Rihanna Kicks Off 777 Tour in Private Jumbo Jet (PHOTOS)

Rihanna Goes Nude for 'GQ'
The singer stripped down for the December 2012 cover.
Rihanna was flying high — quite literally — on Wednesday as the R&B superstar celebrated the launch of her 777 Tour in a private jumbo jet.

The 24-year-old Diamonds singer invited select members of the press and fans to join her on the worldwide tour, which will visit seven cities in seven countries across seven days.

We are 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,” she said (via The Daily Mail).

As part of the kick-off, Rihanna — who appears nude (well, almost) on the cover of GQ — was photographed popping and pouring champagne and trying on a pilot’s hat before takeoff. Check out the photos, above.

The singer’s seventh album, Unapologetic, hits stores on Nov. 19.

Last week, Rihanna debuted the official music video for Unapologetic’s lead-off single, Diamonds. Watch it, below.
