An Irish farmer told superstar Rihanna to ‘cover up’ after he saw her filming a video in his field.
Alan Graham had rented his field in Bangor, County Down outside Belfast to a film production crew but had no idea who Rihanna was.
When she began stripping down for the video the conservative farmer became deeply embarrassed.
"I thought it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did," he explained.
"I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I'm coming from. We shook hands," he said.
He admitted he had no clue how famous she was "I didn't know who was coming. If the name 'Rihanna' had been mentioned, well, no disrespect but it wouldn't have meant anything," he explained.
"From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate.
"I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God” he said.
Graham is a god-fearing religious man and a local councilor for the Democratic Unionist Party, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Rihanna, from Barabados is one of the world’s hottest stars since her 2007 hit, ‘Umbrella.’
