It certainly has been a great year for Rihanna!

The international superstar and ultimate rocker of yeti boots, joins the exclusive and elusive club of celebrities that have a street named after them. On Barbados Independence Day, the government of Barbados has renamed the street she grew up on to Rihanna Drive.

Rihanna has become a cultural ambassador for her home country Barbados. She made headlines there over the summer with her Crop Over Festival appearance, and last Independence Day, she and Prince Harry spread awareness on behalf of the National HIV/AIDS Commission. Despite pouring rain, this year she returned to Barbados for the opening ceremony of her street.

Congratulations Rihanna!
