Covering Rihanna...

Northern Ireland farmer Alan Graham says he doesn't know who Rihanna is, but she must keep her top on while performing on his land.

Graham says he enforced a dress code as he watched Rihanna shoot a video Monday in his wheat field in Bangor, east of Belfast, for her new single, "We Found Love." She's in Northern Ireland this week to perform three concerts.

The 23-year-old switched from a flannel checked shirt into a stars-and-stripes bikini, a red bra, a mesh black top and finally went topless before Graham climbed off his tractor to protest.

"The state of undress was becoming inappropriate," Graham says. "I had a conversation with Rihanna. I hope she understands where I'm coming from. We shook hands."

Hordes of locals gathered to watch the pop star film the video.

Feeling no new pain...

Ellen DeGeneres says she's fine after feeling chest pains that prompted paramedics to respond to the Burbank studio where her daytime talk show is taped.

The comedian says in a statement issued Monday that she doesn't know what caused the chest pain, "but it's fine."

DeGeneres says she started having chest pains Sunday night and woke up feeling tightness and heaviness in her chest. She compared the feeling to having two cats on her chest.

She said the pains lingered when she came to work, so she called 911 "to be safe." She joked that the paramedics may have overreacted, saying multiple trucks and ambulances showed up on the Warner Bros. lot and appeared "like one marching band short of a parade."

She thanked the medical responders "for caring so much."

Octomom house for sale...

A for-sale sign was posted on the front lawn of the house where octuplets mom Nadya Suleman has lived for more than two years.

The 2,583-square-foot house with four bedrooms and three bathrooms in the Orange County community of La Habra is listed at $525,000.

"Don't miss the opportunity to own this previously owned celebrity home!" states the listing at www.realtor.com. "Won't last!"

The octuplets were born in January 2009. Suleman previously had six children. All 14 were conceived through the in-vitro process.

The listing agent, Rebecca Mercado, couldn't be reached to comment.

Suleman owes a $450,000 balloon payment to Amer Haddadin, who is the note holder on the home and has threatened several times over the past several months to kick her out if she doesn't come up with the money.

Haddadin said Monday that he has been trying to persuade Suleman to sell the house all summer and had had no idea that a sign had been erected in the front yard.

Suleman has not made a payment on the house since May, he said.
