Rihanna apologized Tuesday to journalists and fans who had joined her on her 777 Tour — a jaunt through seven countries for seven concerts in seven days.
With that kind of plan, what could go wrong?
Grabbing a seat in the back part of the plane, she'd kicked things off with a champagne welcome and then not returned for a week. She said she was sorry for not spending more time with the crowd that had been tethered in her wake, apparently slowly going mad from lack of sunlight and sleep.
"I know you guys got barely any dirt," she told the writers, according to Us Weekly, which had a reporter on the plane. "But I had to be good. I still sound [bad]. It's impossible to spend time with everybody, and I'm sorry I didn't. But this was excellent and I would definitely do it again."
Rihanna said she had a sore throat and spent the bulk of her time on the plane catching zzzz's.
"Normally, I'd be back here popping bottles with y'all ... I had to preserve my voice," she told the mag. "I was worried about my body more than partying on the plane, so I had to just sleep whenever I could. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did."
