Rihanna posed for some risque pictures – one of them above – at the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi and posted it on her Instagram page, but she was unceremoniously kicked out of the mosque for doing just that.
According to mosque officials, Rihanna was kicked out after posing for pictures in an area typically restricted to tourists.
The officials said in a statement that Rihanna’s actions ‘violated the status and sanctity of the mosque’, adding, ‘The Centre strives to ensure that visitors enter the mosque in a decent fashion, and refrain from behaving in any way that is inconsistent with the sanctity of this religious place.’
‘Here, the Centre refers to a recent incident, involving a singer who came for a private visit to the mosque at a gate that is not reserved for visitors, without prior coordination with the Centre’s management and without identifying herself.’
Rihanna was in Abu Dhabi over the weekend as part of her ongoing Diamonds tour, and was forced to cover up for the first time in a long time. However, it did not stop her for being the self- professed ‘rude girl’ that she is.
