Following Malaysian law, Rihanna will perform covered up from the top of her chest, including her shoulders, to her knees. In the predominantly Muslim country, these are the guidelines for female performers. Sometimes Rihanna has over done it with her outfits (like below), but if she is as fashionably versatile as we all know her to be, no doubt she will be rockin’ out in something tasteful AND hot. Sometimes less skin can be more sexy, and the more you’re wearing, the more creative you can get, right?
The Pussycat Dolls’ concert organizers got fined $3,000 a few years ago for not following the rules over there, and people protested both Gwen Stefani’s and, get this, Avril Lavigne’s (whaaaaat?) concerts there because of that. Interesting. On one hand, you should be able to wear what you want, but don’t you think respecting your fans’s culture is important, too? Especially when they are the ones paying to see you, not the other way around. What do you think?
Rihanna’s show in Malaysia will have a 16,000 person capacity, and tickets are apparently selling quickly. You go, girl!
Maybe she’ll pick up some new Asian or Muslim-inspired outfits/accessories when she’s there. Think she’ll be sporting something traditional?
Let’s see how she shakes. What do y’all think she’ll wear to the show? Whatever it is, hopefully it’ll be fly…
