Superstar Rihanna is at home in Barbados for the annual Crop Over Festival 2012. Wherever she goes the award-winning singer has been creating a buzz that has attracted the attention of Totally Barbados.

The young songstress has been seen at many of the fetes and parties held across the island during the festival season. Among the events attended by the Barbadian-bred pop icon was the hugely popular Brewster’s Road Fete at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.

Patrons were in for a special treat as Rihanna was introduced by local entertainer Lil Rick during his performance on stage. Although she did not sing a note, just having the home girl who has made it big on the international stage in the house was enough to send her fans wild.

Rihanna waved to the crowd acknowledging the warm reception and then spent the night partying in the VIP section. It was an all-nighter for the 23-year-old celebrity, who was spotted driving away in a hired car just after 8 in the morning.

Crop Over is billed this year as the ‘Sweetest Summer Festival” and returning home for the season of events is nothing new for Rihanna. She was back last year for the festival’s climax Kadooment, a colorful spectacle where thousands of costumed revelers dance in the streets.

The route they take is several kilometers and winds its way from the country’s national stadium at Waterford, St. Michael to Spring Garden Highway, just on the outskirts of Bridgetown. There revelers they find plenty to eat and drink from a line of vendors offering everything from burgers to barbeque pig tails and sodas to island’s famous Barbados rum.

Last year Rihanna jumped with the band Baje International and the organizers have admitted that her presence gave the band unprecedented international media coverage. So much so, that this year the heavy demand for their costumes meant they were fully booked much earlier than usual. There is no word as yet though if Rihanna will be among them again this time around.

Yet as much as Rihanna is known for partying, that may not be the only reason why she is in Barbados at this time. The singing sensation will be featured by none other than talk show queen Oprah Winfrey on her show Next Chapter, scheduled for August 19. The interview is being done in Barbados and Rihanna has already been seen driving Oprah around the island.

During the interview Rihanna is expected to open up about her humble beginnings and the series of events that took her from being an average island girl to one of the biggest celebrities in the world.
