Have you guys heard about Rihanna’s insane 777 tour? It only sounds like one of the best things ever. In celebration of her new album (her seventh album), Unapologetic, Rihanna is getting quite ambitious and playing seven shows in seven days in seven different countries. She’s flying from Los Angeles to Mexico City to Toronto to Stockholm to Paris to Berlin to London to New York (phew! I’m tired just writing that!) on a Boeing 777 plane. And she’s not doing it alone – she’s brought along over 200 different fans and journalists.
Except, um, I wasn’t invited, and in case you couldn’t tell, I’m very jealous. Based on the blog entries, tweets and Instagram pictures, it basically seems like Rihanna and her 777 navy are having the most fun ever in life right now. One fan told MTV, “It’s berserk on this plane. It’s a party plane.” Then the MTV blogger talked about how they all got gift bags and ate tamales and tacos in Mexico City. I want that! Life just isn’t fair. I’m writing this letter in the hopes that Rihanna sees it – and invites me the next time she decides to do something crazy like this:
I have to admit, RiRi, I’m feeling some pretty serious FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out, for those not in the know) right now. Here I am, sitting at my desk in my office in New York City, eating yogurt and staring at my computer. And there you are, with over 200 fans and journalists WHO ARE NOT ME, partying on a plane traveling around the world. Today, I woke up and thought my life seemed pretty okay. Then I read a tweet where someone described you as smelling like “baby powder, magic, musk of unicorn” and I was just like, “Hm, maybe my life is not as exciting as I thought.” Because why don’t I know what you smell like, Rihanna? Why?
Listen, I know you’re probably not happy with my feelings about you and Chris Brown, but hey, let’s not even bring him into this right now. We can forget about that for a little while. You can go on doing whatever you want, and the fact is that I’ll still sing along to your music, download your albums, watch your interviews and buy tickets to your show. Why? Because I’m a dedicated fan, Rihanna. A dedicated fan who should be sitting on this Boeing 777, listening to Unapologetic on repeat and waiting for you to stroll through the aisles with champagne.
It’s not like I’m trying to sound pathetic but, um, why wasn’t I invited? I like to think I’m pretty good at blogging. Other things I’m good at? Sitting on a plane, dancing to your music and taking fun Instagram pictures. So what’s the deal here? Where did I go wrong? Just… okay, I sound a little pathetic. It’s fine. Don’t hold this against me.
Listen, just keep me in mind for the next time you do this, okay? If you ever do it again. I’ll admit that I was mad at you for leaving me out for a little while, but then Unapologetic leaked and I really love it, so I guess you’re forgiven.
Would you love to be part of the 777 tour? Are you a fan of Rihanna? Are you excited to hear Unapologetic? Tell me in the comments!
