Rihanna ordered to cover up by farmer

Rihanna was ordered to cover up her skimpy outfits during a video shoot in a muddy field because a local farmer deemed her racy costumes "inappropriate".

The Umbrella hitmaker was snapped filming a promo for her new track We Found Love on agricultural land in Bangor, Northern Ireland on Monday (26Sep11).

She braved chilly temperatures to shoot clips in a variety of sexy garments including a red bikini beneath an unbuttoned shirt, a Stars and Stripes bra, and a cropped black mesh top.

But camera crews were forced to halt the shoot when the farmer who owns the field complained about Rihanna's eye-popping outfits.

Alan Graham tells the BBC he was on his way to collect his tractor when he spotted the saucy shoot and decided to intervene.

He says, "I thought it was inappropriate. 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.

"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."

The farmer revealed he was contacted by Rihanna's representatives earlier this month (Sep11) and was asked if they could use his land for the shoot, but he had no idea who she is.

He adds, "I didn't know who was coming. If the name Rihanna had been mentioned, well, no disrespect but it wouldn't have meant anything."

Rihanna is in Northern Ireland ahead of her trio of concerts in Belfast later this week (begs26Sep11).
