Rihanna's 777 Tour

Rihanna's hyped-up 777 tour/publicity stunt saw her performing in seven countries in seven days, with 150 journalists and fans tagging along aboard her private Boeing 777. However, the tireless travel schedule was quickly compounded by loads of alcohol, hours-long waits on the tarmac and before shows, an undersupply of food and restrooms, and Rihanna's odd refusal to mingle at all with her increasingly agitated guests. The tour soon seemed to descend to near anarchy. Needless to say, #rihannaplane has become one of the more amusing hashtags of the year, though we're not sure Rih Rih's just-released hostages feel the same way.
