Rihanna making a scene over in Northern Ireland

She may be an international star, but Rihanna and her clothing had a farmer over in Northern Ireland hopping mad Tuesday, the New York Post reports. When Alan Graham saw what Rihanna was wearing to shoot a video in his cornfield Monday in Bangor, east of Belfast, he got mad, mad enough to drive his tractor over and give her a piece of his mind:
"If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say, 'Enough is enough. You are not entitled to do that'."
He added, "I requested that they stop filming and they did. I had a conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I'm coming from. We shook hands."
The Post reports the wardrobe choices in question were two bikinis -- one red, one American flag -- and unbuttoned jeans. And that was enough to grind traffic to a halt near the field.
Rihanna apparently packed up for "filming at a secret location in Belfast," a location so secret that the Associated Press had moved at least 33 pictures Tuesday afternoon, including the one above in which Rihanna was yelling at the onlookers to move back. The secret spot was in the New Lodge area of North Belfast, according to the Associated Press. She is performing in Belfast this weekend, which is apparently why hundreds of good American fields got ruled out.
