Holy snakeskin boots on a plane! Flying with Rihanna is exactly what you’d expect. She gets on the intercom to amp up the passengers, personally funnels Courvoisier and Tamales into your throat and cranks up the subwoofers.
For her new [Boeing] 777 Tour (hashtag RihannaPlane), the queen of bright shining diamonds is flying 250 fans and members of the press, who have been not been shy about Tweeting and Instagramming the results, around the world to seven countries.
Kicking off in Mexico City with meal choices of tacos and tamales and mandatory tequila, Rihanna reportedly has goodie bags with Nude perfume, plays Unapologetic on a sound system at the back of the plane, and walks down the aisles making her fans swoon, getting her picture taken and offering champagne.
“This is where it’s happening, everybody on this plane right now is the party,” she says over the silence of engines and noise of excited media mongrels.
