Last week, “Diamonds” singer Rihanna took 150 journalists and fans (captive) on a 777 plane that she promised would change their lives. They were off on an all expenses paid seven concerts in seven countries in seven days tour. You know, one of those.
Riri promised she’d come out and play with her guests but often the Barbadian princess of pop was nowhere to be found. So without real sleep, non-airplane food, and sunlight for seven days, the travelers got weary. One Australian guy even streaked on the plane. Pure anarchy. Luckily, they found internet somewhere and were able to share pictures and anecdotes with us back at home, lots of which were about what they were eating aboard #RihannaPlane.
