Rihanna is bringing the “777” experience directly to the small screen, with a forthcoming documentary set to debut on Fox, in May. The film, Rihanna 777, will be a one-hour special focussed on the star’s tour, and includes behind-the-scenes shots of life on the road, commentary, and of course performances.
Today marks Rihanna’s 25th birthday, and she’s got lots to celebrate. Hitting the quarter-century mark is a milestone within itself, but she works so hard, that taking a day off is a necessity.
We know the wounds from Rihanna’s 777 tour are just about healed, but we had to tackle the story one more time. In the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Rih was questioned about the flight which resulted in a naked revolt, and more than 100 journalists turning against her. She remembers things decidedly different.
Rihanna has a lot to ponder now that Chris Brown has been playing double dutch with her heart, and that of his other ex, Karrueche Tran. Rather than litter the ‘Net with more nude flicks (just to show Breezy what he’s missing) today Rih posted a heartfelt letter to her Navy members via Instagram.
Safe bet that Rihanna is a fan of Juicy J’s smash hit “Bandz A Make Her Dance.” So for her album, Rih Rih got the producer of the Taylor Gang and Three 6 Mafia rapper’s tune, Mike Will Made It, to basically create her own version called “Pour It Up.”
She came, she saw, she conquered. Rihanna landed her first No. 1 album in her more than seven-year career with the release of Unapologetic which officially topped Billboard’s album charts selling 283,000 copies in one week.
Rihanna cleared up why things on her 777 tour plane didn’t go as fans and journalists would have hoped. In an interview on BBC Radio, the 24-year-old set the record straight, denying claims of being crazy, and too focused on herself to care about the others on that seven-day, seven-country tour.
Rihanna’s 777 tour was more than just a nightmare for the 200 people on board, it also cost her a good amount in airport fines. As if carting a full load around the world wasn’t pricey enough, the 24-year-old incurred an extra bill of over $300,000 for repeatedly showing up late to board her plane.
Rihanna’s seventh studio album in seven years, is set to give the pop star the biggest debut of her career. Unapologetic, hit shelves Monday (Nov. 19) and is projected to sell well over 200,000 copies in its first week.
The journalists aboard Rihanna’s 777 plane have been set free—sort of. The group, affectionately known as the “Rihanna 150” arrived back in New York Tuesday (Nov. 20), after a week of globetrotting.
