We normally don’t side with Rihanna on any feud (unless the culprit happens to be Chris Brown) but we’re rethinking things in light of the recent 777 fiasco. After agreeing to let a bevy of music reporters accompany her on tour, the hit singer and American Idol guest star apologized for not having time to constantly pose for pictures and answer questions. Really, did she need to apologize in the first place?
Everyone wants the scoop on Rihanna, but sometimes, not everyone can get it. This is especially true when the singer is on a crazy tour that involves seven concerts in seven countries. You’d think the press might understand that Rihanna was a bit, well, busy with all her performing, but nope, it was constant bitching and moaning via Facebook and Twitter for the full duration of the tour.
Rihanna could have responded to the grouchy reporters with a few choice words of her own, but she was nothing but gracious as the tour came to a close. “I know you guys got barely any dirt. But I had to be good. I still sound like shit. It’s impossible to spend time with everybody, and I’m sorry I didn’t.”
Not only did Rihanna apologize for not wasting all her time in interviews, she actually invited the reporters to have another go at the gossip at some point in the future. “This was excellent and I would definitely do it again. I would do this next time with more people, more cities and sit back the the fans more. . . I had to preserve my health. Normally, I’d be back here popping bottles with y’all . . . I had to preserve my voice. I was worried about my body more than partying on the plane, so I had to just sleep whenever I could. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did.”
Do you think an apology was necessary on Rihanna’s part? Leave a comment and let us know!
