Barbados seems to be having the BEST MONTH EVER!

Barbados is #1.

Alison Hinds, Peter Ram, Rihanna, Deejay Puffy and all of the other Barbadian superstars now have a lot more to smile about when they rep their Bajan flag, this as the island has topped the Destination Satisfaction Index (DSI) for 2017. Barbados came in #1 out of 144 countries across the world, beating out Seychelles and Bermuda who came in second and third  respectively. The announcement was made and awards presented to a Barbados delegation during a ceremony at ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel trade show held in Germany this week.

So what’s the DSI? The DSI was developed and executed by two European research companies – Norstat and dp2research, and it’s a metric that measures the overall valuation of a holiday destination based on the factors travelers find most attractive. The survey, which took place last year featured some 70,000 travellers from around the world resulting in 1.4 million responses, covering over 20 categories including Beaches, Accommodation, Airlines, Security, Cuisine and Shopping; person between the ages 15-75 years old travelling for business and leisure. Barbados made an overall world score of 8.8/10 and also ranked highest in the Accommodation category, and highest in the Americas region ahead of Bermuda and the Bahamas.

Barbados must be incredibly proud. Their golden girl, ‘badgirlriri’ as she’s known on Instagram, has done it again. The singer who’s managed to stun the world in almost effortless fashion repeatedly over the years, launched her new lingerie line, Savage X by Fenty. It was extraordinary to say the least.

Rihanna is encouraging women to love the bodies they have.

Rihanna has been an advocate of embracing self. She disdain’s the promotion of perfection, having once said, “The biggest mistake you can make is to compare yourself with someone else. I hate the pressure that’s being put on us by social media. Young girls don’t know which way to go; they’re still figuring themselves out. And what we’re teaching them through social media is this idea that you have to be perfect. I just reject that at every cost.”

On Wednesday night, the artiste who is said to be working on a double album, lived up to her statements, ushering in a new fashion deliverable that stunned the world, making every woman feel beautiful in the fact that they could all wear Savage X by Fenty. The fashion event which was held at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York, saw a variety of models strut the runway. Rihanna acknowledged the fact that the bodies of no two woman are the same and realistically, no one mould can be used for every female. With this understanding, the woman behind Fenty Beauty challenged the fashion norm, placing the view of what’s sexy in the eye of the beholder.

Backstage at the event, Rihanna said the concept of the new line was about mixing the organic with the futuristic, “or what we hope to see in the future. Women being celebrated in all forms and all body types and all races and cultures.” She went on to say:

 “It’s a shame that women have to feel insecure or self-conscious about how their bodies look.”

Take a look at some of the Savage X lingerie options now available…

It’s a jungle out there and two of the wild cats creating a scene these days are none other than Hip Hop’s leading ladies, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj- both of whom have Trini blood running through their veins. The pair has been seemingly at it for a while but things escalated on the weekend when Cardi B attempted to run into Minaj’s security entourage at a New York Fashion Week event. Instead, she was on the receiving end of a bump to the face all courtesy Minaj’s bodyguards who just wasn’t having it. Of course, Cardi wouldn’t have been satisfied until she took off her shoe and threw it in the direction of the ‘Ganja Burns’ singer. Nicki was not hurt.

Amanda Seales is a Grenadian-American comedian.

Well, it certainly didn’t end there. The banter between these two equally successful rappers continues this week and many have been weighing in on the attempted face off. One of the comments that has however left us all chuckling here in the Caribbean is that of Grenadian-American comedian and actress Amanda Seales.

She, of course, gave her two cents on the topic, expressing a point of view that started with a disclaimer that she does not condone violence, before telling her online viewers that there’s really no right place for a fight to go down. Her final comment, however, gave the Trinidad and Tobago delights Roti and Doubles, some pretty good publicity. We’re cracking up over here!
