Rihanna to tone down her outfits for Abu Dhabi concert

Rihanna is scrambling to find a modest stage costume after she was asked to tone down her raunchy live act for an upcoming performance in the United Arab Emirates on New Year’s Eve.

The Umbrella singer, who is known for her daring and revealing outfits, will have to cover up when she takes the stage to ring in the New Year at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi – so as not to offend any conservative fans.

And she’s struggling to find something suitable – because her wardrobe is overflowing with eye-popping numbers.

A source tells the Daily Mirror, “Rihanna is tearing her hair out over what to do – she wanted to put on her most eccentric and provocative show yet. She knows that she’ll have to compromise her style to fit in with local traditions – but a huge part of her show is her sexy stage gear. The dress code in Abu Dhabi does not encourage excessively revealing outfits.”

The 21 year old, who is reportedly receiving $500,000 for the gig, faced protests in Malaysia earlier this year over a scheduled concert until she vowed to tone down her risque show and conform to strict dress and dance rules.

I think she should wear the outfit in the photo above, seems fitting enough not to offend anyone.

She looks like a big furry monster in her outfit in that photo above. Teehee. But what did she expect from Abu Dhabi? She should have considered the norms in the country before deciding on what kind of show she wants to put on there.

I wish the US could implement similar rules, that way strippers and singers can each have their own venue.

It’s disgusting how she portrays women with her “career.”

People talk about Muslim countries being oppressive of women, but in this case they are saying you can sing and dance and do as you please so long as you don’t get naked on stage – while in the US we encourage women to get naked in order to be successful/
