While shooting the video for her single “We Found Love” this week in Bangor, a town in Northern Ireland, Rihanna took the notion of frolicking in a field a little too far for the tastes of the landowner, Democratic Unionist Party Alderman Alan Graham. The farmer was fetching his tractor when he saw the singer’s scantily-clad body and objected, bringing filming to a halt. Graham, who admitted to having no idea who Rihanna was before he got a call asking permission to use his field, told BBC News, “From my point of view, it was my land, I have an ethos and I felt it was inappropriate.” After voicing his concerns to the Barbadian pop star, Graham shook hands with her on the matter. He said, “I wish no ill will against Rihanna and her friends. Perhaps they could acquaint themselves with a greater God.”
