(SOURCE: The Travel) -Rihanna definitely doesn’t have to go back to her home country of Barbados. In fact, nobody has to. But the uber-famous popstar returns her eastern Caribbean island because she loves it. And she’s not the only major star who flies down.
Mark Wahlberg, Justin Bieber, and Oprah can all be spotted flying down in first-class. Or, more than likely, private. Even Andrew Llyod Webber has been seen down there. But maybe that’s because he wanted to escape all the negative press for the Cats movie.
More than likely, Barbados attracts these people because it’s straight-up beautiful. It’s home to gorgeous cities like Bridgetown, a synagogue founded in 1654, plantation houses, cave formations, and phenomenal beaches.
Without further ado, here are Rihanna, Mark Wahlberg, and 18 other celebs who love to vacation in Barbados.
