While [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm] was filming her new video for “We Found Love” in a field in Ireland, she attracted quite the crowd frolicking in the field of green. Unfortunately for her, the reception wasn’t all good.

[photogallerylink id=121721 align=left]Wearing a bustier, a red and black plaid shirt and jean shorts accented by red bandanas as accessories, the “Cheers” singer was in the middle of changing for the next scene when the farmer who owned the cornfield asked her and her crew to stop shooting.

The next day in a radio interview, he explained that she was becoming inappropriate because she was taking off her clothes. He said he hold no ill will towards the singer and even suggested she find a “greater God.” Wow.

Handling the incident gracefully, Rihanna and crew packed up and moved along to the next set without a fight.

For the record, the farmer said he had no idea who Rihanna was despite selling more than 20 million records worldwide, it seems like the cornfield 10-miles outside of Belfast, Ireland is not ready to get Loud!

“Man Down” by Rihanna. This one has island flavor!

[photogallerylink id=70978 align=left]AMP favorites and LA natives, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Far East Movement[/lastfm] have plans to release the follow up to their debut album Free Wired at the beginning of 2012.

The group says they will get the album finished and to the label within the next two months, “After they give it a listen we’ll see where they want to take it — hopefully early 2012,” said Nish of the chart-topping band.

The sound for this album will feature songs that remind listeners of the dance-infused tracks from their first album but will also introduce sounds inspired by whats popular in the city right now. “We’ll have a few songs that show the hip-hop roots and the ‘Rocketeer’ style, and heavy synth dance tracks as well,” Nish continued, “But the majority of the album is going to be the L.A. dirty bass sound.

And in order to test that sound out, the boys have a unique method planned, “To accentuate the bass,” Nish adds, “we bought an old school refurbished 1989 Cadillac limo. I used to install car stereos, so I’m going to hook up the system myself and we’re going to take all of our songs in this car and drive around in L.A. and vibe out.

Unfortunately, the group is keeping tight-lipped on who will be featured on the new album, but they did reveal that they are working with super producer, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]David Guetta[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bangladesh[/lastfm], the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Stereotypes[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cherry Cherry Boom Boom[/lastfm], not to mention other new producers. And they are in talks with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lil Wayne[/lastfm] to “jump on a song,” Nish notes.

Just thinking about new music from Far East Movement makes me want to dance already!

Barbz! Kenz! Put your hand in the air! The Head Barb In Charge, Nicki Minaj says after opening for Britney Spears on tour, she’ll be headlining her own tour in 2012.

So far all we know is that it’s happening, details to be released soon. Not soon enough, if you ask me, but soon.

No word on the opening act, tour dates, venues, etc. Perez asked, Nicki answered. Now we just wait.

This should help keep you above water, “Fly” by Nicki Minaj featuring Rihanna.
