This is so cool, Rihanna is now an ambassador, not a brand ambassador, but an actual diplomat!
Buzzfeed News reports, “Rihanna was appointed as an ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary by Barbados Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley.
She had previously held the title of cultural ambassador for the island nation, but according to the statement, “this expanded role takes into consideration her multidimensional achievements and global influence across a much broader range of areas.”
The US State Department describes an ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary as a personal representative of the head of state. It is the highest title awarded to a diplomat.”
