Rihanna’s 7-7-7 publicity tour concluded yesterday evening with an apology to passengers in an effort to ensure that there is no bad blood being harbored by fans and member’s of the media that accompanied the singer on her 7-day, 7-country tour aboard her private 777 jet. It seems that fans and press members alike were a little ticked with Rih Rih as they were barely able to spend anytime with her besides brief sightings during baggage claims and for drinks during the first day of the tour. Jeff Rosenthall of Rolling Stone shared, ”We haven’t seen Rihanna offstage since the first day, unless you count her popping up at baggage claim for a few moments on the morning of the second.”
To make matters worst, several members of the media reported that there was minimal sleep and food, which you could imagine probably had folks aboard that flight a bit testy. There were also random reports of an Australian media person who streaked through the plane claiming that he was delirious after going for extended periods of time without food or sleep. According to The YBF, Rih Rih’s half apology for the drama went something like this:
“I know you guys got barely any dirt. …But I had to be good. I still sound like s**t.”
“I had to preserve my health. Normally, I’d be back here popping bottles with y’all. 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.”
“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.”
Um glad you enjoyed yourself, too bad no one else did and your passengers are calling the trip a nightmare. And what about the poor living conditions and nearly starving your passengers to death? Maybe she’ll get it right next time.
