Rihanna Explains Behavior on 777 Tour
Would you like the chance to hop on a plan and jet around the world for seven days with Rihanna? If you answered yes, then you might rethink your choice after reading one journalist’s account of the experience.
There were grumblings pretty early on that something wasn’t right on Rihanna’s 777 Tour. The singer took a group of 200 journalists with her as she performed seven shows, in seven cities in seven days but, rather than feeling like royalty, the group compared their experience with being “held hostage.”
They allege that they were prevented from sleeping, eating, drinking and using the bathroom for long stretches of time and were at the whim of an artist who, some claim, seemed to be heavily under the influence of something.
Naturally, Rihanna is defending herself and, in a recent interview, said that the experience was “fun but exhausting. It was different having to do your job but also have 200 guests come along with you.”
She went on to say that the basis of the complaints coming from the journalists stems from the fact that they “want you to host a party every time you get on the plane” and failed to understand that she needed rest while traveling to the next country in order to preserve her health and her voice.
The journalists say that they only saw her the first night and then were kept from her for the rest of the week. They got so board that one Australian DJ streaked through the plane to give them all some sort of break from the monotony.
Rihanna’s 777 Tour stopped in Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin and New York.
