Lots of people were upset with Rihanna’s pictures and poses at Sh. Zayed’s Mosque in Abu Dhabi, and thought they were disrespectful and provocative. Mosque officials thought so too, and asked Rihanna to leave their premises. They also confirm that she never went inside the mosque.
You got to love the UAE for their no nonsense policy. And the fact that they weren’t intimidated by an international super star like Rihanna. Major respect.
“The Centre would like to point to a personal visit incident that was carried out by ‘a prominent singer’ to the mosque. The singer did not make arrangements with the mosque’s management prior to her visit and had used an entrance that is not intended for visitors.
Despite being directed to enter through the visitors’ entrance to take a standard tour of the mosque, the singer stayed outside to take some photos. She was asked to leave once it became apparent that some of the photographs she took were not in compliance with the terms of the mosque.”-via LA Times.
