So things aren’t going as expected. Rihanna and her team’s brilliant idea to celebrate her 7th album, ‘Unapologetic’ which dropped today (Nov. 19th), seems to be causing mayhem amongst her invited guests.
The reigning pop princess, invited 150 people which includes worldwide press and members of her fan club with her aboard a Delta 777 plane, while she does a quickie tour. Going to seven countries in seven days, and doing seven shows…… sounds like fun right?
The tour kicked off in Mexico City on Wednesday, November 14th. The ever so gracious host gifted her crew with 777 bags that included her perfume Reb’l Fleur, a diamond bracelet, a watch, and lots more.
RiRi kickin’ it with the pilots! Since beginning in New Mexico, the stops included, Toronto, Stockholm, Berlin, Paris and will be complete after today’s London and then it’s New York finale.

She greeted them with bottles of Ace of Spades and Armand De Brignac. Rihanna made her presence known, announcing:
“Ladies and gentlemen, there is an emergency code f—ing 777. Who’s ready for Mexico? Who’s ready for tequila?”
I’ll drink to that!!! That was early in the tour, well the first day. Now as the tour draws to an end, folks are losing their minds!! It is being reported (by her guests of course) that conditions are uncomfortable and most people are unhappy with the schedule, the food, and the lack of sleep .
Along with the exhausting travel schedule the 24 year old beauty has denied interviews to her guest, and they are reporting they haven’t even seen her. This has caused them to tweet and write up negative reviews.
Jeff Rosenthal, Rolling Stone writer had this to say:
“[Rihanna] had after-parties in Stockholm and Paris, both times showing up mere hours before wake-up call… The hotels are beautiful, but we’re only sleeping two or three hours in them – four, tops.”
A MTV blogger wrote
Long waits on tarmac and in buses, no sleep, and no sightings of her royal highness since our initial ascent into the skies has the denizens of the Rihanna plane feeling restless.
Journalist Jason Neuman tweeted:
“Crowd chanted ‘Just one quote!,’ ‘I need a headline!’ and ‘Occupy 777’ while Aussie journo stripped naked and ran around the plane,”
He’s referring to this:
Yeah. It’s Insane. Additionally, she is racking up large bills for late departures. Maybe more thought should have went into this. It seemed like great marketing and PR, but it’s working against her unfortunately. Hopefully, the album will speak for and sell it self, cause this tour ‘ain’t doing it! Or maybe it is! Everyone’s talking! #TalkthatTalk
