According to MTV and other news outlets, things aren't going so well on her 777 Tour plane. Rihanna invited 200 of her biggest Stans, bloggers and media people to accompany her on her 7-city world tour to promote her new album.
Without telling anyone, Rihanna decided to charter a second private jet for herself and a privileged few -- leading to rumblings about "3rd world conditions" on board the 777 tour plane, where passengers have gone days without adequate food and drinks.
Things got so bad on board the tour plane that a hungry Stan ripped off his clothes and streaked through the plane naked. Bedlam ensued which forced the Def Jam staff to leave the comfort of their 1st class section and demand that everyone riding in coach pipe down.
From MTV News:
While Rihanna's massive 777 Tour is reaching its end, there was some madness that erupted on the plane over the weekend. After flying for days with little sleep or food, the journalists aboard Rihanna's Boeing 777 started feeling the effects somewhere over Berlin, on their way to London.
The jaunt kicked off last week in Mexico City. By its end on Tuesday (November 19) the tour would have hit seven countries (including stops in France, Paris, Canada, Sweden) over seven days with a press corps of about 150 journalists and a group of Rihanna's most dedicated fans traveling the globe to spread the message of Rihanna's latest album release, Unapologetic.
Rolling Stone reporter Jeff Rosenthall wrote, "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." He went on to describe the feeling aboard the plane as "one of mild depression-cum-hysteria."
Thing got so rowdy, in fact, that one man even streaked on the plane amid the chaos. That prompted a Def Jam rep, Gabriel "Gabe" Tesoriero, to step out to try to control the crowd, asking that everyone sit down. The passengers agree. The team notes, "The Stockholm Syndrome is so strong everyone went silent the moment Gabe and Gabriella came out and told everyone to sit back down. Suddenly racked with terror that we're going to get into trouble."
