150 journalists were invited to join Rihanna on her 777 Tour, which aimed to hit 7 different cities on a chartered plane that also included a group of loyal fans. As day 5 approached, however, writers on board (including the MTV News team) had not seen Roc Nation’s leading lady for a bit and exhaustion caused tensions to flare.
