It was seven days, seven countries, one pop star – and a planeload of bemused and annoyed fans and journalists.
Rihanna's 777 Tour made headlines – not necessarily the good kind – last November when the pop star tackled a seven-day, seven-country tour to celebrate the release of her new album, Unapologetic. And Monday we get an inside peek into that bizarre, whirlwind week when FOX airs Rihanna 777, a documentary special. The week included shows in Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and New York City.
The Barbados-born star, 25, invited 250 fans and journalists on her custom-designed VIP plane for the adventure, but as the week wore on it became clear the guests were not flying the friendly skies.
Onboard guests blogged and Tweeted their frustration about their hunger on the plane, as well as Rihanna's M.I.A. status for much of the trip. As the days wore on, the cranky passengers got increasingly bold – and weird.

Days after delivering a seemingly tortured onstage monologue about the pitfalls of love – which some took as a sign of trouble with Chris Brown – Rihanna posted a photo of herself cuddled up next to him Wednesday on Instagram.
In it, it looks like the on-again boyfriend is very much still on, as the couple snuggled together while driving in the Los Angeles sun.

Is Rihanna once again dealing with a broken heart?
The subject certainly seemed to be on her mind Monday at a Staples Center concert in Los Angeles, as rumors of trouble with boyfriend Chris Brown have begun to circulate.
"How many of you are in love? How many of you hate love? How many of you don't f––ing understand it? I'm in that group," Rihanna said on stage, before singing "What Now," from her most recent album.

Rihanna calls her relationship with Chris Brown more grown up and a "fresh start" after their rockier early years together – which ended in her now infamous 2009 beating that sent Brown to jail.
Acknowledging their relationship in an interview for April's Elle U.K. (on newsstands March 6), the Barbados-born music and style icon, says that in five years she hopes to have a baby and to be healthy and happy.
And, yes, that vision of her future seems to include Brown by her side.
