Even if Rihanna is a pop princess and sells her albums with a bit of sultry, and attention grabbing poses they might be have too much for some people.
While in town for a concert, the singer visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, where she was decked out in a dark outfit, complete with what looked like the head gear worn by Muslim women. She posed in bright red lipstick. Then she posted the pictures on her Instagram account.
She was asked to leave the site of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi after posing for photographs there over the weekend that the shrine’s overseers said had violated the “sanctity” of the site.
"She left without entering the mosque, after being asked to do so, due to the fact that she had taken some pictures that do not conform with the conditions and regulations put in place by the Center's management to regulate visits in a way that takes the status and sanctity of the mosque into consideration," according to a statement from Mosque overseers.
Even though she was covered from head to toe with black, she still wore tight black garments. This is specifically contradictory to the clothing rules that are posted on the mosques website.
It's not the first time Rihanna's social media efforts to promote herself have had consequences in real life on her current tour. Two men selling photo ops with an endangered slow loris in Phuket, Thailand, were arrested after she posted the photos she had taken. Others were arrested after she tweeted about a lewd sex show at a bar in the same location.
Maybe some things are meant to not be posted, Riri.
Rihanna's next stop is Israel so maybe watch out for that twitter feed folks, something might happen.
