Journalist streaks on Rihanna's plane

Journalists on Rihanna's plane to cover her latest tour complain the singer is hiding from them - with one reporter staging a protest streak down the aisle.

The tour takes in seven countries in seven days to promote new album Unapologetic - but halfway through it has reportedly descended into "chaos" and "anarchy".

"I am so excited about the 777 Tour," Rihanna said, before the plane took off, on her official website.

"We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus. We're practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together.

"Me, my fans, the press... it's going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n' roll adventure, and I think when it's over it will be the coolest thing I've ever done. I'm that excited about it."

As the tour started, there were numerous pictures of Rihanna partying with the passengers - but journalists now claim that has all stopped and the singer is hiding from them in an onboard 'panic room'.

Jason Newman, a senior writer at Fuse magazine, said passengers had gone "into revolt mode", with reporters yelling: "Occupy 777".

Some had even chanted Rihanna's song lyrics, such as "where have you been?/are you hiding from me?"

Frustration reached such a pitch that an Australian journalist streaked through the plane completely naked as reporters chanted: "I need a headline" and "Just one quote!"

The tour began in Mexico City and continued to Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London before the final stop in New York.
