bad hair color, no makeup?, and unflattering bikini. She has a hell of a body, but she just looks like any drunken 23 year old… a hot mess. I would know, I am often drunk and currently 23, although way less hot.

  13. ladybert62 says:

    Hey I worked hard and long for my liberal arts degree and am proud of it! ha ha

    That is an ugly costume and it makes her look fat in the legs, stomach and butt.

    Yes she looks like she is having fun in the favorite Rhianna way – where is her stripper dance pole? ha ha

  14. Iggles says:

    Thats her home thats where she is from. If Rhianna was Brazilian and was celebrating Carnival dressed almost in the same fashion, no one would call her stripper.

    Thank you! I find the lack of cultural understanding here grating.

    Mardi Gras can be described as “one big drunken party” but since most of us are familiar with it, no one is called a “stripper” for dressing scantily clad and flashing their boobs for beads!

  15. GimmeABreak says:

    The photos on DListed are much trashy. She’s dry humping everyone and everyone is dry humping her. The pics look like everyone is sticky, sweaty and stinky.

  16. Cherry says:

    Actually, I would call anyone parading the streets dressed in a bejeweled bikini a stripper, whether it’s on Barbados, in Brazil or in my backyard. Not that there’s anything wrong in being a stripper, but let’s not kid ourselves, ok? Rihanna is dressed like this because everyone else is, and it’s a party, and good for her, but ALSO, because she knowns that strudding around in a bikini will gain her a lot of publicity. Ask any fellow tartlet.

  17. Bill Hicks is God says:

    @GimmeABreak: “The pics look like everyone is sticky, sweaty and stinky.”

    That’s the point. Means it was a ‘bad fete’ ;-)

  18. Goofpuff says:

    How come only the women are dressed so skimpy? Blah.

  19. CarinC4 says:

    To tell u the thruth, some of these pics of her are tamed in relation to other Carnival moments in other country, example my country- Trinidad.
    Altho I dislike her and rarely defend her, bcuz I know the culture and i’m apart of it, u really can’t call her a stripper. Uh y’all do realise that every1 else is wearing costumes also right? And its not just that one red ‘bikini’ thing, its other colours &styles depending what band they in.

    But yeah, her costume real ugly tho. Come to Trinidad and see that we have far better style than that.

  20. Original Tiffany says:

    Dlisted pics were gross. I need brain bleach after seeing Riri simulate 69 with a chick and ride several random dude’s crotches. We even get to see nipple there. All done with a beer in hand. Looks like my senior trip to mexico, only I think we wore more clothes…maybe not.

  21. samab says:

    bad costume bad make up bad hair and sorry I really don’t think she’s hot.And yes she looks dirty and not in a good way(if there is a good way to look dirty,like dirty sexy…hummm not the case).Anyway it’s nice that she’s partying like one of the crowd.

  22. ElleGin says:

    To me it just looks like a lot of fun. What party is ever fun without some sexy moves that are totally inappropriate otherwise.

  23. JustBe says:

    These pics seem rather tame to me.

    I live in DC and once a year there is a public celebration through a main thoroughfare called Carnival that celebrates the history/culture of various Caribbean countries.

    The female participants dress similar to this, but some costumes are more elaborate like you would expect in the Brazilian Carnival. Other participants spread what appears to be mud (or makeup simulated to look like mud) all over themselves as well.

    Also, if you frequent any reggae-based club in the city, the dancing is heavily based on simulated sex. I use to frequent the clubs a lot when I was young and having fun.

    So, for me, this is a non-story. The bigger Rihanna story that I heard on my commute today was about how she hates to be considered as a role model and wants to be free enough to drink, party and be as slutty as she damn well pleases! I heard it on the radio, so I can’t provide a link.

    If she truly feels this way, that is way more interesting than her participating in a Carnival-like event.

  24. Ben says:

    She’s ridiculously beautiful. I’d so go straight for Princess RiRi.

  25. bajansweetie says:

    She’s wearing what everyone else wears to crop over. Get the f-over it.

  26. UKHels says:

    not Rihanna’s biggest fan but I’ve been to cropover and there’s chicks wearing a whole lot less than that!! Surely all carnivals are like that?

  27. Erin says:

    Would I personally behave like that when partying – probably not. But I agree with most of the posters saying she has an awesome body. Good for you girl – show it off!

  28. california angel says:

    …and here I am sitting in front of a computer and phone… *sigh* That looks like fun!

  29. Sue says:

    As a Basin myself I’m disappointed that they named her ambassador really they could not find anyone else? She has no talent what so ever, she just a product of Jay Z.

  30. Venefica Delirium says:

    She’s got a great body, but from the neck up she looks like hell. I don’t like the hair and makeup at all.

  31. fwozbo says:

    All the guys are so gross, just staring at her boobs in all he pictures. Can’t men be discreet (not discrete) anymore?

  32. DethHammer says:

    Rihanna has a great bod, and it looks like she’s having fun! One of these days I’m going to a Carnival/ crop over, and coming up with a great costume!

    I actually have some more respect for her that she doesn’t want to be seen as a role model because she doesn’t want kids emulating her over-sexed and over-sauced behavior.

  33. Vera says:

    She looks like she’s stopped working out. I remember her going on and on in an interview about her workout regime, how she worked so hard for her body, but this does not look like that body. I’m not saying she should be rail thin – I don’t follow Rhianna close enough to know if there was an eating disorder concern at some point – but she looks like some of my fellow college students who came from high school doing regular workouts or sports, then realised how easy it is to get alcohol and stopped working out and just let them selves go.

    Don’t think she looks like a stripper or anything – it is a celebration thing so I won’t really judge. During Mardi Gras, everyone looks like this. If this was a carpet walk, then yeah, I would be judging like none other. But I accept this.

    She looks genuinely happy in a few pictures – and also genuinely drunk. Still don’t have too much respect for her (not for this – I just don’t really like her), but oh well.

  34. Jax says:

    More famous for getting her t*ts and ass out now than for her music. Looks a right slapper. Put some clothes on for frick’s sake!!!
