RiRi apologises to journos for locking herself up during jet tour

21 November 2012

Washington, Nov 21 (ANI): Rihanna has apologised to journalists, who are following her around the world on her 777 Tour, for locking herself in a "panic room" on her private jet for most of the week-long trek.

Just before her Delta jet landed in New York for the final stop on the fast-paced seven-day tour on Tuesday, the R and B star sat down with the disgruntled hacks who had made the trip with her to address complaints she didn't make herself available to them.

Rihanna served up champagne and posed for pictures when the 777 Tour took off to Mexico City last week but failed to show for much of the rest of the trip, locking herself away on flights to shows, Contactmusic reported.

But after reading journalists' less than enthusiastic comments about the tour over the weekend, the singer staged an impromptu press conference on Tuesday.

"We made it! This has been an experience I will never ever forget. I barely slept. My sleeping was all done on this plane. I want to thank everyone for making this trip the s**t... I was glad I did this," she said.

"I know you guys got barely any dirt, but I had to be good. I still sound like s**t. 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," she added,.

The 'Umbrella' hitmaker revealed that she'd like to tour the world again with a plane full of journalists and photographers.

"I would do this next time with more people, more cities and sit back with the fans more... Normally, I'd be back here popping bottles with y'all (but)... I had to preserve my voice. 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," she said. (ANI)
