(Newser) – Rihanna wore a headscarf and black jumpsuit for a weekend photo shoot in Abu Dhabi but her presence was still considered inappropriate for the location—the world's eighth-biggest mosque. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre says she was asked to leave after she arrived at "a gate that is not reserved for visitors" and proceeded to pose for photos in a way that failed to take "the status and sanctity of the mosque into consideration," the National reports. The singer later tweeted photos of herself striking several poses inside the mosque, including one of her lying on her back, the BBC notes.

Hey Rihanna, you don't have to go all the way to Abu Dhabi to be a stupid, self-absorbed idiot. You can do that at home and not involve the rest of the world.
