Rihanna to Usher in New Year With Actual Clothes On

This outfit is probably off-limits.

Rihanna is performing at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, the second-largest city in the United Arab Emirates, on New Year's Eve. But the partygoers won't get the scantily clad Rihanna they're used to, as the singer was reportedly asked to tone down her sexy stage costume for the performance. (Beyoncé faced the same challenge for a concert in Malaysia, which was later postponed.) RiRi is supposedly getting $500,000 for the gig, which seems to be the price of her stylistic dignity. At least she'll be warm. [PopCrunch]
