Rihanna Stirs Hopeless Controversy

(popmusiclife) Rihanna is still causing a stir in Ireland. After receiving major attention for filming her latest video, "We Found Love," in Belfast, the pop star may now get even more, following comments by Northern Ireland's Social Development Minister Nelson McCausland.

The BBC reports the politician has lashed out at Rihanna for suggesting that north Belfast is "a hopeless place."

The new video was filmed in parts of Northern Ireland, including a field in Bangor in County Down, and the New Lodge Road area of Belfast. Writing on his blog, McCausland notes, "apparently much of it involves her singing 'I found love in a hopeless place'. This is set against a background of drugs, alcohol and gambling, interspersed with shots of the New Lodge flats and views of the general area. 'A hopeless place?' Fortunately most people who see the video will have no idea where it was filmed." more on this story
