Excuse us while we catch our breath.
Rihanna was the ultimate hometown hottie in her native Barbados on Monday, where the 23-year-old pop star showed off nearly every luscious inch of her body in the annual Kadooment Day parade.
The hip-hop beauty, clad in a red, barely-there costume, showed off her flat tummy, mile-long legs, tiny tattoos and a tush that holds up from California to the Caribbean.
Kadooment Day, according to Barbados.org, “can be traced back to the 1780's, a time when Barbados was the world's largest producer of sugar. At the end of the sugar season, there was always a huge celebration to mark the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest.”
Barbados might not be the world’s sugar leader anymore -- Brazil holds the title -- but thanks to the gorgeous pop star, they’ve got a claim to fame every bit as sweet.
