The latest leg of Rihanna's 777 tour from Berlin to London seems to have provided the diva and her entourage with enough cause to celebrate. Too much so, in fact!
The singer is flying to seven different countries in seven days, performing to fans and international journalists at a secret location which is only revealed upon arrival. On board are selected journalists and fans who won seats on the plane from radio and Internet promotions.
Now who wouldn’t want to travel with a world class pop diva for free with food, booze and fun thousands of miles above land? Well, just about every one abroad Rihanna’s plane! Apart from a brief appearance at the beginning of the journey, where she poured drinks for the ecstatic fellow passengers and promised them a grand party, the journalists and fans hardly get to catch a glimpse of the star let alone chat with her or interview her!
This is what happened right from an eye witness’ finger tips.

There have been reports of tensions rising aboard the Boeing 777- A streaker, running around and mad-hat pictures, drinks and smoke. It may have started off as a good time, but have reached the limits of what can only be described as chaos on wings!
People on board had tales of horror and chaos to share as well. Here are a few:
