Farmer Halts Topless Rihanna Video Shoot

  • The owner of a farm in Northern Ireland where Rihanna was filming a music video stopped the shoot when the R&B star went topless.

    Rihanna -- who is in Northern Ireland this week to perform three concerts -- was filming the video Monday in Alan Graham's wheat field east of Belfast for her new single, "We Found Love."

    The singer made several wardrobe changes, switching from a flannel shirt into a stars-and-stripes bikini, a red bra, a mesh black top, and finally went topless before the farmer climbed off his tractor to protest.

    "From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate," the farmer told reporters.

    Graham -- who said he didn't know who was coming but would not have recognized Rihanna's name anyway -- said the two chatted afterward and ended on a friendly note.

    "I had a conversation with Rihanna. I hope she understands where I'm coming from. We shook hands."
