Rihanna launched her seven-day 777 tour in Mexico last night partying with more than 150 friends and fans mid-air on a 777 plane.
“It’s going to be a really rock and roll week. We’re not going to know our names by the time we get back because we’re going to be so exhausted,” Rihanna told “Access Hollywood.”
The singer is visiting seven countries in seven days to promote her seventh album while flying on a 777. Rihanna said her fans, who will be with her every step of the way, will get to know a lot about her.
“We’re all in the same plane together like one big tour. I think this is probably going to be one of my favorite things that I’ve ever done,” said Rihanna, who doesn’t intend to uphold pretenses.
“They’ll see me snoring. They’ll see me tipsy. They’ll see me onstage performing. They’ll see me without makeup and in my pajamas on the plane,” she said.
While she doesn’t mind being around her fans, Rihanna admitted that having the media following her around is sometimes too much.
“There’s some days I wake up and it’s like … I want to hide sometimes. Is there one, one island where there’s no paparazzi, where nobody gives a $#!t?” she asked.
“I would go to the studio every day and paparazzi would follow me from the house to the studio to eat, to the studio, back to my house and then hung out there until 5, 6 o’clock in the morning, and it was too much. I wanted to just work and focus on my work and not have to deal with this and the flashing lights. I just wanted to work in a little hole,” she said. “Times like that, you think, ‘Yeah, this sucks.’”
That intrusion by the public may explain the title of Rihanna’s new track with Chris Brown. Ironically, “Nobody’s Business,” was leaked, proving that the two really do struggle to manage their lives.
