Editor's Viewpoint: A star in her field

Published 27/09/2011

It sounded like a wind-up. Pop superstars like Rihanna don't film the videos for their next hit in a field in Bangor, do they?

But it was true and in true diva style Rihanna had a full entourage in tow for the filming which comes just days before three sell-out concerts in Belfast.

With the MTV awards coming to the city soon, it seems that Northern Ireland is well and truly on the destination map for pop's top performers. And for Rihanna to choose the province as the location for her latest video is bound to make other stars consider our charms as well as put it on the map for her legion of fans. To them endorsement by Rihanna is far more potent than inclusion in any guide book.
