"My home, my country, my people… BARBADOS!" she tweeted Sunday.

In Vogue's April issue, the "Man Down" singer opened up about her relationship with her body, and why she wasn't afraid to show a little skin. "For the first time, I don't want to get rid of the curves," she said. "My body is comfortable, and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock it."

As far as her often over-the-top fashion choices, she told the magazine she loves taking risks: "When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that's a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me."
