Asked why she was kicked out, Rhianna responded "beats me?"

Why, yes, everyone is totally okay with you sexualizing their place of worship.  No one in the US would mind if their church were used for a porn-shoot, must be the Muslims' fault.

Looks like she wasn't a hit with the locals.

In Saudi Arabia, she'd be imprisoned or killed. Not sure about Abu Dhabi's laws.
 
2013-10-21 04:11:00 PM  
She's lucky she wasn't arrested / stoned to death.

I figured. The mosque doesn't help itself by insisting she didn't use the visitors entrance when she probably tried to use the male entrance instead of the entrance for women.

Considering what would have happened in any other Muslim country; they were very courteous, and restrained.

'Asked to leave' is probably not the first thing many users were thinking. I'm sure a few were hoping for a beheading.

Queen Elizabeth visited a mosque in the Middle East many years ago. Women weren't allowed in, so while she visited she was referred to as His Majesty  King Elizabeth of England.

It's good to be King.

Yeah, sorry Farkers but Rihanna is nowhere close to attractive.  Beyonce OTOH...
 
2013-10-21 04:40:16 PM  
At least she covered her hair.

Ironic that they wouldn't allow a woman in a building that looks like the Grand Tetons. Ooo-la-la! That's French, Tish.
 
2013-10-21 04:41:20 PM  
I'm surprised the Muslims had an issue with Rihanna since the both agree that it's OK to beat a woman.

This reminds me of the Muslim twenty-somethings I see wearing leggings and a skintight top.  As long as only their hands, face, and feet are uncovered it's all nice and halal.  I've got no complaints.

Does she not have a management and legal team to handle these things?

Or does she prefer the free publicity about how 'daring' and 'edgy' she is?
 
2013-10-21 05:46:46 PM  
Several of the photos could be construed as suggestive, with one showing the pop star lying on her back in the mosque's courtyard

...Seriously?

...That's...that's not sexual.  At all.  AT.  ALL.  Well, the article links to her twitter, which links to her Instagram, so I shall brave the perilous waters there to see just how truly racy the pictures get.

*clicks away*

*comes back two minutes later*

...And the answer to that is...this racy.  Look at that khaki-entombed leg on the person on the background who isn't even Rihanna.

Churches in more touristy areas in Italy, Spain, France and Malta tend to hand out scarves to cover shoulders, places that aren't expecting visitors who don't know the dress code will just tell you to fark off.

I assume similar conventions apply to other countries in the region but can't give first hand accounts.

It would sure be a blow to "artistic freedom" if her plane, including her, her publicists, her agents, and her PR staff were blown utterly and completely out of the sky.

Yep, Western artistic freedom would surely be dealt a major blow if that were to happen. Not to mention the Capitalist, Zionist pig-dogs. They'd all be beside themselves with grief. And it would be a huge victory for Islam and/or Buddhism, or whatever else Christians hate. No doubt about it.

Hey look, I understand your point, and yes, she is on an American label, but I argue she's an international star who still calls her home Barbados.  Others have used  America as a jump-off point and aren't considered American.  Most of the British Invasion rock bands, for instance.
