“We the cause of all the commotion,” Kanye West raps off the top of his remix of Rihanna’s lead Unapologeticsingle, “Diamonds.” And his words seem to be reflecting Rihanna’s real life as she’s gears up for the album’s release today, Tuesday, November 20.

Rihanna’s release day is also the last day of her 777 Tour — 7 concerts that take place over 7 days in 7 countries. She’s been traveling with some of her biggest fans and and journalists aboard a private plane since November 14th. Reports indicate it has been quite a bumpy ride.

After stops in Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin and London, Rihanna’s promotional tour will end tonight at Webster Hall in New York City. Journalists flying with the star have grown increasingly unhappy in their printed accounts and Tweets, going so far as to declare a mutiny on the plane in Berlin. They reportedly chanted for the singer to come out, as they had barely seen or had contact with her for the duration of the promotional tour.

Mulick’s prediction proved to be untrue, as he himself Tweeted that Rihanna did join the journalists for a rare appearance in their part of the plane on the flight back to NYC from London.

Will Rihanna’s NYC show make the ordeal worthwhile? Certainly for the fans who were excited to be there. The journalists, however, are another story.
