Rihanna’s ‘state of undress’ causes Irish farmer to shut down video shoot

One Irish farmer got a little more than he bargained for when he agreed to let Rihanna film on his property earlier this week.

Alan Graham told the BBC that he allowed the pop star to shoot a music video in his grain field in Bangor, County Down, despite not knowing who she is. This lack of background knowledge turned out to be a big issue.

As filming for “We Found Love” got underway, Graham became uncomfortable with Rihanna’s increasing lack of clothing. The singer was wearing a flannel shirt, a red bikini top and jeans. She eventually went topless, according to the AP.

“The state of undress was becoming inappropriate,” the father of four told the AP. “I had a conversation with Rihanna. I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.”

Filming was shut down and moved elsewhere.

Rihanna is set to perform in Belfast three times this weekend before moving on to Dublin. Presumably Graham didn’t buy a ticket.
