Several days ago, Rihanna visited the city of Abu Dhabi, the second largest city of the United Arab Emirates, and decided to have a photo shoot in front of a mosque. After the incident, the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center issued a statement saying that although the sacred area welcomes visitors of all faiths and backgrounds, the photos that Rihanna were posing for were “inappropriate, violated the ‘sanctity’ of the mosque and disrespected the religious nature of the location,” according to Gulf News.
Although Rihanna did abide by Abu Dhabi’s social norms and covered her body and hair as many Middle Eastern women do, she was not only standing in areas of the mosque that were off-limits to guests, but she was posing pretty seductively. Wearing bright red lipsticks and nail polish, Rihanna managed to sneak in some of her vivacious self during her photo shoot.
Rihanna proceeded to post these photos to her Instagram, where her caption for one of her photos was, “B*tch stole my look,” referring to a group of Muslim women standing near her that were wearing head scarves and full body garments. She also posted a picture of her basking in the sun with the hashtag, “#NoTanLines”.
Seriously WHAT ARE YOU DOING
