If you clicked through yesterday’s The Crap We Missed, you might have noticed Rihanna shooting a video in Ireland wearing what appears to be a bikini made out of red bandanas. Turns out the farmer who owns the field also noticed and found his Christian sensibilities to be offended. BBC News reports:
“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,” he said.
Mr Graham admitted that he did not know who the 23-year-old sex symbol was when he got a phone call to ask for the use of his field in Bangor, County Down, for a pop video last week.
“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.
… “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,” he said.
I should probably mention that photos came in this morning showing Rihanna running around completely topless during the shoot, so there’s that. But just for future reference, let’s make sure we’re all clear on what’s acceptable in Ireland and what’s not:
- Drinking yourself into a state of self-pissification. Acceptable.
- Punching women in the face. Acceptable.
- Practicing a religion that allows clergy to rape young boys in the mouth. Acceptable.
- Blowing up Protestants. Acceptable.
- Women’s breasts in a field. Unacceptable. “Yell fright’n the pataydoes.”
