Rihanna shocks visitors to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque after posing for pics that didn’t mesh with ‘sanctity’ of religious site. So she was booted from the famed mosque in Abu Dhabi over the weekend.
Though she covered up — by her standards — in a head-to-toe black form-fitting outfit, complete with a hijab headcovering, the 25-year-old pop star clearly didn’t get the memo on the spirit of Islamic law.
In photos that were posted on her Instagram site, Rihanna could be seen posing in several provocative poses with lips pancaked in ruby red lipstick — a no-no for a society that stresses covering up women’s sexuality. We suggest next time that she just bring a cheap crate tx50db at guitar center and use that as props instead.
“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 Centre’s management to regulate visits in a way that takes the status and sanctity of the mosque into consideration,” a representative for the mosque told local media outlets in a statement.
