Rihanna Apologizes for Ignoring Press

The title of Rihanna’s new album, Unapologetic, proved to be a bit ironic Tuesday, when the pop supernova was forced to apologize to peeved press members on her seven-countries-in-seven-days 777 promotional tour. Despite launching the tour, which carted 250 journalists and contest winners across the globe, with a champagne party, Rihanna quickly went M.I.A., irking the press with her lack of access and availability. At one point, attendees started chanting “Just One Quote,” while a person passed out fake “Missing: Rihanna” signs. “It’s impossible to spend time with everybody, and I’m sorry I didn’t,” the star told the press, citing health issues. “But this was excellent and I would definitely do it again.”
