Rihanna apologizes to Muslim community for “unintentionally offensive” use of song during fashion show

Rihanna’s fashion show for her lingerie brand, Savage X Fenty, was held last week despite the coronavirus pandemic, and the star-studded event was streamed on Amazon Prime. Some viewers honed in on one of the songs used, “Doom” by Coucou Chloe, which some deemed offensive. 

Rihanna has now apologized to the Muslim community for using the song during the show. 

Entertainment Tonight reports the 2016 song includes a narration of Hadith, sayings and actions of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, about the end of the world and the afterlife. The Hadith is a sacred text to Muslims.

After several people pointed out that the song includes a remixed reading of the sacred text, Rihanna and the artist behind the song posted apologies on social media. 

“I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our Savage X Fenty show,” Rihanna wrote

Rihanna apologizes to Muslim community for using song with Islamic scripture in fashion show

Rihanna is issuing an apology for an offensive song selection in her 2020 Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 Show.

While the designer and singer was praised for the inclusivity of her fashion show, which streamed on Prime Video on Friday, she’s since faced backlash for having the lingerie models strut to the song “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe. The song, which is on the show’s official soundtrack, includes sacred Islamic verses — specifically a remix of a Hadith narration from the Prophet Muhammad about the end of times and judgment day — leading Rihanna’s Muslim fans to call her over it.

In an apology on Tuesday, Rihanna took responsibility for the “huge oversight” and vowed that it won’t happen again.

“I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show,” Rihanna wrote on social media Tuesday.

Rihanna has apologized after receiving backlash for using a song that includes sacred Islamic scripture during her Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 lingerie fashion show, which was released on Prime Video last week.

Models danced to “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe during one segment of the show, and fans were quick to call attention to the fact that the 2017 song features a remix of a Hadith narration.

“There’s really no way we can let this slide,” one person wrote on Twitter alongside a screen recording of the dance number. “This makes me sick,” a second social media user replied.

In the Islamic faith, the Hadith is a sacred scripture of the sayings and traditions of the Prophet Mohammed. It “comes secondary only to the Quran in terms of textual authority,” according to CNN.

The Wedding Present announce album of James Bond theme song covers to benefit CALM

Not From Where I’m Standing will see The Wedding Present (and former members) cover 20 James Bond theme songs to raise money for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

Speaking about the project, The Wedding Present’s David Gedge said, “Where do ideas like this come from? Well, I can tell you that this one was born during a soundcheck in New Zealand, in 2013, when the band were playing around with the main melody of the classic Bond theme “You Only Live Twice”.”

Gedge adds, “And then came another idea. Each of the artists on this proposed compilation would be required to have a physical connection to Cinerama or The Wedding Present. I liked the unifying feel of that. I suppose it appealed to the collector in me. None of the artists I approached asked for payment for their track and so the obvious thing to do was to make this
