Rihanna builds shrine to commemorate Bob Marley

London: Rihanna has built a shrine to legendary musician Bob Marley complete with memorabilia, incense and a giant portrait of the late singer at her home.

The room in her Los Angeles mansion dedicated to the Jamaican singer is adorned by gun-shaped chandeliers, hues of green, yellow and red and has a bar which is used by the singer to lounge around, Contactmusic reported.

"The Bob Marley room is my loungey room, so there`s incense burning, there`s a painting on the wall of Bob Marley in black and white, which I love. The rest of the room goes from green into yellow into red, like the Jamaican flag," said Rihanna.

"There`s a little coffee table and these seats that are like big pillows on the floor, so it`s not formal at all. There are lots of Bob Marley books, lyric books," the 22-year-old singer added.

The `Rude Boy` hitmaker considers Marley her personal "favourite" for paving the way for artistes like her.

"He`s one of my favourite artists of all time ? he really paved the way for every other artist out of the Caribbean."
