Rihanna Will Cover It Up
Rihanna will make good on being, well, good.
The R&B superstar will shun skimpy outfits when she performs in Malaysia next month, the concert’s organizers said, becoming the latest international star affected by the Muslim-majority country’s strict rules on performers’ dress.
Recent concerts by Gwen Stefani and Avril Lavigne faced protests by conservative Muslim Malaysians over immodest clothes. Stefani eventually made what she called “a major sacrifice” at her show by donning attire that revealed little skin, reports the Associated Press.
Under government guidelines, a female performer must be covered from the top of her chest, including her shoulders, to her knees.
The organizers of a Pussycat Dolls concert in 2006 were fined nearly $3,000 after the U.S. girl group was accused of flouting decency regulations.
