Rihanna finally mingles with media, bloggers and fans on 777 plane

Rihanna

Rihanna finally emerged from first class to mingle and answer questions today, after 150 journalists, bloggers and fans voiced their complaints about not meeting Rihanna during her 777 Tour.

Rihanna’s record label, Def Jam, invited the journalists and bloggers to accompany Rihanna on a 7-day, 7-city whirlwind tour to promote her new album. But the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity turned into a nightmare as bloggers and journalists on board the so-called “777 plane” complained bitterly about not being allowed to shower, use the toilet or sleep in days.

The journalists said they were suffering in coach while Rihanna popped bottles and smoked weed with select friends and Def Jam execs in first class.

Things got so bad on board the tour plane that one desperately hungry journalist ripped off his clothes and streaked through the plane naked on Sunday.

Some journalists and bloggers conceded that they wouldn’t mind being subjected to the third world conditions on board the plane — if Rihanna would just show her face and speak to them.

Complex‘s Soo-Young Kim shot exclusive footage of Rihanna begrudgingly mingling with journalists on board the chartered plane.

      @Choco,
      HOUSTON (AP) – A Texas woman was sentenced to 80 years Tuesday for her felony murder conviction in the death of one of four children killed in a fire at her home day care in Houston.

      Jessica Tata, 24, was convicted last week in connection with the death of 16-month-old Elias Castillo. Authorities say Elias was one of seven children whom Tata left unsupervised at her home while she went to a nearby Target store. Prosecutors say she left a pan of oil cooking atop a stovetop burner and that this ignited the February 2011 blaze. Three other children were seriously injured.

      Along with the prison sentence, Tata was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine. She will have to serve 30 years of her sentence before she is eligible for parole, prosecutor Steve Baldassano said.

      “Nobody wins in this situation,” said Patty Sparks, Elias’ great-grandmother, after the sentence was announced. “My heart goes out to the Tata family and those precious mothers and fathers who lost their babies.”

      Tata could have received up to life in prison.

      She still faces three more counts of felony murder in relation to the other children who died, and three counts of abandoning a child and two counts of reckless injury to a child in relation to three who were hurt. Baldassano said prosecutors planned to pursue trials on the remaining felony murder charges.

      During the punishment phase of the trial, prosecutors argued Tata was an irresponsible day care owner who left the children she was caring for alone on multiple occasions and who ran an unclean facility. Tata’s family and friends told jurors she was a good person who loved kids. They asked the jury for mercy.

      Tata’s attorneys argued she never intended to hurt the children, who ranged in age from 16 months to 3 years old, and that she tried to save them. But prosecutors did not need to show she intended to harm the children, only that the deaths occurred because she put them in danger by leaving them alone. Under Texas law, a person can be convicted of felony murder if he or she committed an underlying felony and that action led to the death.

      “It’s tough because the verdict doesn’t undo things, but I think (the families of the victims) feel as if the jury listened to them and justice was done for their children,” Baldassano said afterward.

      One of the surviving children, Makayla ****erson, stood next to Baldassano as he spoke. She showed reporters scars the fire left on her right forearm.

      Baldassano also offered sympathy for Tata’s relatives, some of whom attended the trial.

      “But on the other hand, she brought this on herself,” Baldassano said. “She was being paid to watch these children. She knew better. She really can’t blame anybody or anything.”

      Defense attorney Mike DeGeurin said he still believes Tata should not have been tried for murder because the deaths were an accident.

      “The sentence is not going to fix things. It’s not going to make anybody feel better later on. But the jury has spoken. That’s their sentence,” DeGeurin said.

      When asked how Tata was doing after she heard her sentence, DeGeurin said: “She’s not doing well.”

      Tata fled to Nigeria in the wake of the fire but was captured after about a month, returned to the U.S. in March 2011 and has remained jailed since. She was born in the U.S. but has Nigerian citizenship.

      During Tata’s trial, which began Oct. 24, surveillance video was presented that showed her shopping at Target just before the fire occurred. A former Target manager told jurors that Tata did not seem to be in a hurry after realizing she had left the stove top burner on while the kids were at the day care.

      Neighbors testified that they heard the children crying during their unsuccessful attempts to rescue them from the blaze. Parents of the children who died or were injured told jurors they had trusted Tata, believing she was qualified.

      So no one brought food with them??? No one stopped at a quickie mart in between stops? No one stopped at a restoom to take a hoe bath?? These are all adults right??

      GTFOH. I bet you Rhi had time to wash her azz while all this phuckery was going on. And who streaks because they’re hungry?? No this phucker wanted to streak. He may have been under the influence of something, but he WANTED to streak. No hunger pain has ever MADE me do anything retarded like that. :beyface: <—crosses fingers :lol:

      The State of Georgia is rooting for Nas to make a fortune on his concert tour … because the government just got the green light to garnish a MILLION BUCKS from his earnings to repay a massive tax debt … TMZ has learned.

      The Georgia Department of Revenue has filed new legal docs in their effort to collect $1,083,435 from the rapper for taxes it claims Nas owes for the years 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010.

      According to court docs, the GDR obtained an order commanding Live Nation — the promo company behind Nas’ tour with Lauryn Hill — to garnish his wages until the dept is satisfied.

      The tour is currently underway, and Nas — who’s also on the hook for millions in unpaid taxes to the federal government — is sure to make a boatload of money.

      A rep for Nas tells us the matter has recently been settled — but the GDR insists the case is still open and they’re trying to collect.

      Pay your taxes, people.

      They stay :chase: Nas did he pay any damn taxes or did he just pay Kelis :srug:
