Rihanna Goes Topless and Angers Irish Farmer During Video Shoot
Rihanna has never been shy about her words or baring her curvy figure for the camera, but on the set of her latest video in Ireland for her new single, “We Found Love,” the Bajan beauty took things too far for a local farmer after she decided to go topless during filming.
According to the BBC, the adventurous fashionista was filming her new video in the grain field of a Bangor, Ireland farmer, Alderman Alan Graham, on Sept. 26 when the incident happened. Rihanna, who was already dressed in barely-there outfits including an open flannel shirt over a red bandana-turned-bra, decided to make the shoot a little more risqué and go topless, much to the shock and chagrin of Graham, who was fetching his tractor when he spotted the bare-breasted singer.
“I thought it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did,” he explained. “I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.”
According to Graham, when he agreed to allow the Loud singer to film on his property, he had no idea who she was.
“I didn’t know who was coming. If the name ‘Rihanna’ had been mentioned, well, no disrespect but it wouldn’t have meant anything,” he explained.
And though Rihanna literally stopped traffic as hundreds of happy spectators watched the coquettish singer flaunt her stuff, Graham explains that he felt Rihanna violated the sanctity of his land.
“From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate,” said Graham, however, adding that he holds no grudges against Rihanna.
“I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God,” he said. –nicholas robinson
