Rihanna Sings And Goes To A Mosque--No, She WASN'T Kicked Out

Global songstress and hit-maker Rihanna went to the UAE city of Abu Dhabi for a concert. The concert was a big hit and we almost we would not have heard about it had the diva not visited a local mosque in the area while she was in town. The site she chose to visit was the courtyard of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center. She was in town for Diamonds World Tour

Pop princess Rihanna sells albums for her sultry, attention-grabbing poses. But during a visit to the United Arab Emirates, her poses got her into hot water.

A covered-up Rihanna was decked out in a dark outfit, complete with what looked like the head gear worn by Muslim women. She posed in bright red lipstick and posted the pictures on her Instagram account. Rihanna's Twitter selfie sparks scandal

According to one account, "She was asked to leave before entering the actual mosque, (she was in the courtyard taking pictures) after taking some photos that did not fit within the rules and regulations set out to preserve the sacredness of the center," the mosque said in a statement. The singer did not immediately respond to the controversy about her photos. She was in town for a concert Saturday night.

This is not a big deal, she is fine to visit the courtyard, people do it all the time, no reason why she should be treated any differently. The mosque officials, said this was a personal visit and they had no prior knowledge of this visit. They are looking into the matter they said.

According to a reliable news-site, the mosque officials did not ask her to leave, this was reported by a number of international media outlets. The mosque committee, they welcome such visits and this is why they direct all tourists and visitors to go through the visitor center area. I do not there is a scandal, or something to explain, if anything this is good press for the landmark site.
