Rihanna has been all over the place lately, but she managed to stop by the BBC radio station in London to defend herself after critics ripped her over the 777 Tour debacle.
Journalists on the tour complained of no sleep, no food and no Rihanna sightings for seven full days.
“It was different having to do your job but also have 200 guests come along with you,” the singer told BBC’s Radio 1. “They all want you to host a party every time you get on the plane after a show but you really only have that time to sleep until you get to the next country … Sometimes it was a two-hour ride to the next country and that was all the sleep you would get.”
“I knew I had seven countries and seven shows and I had to save my voice,” she told the station. “I didn’t go crazy. I didn’t party too hard.”
Despite Rihanna’s statement, the people in her camp think that she’s starting to spiral out of control.
After reuniting with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, the 24-year-old Bajan beauty seems to be rubbing some people the wrong way.
According to the NY Daily News, a source told the site that RiRi has become unpredictable and a little more unprofessional since she and Breezy have started hanging out again.
The source told the site:
“She’s always been unpredictable, but it’s worse than ever. She’ll commit to something, and show up two hours late.”
They say that Chris Brown is fully to blame for Rihanna’s recent behavior:
“She puts her family and [Brown] above everything else,” and “it really can affect relationships and commitments, and make her and everyone else look bad. People are fed up.”
Apparently during her album release party this past week, Rihanna even missed seeing her mentor Jay-Z when he came to see her at the 40/40 club:
“She committed to do the carpet, but went straight to a private room with her family to eat.”
While these are all just rumors, it probably doesn’t help that she posted a photo to her Instagram lounging out in her hotel bed with the caption:
From dusk til dusk…. Still can’t get outta bed! Hating everything right now
Hopefully Rihanna can get her mind clear so she can get back to one hundred.
