Rihanna Goes Topless, Criticized by Irish Farmer
According to Billboard, farmer Alan Graham had enacted a no-nudity rule for his property, where the video was being filmed. The singer was reportedly wearing several outfits throughout the day — including a black mesh top and American flag-inspired bikini — but at one point went topless.
Graham, who was riding the grounds on his tractor, saw this and approached the star face-to-face. “I thought it was inappropriate,” Graham told the BBC. “I requested them to stop and they did. I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.”
He added, “From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate. I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God.”
Rihanna will perform three shows in Northern Ireland this week, and continue on her UK tour with Calvin Harris, her ‘We Found Love’ collaborator, through December. RiRi’s sixth studio album is set to arrive on Nov. 21.
