Rihanna Asked To Leave Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque After Posing For Photos

Posted on Sun Oct 20, 2013 01:00 PM PDT


Rihanna took a more conservative approach during her visit to the Middle East as she wore an all black ensemble while taking photos outside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in the United Arab Emirates, but she was still asked to leave!

The 25-year-old Diamonds singer is usually known for her revealing style but despite her efforts to respect local customs, her impromptu Instagram photo shoot has caused some controversy. RiRi's series of sultry poses outside the mosque were seen as disrespectful for a place of worship from the Middle Eastern community, and the mosque said in a statement:

    “The Centre strives to ensure that visitors enter the mosque in a decent fashion, and refrain from behaving in any way that is inconsistent with the sanctity of this religious place. Here, the Centre refers to a recent incident, involving a singer who came for a private visit to the mosque, at a gate that is not reserved for visitors, without prior coordination with the Centre’s management and without identifying herself.”
