Singer Rihanna says that a photograph taken of her while she filmed a video in Northern Ireland and which was then used without her permission on T-shirts sold by Topshop was unflattering.

This opinion was obviously not shared by the almost 12,000 customers who snapped up the offending article of clothing before she launched her successful legal action against the retailer.

The Umbrella singer's video shoot was an eventful episode, starting off with a Co Down farmer and DUP member telling the topless singer to cover up on his land.

Then there was the fateful photograph. But judging by the reception she got in Northern Ireland, most people thought she looked very well indeed.
