Back in 2013, Rihanna did a photo-shoot at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre in Abu Dhabi. However, she was asked to leave after she clicked a few “inappropriate photos”. A statement issued by the Grand Mosque Centre read, “She was confronted by the mosque officials and directed to the appropriate entrance to the mosque, to carry out a visit under the normal conditions.”

She landed in another controversy during the launch show of her brand Savage X Fenty. The event had song ‘Doom’ being played which had the Muslim text called Hadith in it. This did not go well with people and they called her out immediately.
