In a world of sanitized, media-trained celebrities, Rihanna has meticulously cultivated a pot-loving, tattooed rude girl persona who doesn’t care if we approve of her choices. During last night’s show, she exclaimed that one reason she loved her New York fans is because “you don’t give a f—. You’re unapologetic, just like me.” (Nice album plug, RiRi!) When I talked to fans on this trip, Rihanna’s music was often the last thing they mentioned in the list of things they liked about her (which could be a damning indictment, depending upon one’s perspective). More often, they brought up her attitude, edge and fashion sense. One person on the flight could even catalog Rihanna’s nail changes over the past week, down to the color and whether her nails had been filed square or round (and questioned if she should switch to square to follow Rihanna’s lead). Day 6: The 7-7-7 tour runs afoul of its flight plan So was this high-flying gambit worth it for Rihanna? Even with sponsors on board to help pay some of the costs, the final bill on this baby had to be staggering (especially if the rumors of six-figure penalties for airplane departure delays were true). The opening 24 hours’ tally of Twitter tweets, Facebook posts and Instagram pics after RiRi came through the coach cabin, pouring everyone a drink, and then performed in Mexico City may have made the whole enterprise worth it for her label, Island Def Jam. We were in our honeymoon phase. As the days passed and the 150 journalists along for the ride had no access to Rihanna — not even the plane press conferences we had been promised — and struggled for anything to write about that we hadn’t already said, the coverage took a decidedly harsh tone. You may already know that on Day 5 the trip took a strange turn.

Rihanna has always been convinced aliens will land on Earth in her lifetime,” he said. As a child little Rihanna was asked by her dad to look for UFO’s in the sky for so many years. She and her now 23-year-old brother Rorrey are firm believers of the alien world and use to think they actually exist. “My dad used to make me sit outside on the steps all night long in Barbados looking for UFOs flying by. I had to do that for years. I didn’t see any, but I saw a falling star once and I was like: ‘Yes, Dad! Come and see!'” RiRi told the newspaper.
