Taking sexy photos is one of Rihanna's favorite things, but sometimes, it's just not appropriate. This weekend, the singer was ordered to leave an Abu Dhabi mosque after posting provocative photographs of herself posing at the sacred 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 Centre’s management to regulate visits in a way that takes the status and sanctity of the mosque into consideration," a mosque spokesperson told the local media.
Thankfully, Rihanna knew better than to show up naked. Per Islamic law, her head and body were fully covered. However, she was also sporting red nails and lipstick, bling, and form-hugging clothing -- not exactly up to dress code. That said, when is going to someone's place of worship to take sexy photos considered okay? We're thinking "never." Someone obviously didn't think this one through.
Moreover, we're starting to get tired of Rihanna's never-ending stream of provocative photos. She is beautiful, there's no question. But why does she need to commemorate every occasion with a naked (or otherwise shocking) photo? When she visits Greece, she posts a sexy photo. When she goes on safari, she posts a sexy photo. When she's in South Africa, she posts a photo of cookies. Okay, but that's the exception.
There must be more to Rihanna than being "Bad Girl RiRi," right? We get it: She's sexy, she's a rule-breaker, she does what she wants. But we'd love to see another side of her -- preferably a side that's wearing clothes, and not offending any major religious group.
