Rihanna defends '777' tour: "Sometimes you wish you could give more"

By
Rihanna has defended her recent '777' tour.

Journalists and fans who were taken along for the jaunt - which visited seven countries over seven days - were disgruntled after Rihanna apparently refused to speak and hang out with them during the flights.

"It was different having to do your job but also have 200 guests come along with you," she told Nick Grimshaw on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

"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."

She added: "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. I did have fun though. I tried to get everybody involved but sometimes you just wish you could give more."

The hysteria surrounding Rihanna's no-show on the chartered Boeing 777 came to a climax during a flight from Berlin to London, when an Australian journalist streaked down the plane in protest.



Rihanna's seventh studio album Unapologetic became her fourth number one record in the UK on Sunday (November 25), and is expected to be her first US number one later this week.
