Irish farmer offended by Rihanna in bikini, tells her to ‘cover up’
Will pop sensation Rihanna call Irish farmer Alan Graham a “Rude Boy” for telling her to put some clothes on?
Probably not. The Barbados bombshell agreed to stop filming one of her new music videos in Graham’s Ireland grain field Monday after the 61-year-old Irishman disliked her prancing around his property in a tiny red bikini.
“I thought it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did,” Graham told the BBC.
Graham and the Grammy Award winner settled the matter like adults and shook hands, he says.
“I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands,” Graham told the BBC.
Rihanna’s chart topping hits and A-list status were irrelevant to the country boy, who simply didn’t want to see scantily clad women in his living space. Prior to Rihanna’s arrival, Graham hadn’t even heard of her. (RELATED PHOTOS: You can stand under my ‘Umbrella’: Rihanna [SLIDESHOW])
“I didn’t know who was coming. If the name ‘Rihanna’ had been mentioned, well, no disrespect but it wouldn’t have meant anything,” Graham said.
“S&M” singer Rihanna showed up to Graham’s field Monday to shoot her video and quickly caused a stir. According to BBC, the exotic young woman’s presence stopped traffic, and onlookers stared.
“From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate,” Graham said. “I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God.”
