Everybody thought Rihanna was crazy when she announced she was going to take 250 journalists and fans with her for her 777 Tour – seven shows in seven countries in seven days. On day one, RiRi was popping bottles for her guests and seemed amped to embark on the biggest tour of her career. And now, a week later, it’s safe to say the journey wasn’t as pleasant as some might have hoped.
Plenty of reviews came pouring out of that Delta 777 airplane about how the reporters and camera men barely got any face time or sound bites from Rihanna. In fact, an Australian shock jock stripped naked and ran down the aisles on the plane to grab attention from her. Or maybe he was just a bit intoxicated.
As the tour is about to wrap up tonight in New York City, Rihanna addressed everyone and even apologized for the lack of face time they got with her. The reason for it all? The girl is sick as a dog! “Guess what, we made it! This has been an experience that I will never, ever forget,” she told the plane, according to Us Weekly. “I barely slept. My sleeping was all done on this plane. I want to thank everyone for making this trip the s**t. I want to see the naked Australian!”
Addressing the reporters less-than-patient attitudes, Rihanna continued, “I know you guys got barely any dirt. But I had to be good. I still sound like s**t. It’s impossible to spend time with everybody and I’m sorry I didn’t. But this was excellent and I would definitely do it again.”
“I had to preserve my health. Normally, I’d be back here popping bottles with ya’ll,” she explained. “I had to preserve my voice. I was worried about my body more than partying on the plane, so I had to just sleep whenever I could. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did.” I’m going to take a wild guess and say they probably had a bit of a different experience that wasn’t exactly “fun.”
What do you think about how Rihanna acted on the 777 Tour? Understandable or unacceptable?
