Rihanna Explains Ditching 777 Journalists


In the middle of her ill-fated 777 promo tour, where Rihanna dragged along 150 journalists and bloggers, the angry media staged a coup after complaining of never getting any face-time with RiRi during the trip [click here if you missed that].

Rihanna explains why things didn't work out...

RiRi tells BBC's Radio 1.
"It was different having to do your job but also have 200 guests come along with you."
"They all want you to host a party every time you get on the plane after a show but you really only have that time to sleep until you get to the next country ... Sometimes it was a two-hour ride to the next country and that was all the sleep you would get."
"I knew I had seven countries and seven shows and I had to save my voice. I didn't go crazy. I didn't party too hard."

But she has time to jet set with Chris Brown...bitch please....a PR stunt that just went wrong. She been in the game for 7 years she just FOUND out before then this wasn't a good idea ??? How long you been in the industry??You a gimmick singer...a studio artist at best. Anybody can be Rihanna it must suck for real artist out there....

Anything she and her people should have known ahead of time is not a good excuse. They know she needs sleep, so that's not a good excuse, just poor planning and execution, and a general lack of consideration.

i predict this plane gimick will catch on, her problem is it should have been 7 shows in 14 days

that was a lot......obviously....but thats exactly why its OBVIOUS and maybe 50 journalists would not have been so upset about a free ride and no Rhianna interviews...but 150?? ungreatful MFz will do you in! At least NecoleBitchie was more tasteful about her complaints....i mean damn...you got invited on tour with Rhianna for one of her most difficult tours ever....??? Get The Fukk Over It...

Do you honestly think this girl wanted her label to deduct the cost of taking 150 journalists on a private JET to 7 countries in 7 days from her fukking budget for nothing??...get it together people if she could have did the fukking interviews clearly she would have because it all turned out to be a waste of TIME and HER MONEY!!...smh

What is wrong with this statement in the Daily News Articile
“She puts her family and [Brown] above everything else,” and “it really can affect relationships and commitments, and make her and everyone else look bad. People are fed up.”

When is putting your family first WRONG?

@1:03-Maybe Beyonce should put Blue first instead of putting money first talking about back to business, RiRi woke up to the industry smoke and mirrors and basically like "no one controls me anymore"
I'm glad she puts family first, Chris Brown well thats her PROBLEM and don't think cause you don't see any marks on Bey face she ain't getting her ass beat time to time. Smoke and mirrors people smoke and mirrors.

Rhi is 20 years old. Any 20 year old can hang out for 3-4 without sleep. The bottom line the album went number one so she accomplished her goal. Good for u Rhi

Rhianna must have thought she was a superwoman who could accomplish the impossible without a problem. She and her camp didn't think this thing thru. #FAILED

Rhi Rhi can sing, she has a sound to her voice that no other person have. On the other hand King non singing a.s.s Bey voice is average!!! Rhi Rhi don't have to hold long note it's all about being unique and that she is. GO RHI RHI WITH THE NUMBER ONE ALBUM IN AMERICA!!! Work that shi.t girl!!

She's a half way lie. She partied every night but not with the people on the plane. Some of the people from the plane would be there but she would set up a situation where they wouldn't have access to her. One place she tended bar all night until 6 am. She threw parties that were supposed to only be for the plane guests but she invited celebs like Diddy and Pharrell and their security would not allow the plane guests to get near VIP to ask Rhianna questions. To make a long story short Rhianna had a grand ol' time but she did it without the plane guests.

She had plenty of time to sleep at most of the venues after the concert instead she chose to party without the plane guests. She had to sleep on the plane because she hadn't had any sleep before she got there. That's her fault not her peoples fault. They set up the schedule to allow her rest before even getting back on the plane.

This BITCH GOT THE NUMBER ALBUM IN THE WORLD!!! EVERY COUNTRY RIHANNA IS NUMBER 1 SOOO MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!! CONGRATS RIHANNA KEEP WINNING!!!

The damage is done. And sad to say, Riri is feeling the wrath of the press. She hit #1, many outlets are not as pro-Riri as they were before this tour. It hit a sour note with many. They're coming after her. This happens with many artists. The media only have a love affair with you for so long before one little slip up, then they tear you down. Rihanna's camp depended so heavily on publicity, Twitter and the media to build up her career so much that once this debacle went down all bets were off. I have to say, I've never seen more anti-Rihanna press recently than I have since she came on the scene. And I actually have nothing against her. I think it's bad that the press, her camp, etc. are NOW jumping off the Rihanna train instead of lending a helping hand to guide this young woman in a better direction to maintain a steady career.

umm...I actually watched the live feed of her concert in London, I didn't hear any intense notes that or anything for that matter that she had to "save her voice" for, in fact she mostly let the crowd do all the work pointing the mic out to the audience any time there was any kinda of note above her monotone goat like verbratto. I was even thinking "oh she must b savn herself because she is givin all those interviews on her 777 tour.
*charlie murphy voice* WRONG, WRONG!
