Rihanna’s disastrous #777 Tour is over and the 24-year-old singer is once again alone with her thoughts
and her hard liquor. The Bajan singer tweeted this photo of herself on her “big ole jet” earlier today. In another tweet she wrote: #777 Tour is a wrap! Thanks to everyone who was a part of this. It was an incredible experience for my fans and I!
It’s interesting to note that Rihanna, at least subconsciously, admits that it wasn’t an incredible experience for the journos and bloggers.
Rihanna Air survivors are still voicing their displeasure at the third world conditions they were subjected to on board the so-called 777 plane. About 250 journalists, bloggers and fans were invited to join singer Rihanna on her 7-day, 7-country, 7-concert world tour to promote her new album.
But conditions on board the air bus quickly descended into chaos and anarchy when Rihanna’s guests discovered that the only time they would ever see the singer was onstage nightly.
Also of immediate concern to the media was their general discomfort on board the plane. While Rihanna and her friends relaxed in the lap of luxury in 1st class — her media guests were herded together like cattle back in coach.
Us Weekly‘s Senior Editor Ian Drew was among the 250 unlucky journos, bloggers and fans who accompanied Rihanna on a frenetic 7-city, 7-day concert tour to promote her new Unapologetic album.
Rihanna was certainly unapologetic after numerous complaints from the journos who lacked adequate sleep, Wi-Fi, or bottled water.
By day 3, the restless
captives media considered abandoning the disorganized tour altogether.
