Mayday! It's chaos on Rihanna's VIP plane!
Rihanna's 777 Tour, which kicked off Wednesday, took journalists and fans on a seven-day, seven-country tour in celebration of the release of her new album Unapologetic (out Nov. 19) – all on board a tricked-out Boeing 777. But the sky-high adventure has taken a slight nosedive, with passengers getting cranky – and a little crazy – according to various online reports and Tweets from passengers aboard the plane.
The 250 guests, including reporters from MTV, Fuse and VH1, have been keeping fans on the ground posted, and Rolling Stone's Jeff Rosenthal is one of many keeping a diary of his experiences. "Def Jam's ever-present staff has done its best to meet the needs of a too-large operation. The amount of money spent on this whole thing could sink a boat," he reported.
But the pricey plane hasn't made for the most comfortable trip, according to some reports, which document hunger, fatigue among passengers, as well as the pop star's relative lack of engagement with the press on the flight.
