Rihanna Told to Cover Up by Irish Farmer
An Irish farmer who had given Rihanna permission to use his grain field to film her new music video shut down the production on Monday and chastised the pop singer for her "inappropriate" wardrobe.
Rihanna, 23, was dancing in a red handkerchief bikini when Alan Graham, 61, noticed her and drove over in his tractor to put a stop to things.
"I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate," Graham told the BBC. "I requested them to stop and they did."
Graham said he granted permission for Rihanna and her film crew to use his field even though he wasn't familiar with the often scantily-clad Grammy winner, whose hits include "S&M" and "Disturbia."
The shoot, for Rihanna's new single "We Found Love," has resumed in a different location, according to reports.
The two parted on good terms, according to Graham, shaking hands as he went on his way.
"I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends," he said later. "Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God."
