Rihanna -- Party Over Here, Party Over There

4/5/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna found another way to take her mind off tomorrow's big court case -- by taking the "Gettin' Over Chris Brown" party train to Barbados.



It's unclear why Ri is rockin' an old Ethiopian flag ... or hangin' on the shoulder of the Prime Minister of Barbados ... but we're told she's back in her homeland because she wants to "be as far away from [the Chris Brown] case as possible."

Plus, the weather ain't too bad either!

that's not just an old Ethiopian flag... it's a Rastafarian flag; which is still widely used by many rastafarians throughout the Caribbean, mostly in Jamaica, where the great Bob Marley & Peter Tosh were from. My Jamaican friend and guide is a pure true rasta and has many of those flags and photo of the old Emperor Selassie I of Ethiopia.

To many artists, it is also a form of fashion, such as dread locks, and wearing rasta colors accessories and jewelries and the like.

Yes I, Jah Rastafari

What's with all the stupid comments in here??? The post has TMZ saying its an Ethiopian flag. The guy in the pic is the prime minister of Barbados and Rihanna is doing what you guys want and that's to stay away from Chris. What do you want her to do? Be a hermit and not fun and go back to Chris. She's frickin 21 years old. That's your typical party age. She even said she's just a normal girl. Being a entertainer is her job, but at the end of the day, she's a regular person. After reading all these ignorant, hateful and disgusting comments on here, I can see why the rest of the world hates America.

Guess Who?    

Translation: She wants to be as far away from reality as possible. What a lesson she's teaching her young fans. Run and hide when trouble erupts. More importantly, stay beautiful. She really needs an education because her 15 minutes are up.

Ri is pathetic! Pure and simple! I look at her and see she is a very
insecure and sad young woman. I am not a hater, quite to the contrary; but I don't feel sorry for her though. Not in the least; at this point. After her going back to him. She needs counseling, as well. If
it does not happen (being hit) by Brown, it will happen again with
someone else in her future. How sad. But, read on, as you will see, I
have been there. And I have a platform and I hope all men and women
out there will see that there is strength in numbers........

I was a young woman in my 20's and I was beaten for simply doing
nothing. I was sitting next to him and he just went nuts., broke my
jaw in four places and left me on the floor. I am from an upper
middle class environment and let me assure you, it happens to men and
women in all classes. For those of you who say that she deserved to
be
hit because she attacked him; wrong! Chris Brown should have picked
up the phone and called the police for being hit. Men get beaten by
women too. Ri is a very stupid young girl. Her silence speaks volumns
about weakness and not taking this matter seriously. She has the
perfect platform to speak out with her celebrity. Her PR people
should be fired for not pushing her in that direction. Damage control
is not their forte. Her heart is ahead of her head. I will no longer
support her, and she deserves to have her career stilted. Boycott her
records; as well as Brown's. Don't go to the concerts either. Write
to Cover Girl and ask them to pull her ads. I have. If she will not
speak up on behalf of all women, and men, who have been beaten; then
all of us should do so by boycotting. Show the world that there are
men and women ou tthere who will speak out against such violence. It
seems apparent that she lives in a dream world of denial.

This is not a black or a white issue. It is a violence issue. STOP
THE VIOLENCE! There is enough hate in this world. All we need is
love (the Beatles had it right) and care about each other.
BOYCOTT!!!!!! Those of you who continue to support Ri and Brown are
just as bad as they are. You are supporting violence. STOP!!!!!
BOYCOTT!!!! AND LEARN TO LOVE!

AND TMZ -- FOR GOD'S SAKE, GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. YOU ARE CONSISTENTLY MAKING ERRORS. HAVE YOUR REPORTERS DO THEIR RESEARCH. HARVEY, I THINK YOU NEED TO BE ON TOP OF THIS STUFF. WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? IT IS AN INSULT TO THE PEOPLE OF BARBADOS. NEVER "ASSUME" ANYTHING. TEACH YOUR YOUNG REPORTERS HOW TO RESEARCH; WILL YOU PLEASE?

Peace People!
