Sexy R&B star Rihanna angered a Northern Ireland farmer Monday when she stripped down on his lands for a racy video shoot.
Alan Graham, 61, who lent the pop star a corn field to shoot her latest video “We Found Love,” said he found Rihanna’s behavior “inappropriate” and drove over in his tractor to tell the scantily clad star to put some clothes on.
Graham says he enforced a dress code as he watched Rihanna shoot a video Monday in his wheat field in Bangor, east of Belfast, for her new single, “We Found Love.” She’s in Northern Ireland this week to perform three concerts.
The 23-year-old switched from a flannel checked shirt into a stars-and-stripes bikini, a red bra, a mesh black top, and finally went topless before Graham climbed off his tractor to protest.
Traffic came to a standstill near the field in Bangor, about 13 miles east of Belfast, on Monday, as fans tried to catch a glimpse of the “Rude Boy” singer, who stripped down to a red bikini and was also seen wearing an American flag bikini and unbuttoned jeans.
Graham, who admitted he was not “familiar” with Rihanna’s work, said, “If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say, ‘Enough is enough. You are not entitled to do that’.”
He added, “I requested that they stop filming and they did. I had a conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.”
The farmer, also a local politician for the Democratic Unionist Party, said he did not receive any payment for loaning his field and had earlier helped Rihanna’s crew free some equipment that got stuck in the mud.
The incident even prompted a political debate in the Northern Ireland Assembly, with one politician asking the country’s first minister Peter Robinson — the leader of Graham’s political party — whether potential investors might be deterred after the pop star was kicked out of a field for nothing more than “wearing red, white and blue.”
Rihanna is understood to have resumed filming at a secret location in Belfast, where she is performing at the weekend.
Rihanna’s No Farmer’s Daughter! RiRi Asked To Cover Up On Music Video Shoot
The farmer must be the first (and only) to want Rihanna to stay dressed!
While shooting her new music video in Northern Ireland yesterday, Rihanna was approached by the owner of the land they were shooting on because he felt her attire was too revealing.
The farmer Alan Graham, reveals that he attempted to keep tight-lipped while he watch the crew shoot scenes for RiRi’s We Found Love video. He was okay with the situation when she was donning a flannel checked shirt and jeans. He was uncomfy when she switched to a stars-and-stripes bikini with a red bra and a mesh black top. He brought the shoot to a standstill when she took off her top for a scene, jumping off his tractor and racing forward to stop the display.
“I had a conversation with Rihanna. I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.”
His land, his rules. Can’t blame the guy for asking her to dress more conservatively if that is what he wants. Must’ve been a real shock for him.
Bet he doesn’t see that in his wheat fields very often!
We’ve seen a lot of pictures of Rihanna wearing see-through clothing and we’ve seen a lot of photos of her grabbing her own bosom while performing on stage and now we’re getting a look at Rihanna wearing seethrough garment while filming a music video in Belfast … Amazing
Northern Ireland Farmer Orders Topless Rihanna Off His Property
Northern Ireland farmer Alan Graham has no idea who Rihanna is, but he knows one thing for certain: If the Bajan Mama wants to perform on his property, she’ll have to keep her clothes on!
Pop superstar Rihanna was thrown off the farmer’s land this week after he objected to the singer stripping down to a bikini while filming a new video just outside Belfast. (She’s in Northern Ireland this week to perform three concerts.) The Grammy winner was recording a video for her new single “We Found Love” in a muddy barley field in the town of Bangor on Monday, but Farmer Graham, who had initially given the singer permission for the shoot on his land, decided RiRi had pushed the envelope too far when she disrobed from a modest flannel checkered shirt to unveil the red patterned bikini that’d been hiding beneath the surface. The 23-year-old switched into a stars-and-stripes two-piece, a red bra, a mesh black top, and finally went topless before Graham, a 61-year-old devoted Christian, climbed off his tractor to protest.
The filming took place near a busy road and hundreds of people gathered to watch the performance, with some using their camera phones to record the shoot. The got more than they bargained for when Farmer Graham ordered Rihanna to cover up.
“Her behavior was inappropriate,” Graham, who is a member of the Protestant, conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), tells The BBC. “She understood where I was coming from. We shook hands and parted company on good terms. I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God.”
Graham said he had not been aware of what the production team had in mind for the video when he gave permission for his land to be used. He had even helped the team prepare for the shoot, pulling some recording equipment which got stuck in mud and filling in a hole with straw. The farmer admits, however, that he’d never heard of Rihanna, who has won three Grammys and sold more than 20 million albums, until someone called him up about the shoot.
“Someone explained she was as big as it gets as far as pop stars were concerned. I am a bit illiterate about those issues.”
