Even dressed head-to-toe in a hooded black jumpsuit Rihanna has managed to provoke 'outrage'.
She posted images on her Instagram account showing her posing at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in UAE, where she is currently on tour.
Despite a very conscious effort to tone down her usual attention-grabbing-garb, she is seen sporting crimson lipstick and wearing dark red fingernails while adopting a series of trademark sultry, pouting poses that some have deemed disrespectful for a place of worship.
Her picture prompted a few trivial outraged tweets such as the whatever she does is wrong tweet:
Rihanna may look gorgeous and all but she's covering her head out of fashion not out of respect for the mosque, wrote one user.
