Farmer orders raunchy Rihanna to cover up
Pop star was caught acting 'innapropriately' in fields near Bangor as she filmed her new video
A GOD-FEARING Northern Irish farmer ordered raunchy pop star Rihanna to cover up after discovering her acting "inappropriately" in one of his fields while filming a pop video.
Alan Graham, a Democratic Unionist Party alderman, had given permission for a video shoot to take place in one of the grain fields at his farm in Bangor. But when he went to fetch his tractor and caught a glimpse of the nubile 23-year-old singer stripping down to a bikini top he took action, asking her to stop.
He later explained that he felt that her "state of undress" was "inappropriate". "I requested them to stop and they did," said Graham, who spoke to the Barbadian singer in person. "I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I'm coming from. We shook hands and parted company on good terms," he said.
Rihanna was filming the video for the song We Found Love, a collaboration with Scottish dance musician Calvin Harris, in Northern Ireland ahead of three sold-out shows in Belfast this weekend.
Earlier traffic had practically ground to a standstill on the A2 near Bangor as the pop singer strutted her stuff by the roadside. But the order to cease and desist came when they moved onto Graham's private land.
The farmer, who had helped the film crew ferry equipment around the area, said that he had agreed to let them on his farm but admitted he had not heard of Rihanna. "I'm a bit long in the tooth for that," he explained. "From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate," he added. "I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God."
The encounter was even brought up at the Northern Irish Assembly where, as luck would have it, first minister and DUP leader Peter Robinson was briefing members about his recent trip to the US aimed at selling Northern Ireland to the entertainment industry.
