Under her umbrella! Leggy Rihanna looks ready for some sporting action in her basketball tank dress
And Rihanna alluded to the catchy tune when she stepped out in the rain on Monday. The 25-year-old singer was seen carrying a giant black umbrella as she walked the city streets of New York wearing an unusual basketball jersey dress.

Door-to-door time for the 7-7-7 passengers (minus one whose name starts with an R) was 16 hours. Four-hour waits between lobby calls and takeoffs were standard. Add in the fact that we crammed four red-eyes into seven days and that extremely limited Internet service made it staggeringly difficult to file stories and it gives some idea of why we sounded like a bunch of babies. An hour before we landed in New York on the last of our seven flights together (and shortly before Rihanna deigned to venture back to the coach cabin for a quick presser, assured a short stay due to our proximity to the ground) Rihanna’s band wandered into our cabin to lead a three-song sing-a-long that included Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin,'” and Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ onAa Prayer.” I found myself wondering what songs of Rihanna’s, if any, people will still be singing more than 25 years after their release. “We Found Love” will remain a dance classic, thanks to Calvin Harris. “Umbrella” has a nursery rhyme-like charm that will persist. Other than that, I’m not sure. MSN Music: Full coverage of Rihanna’s 7-7-7 tour That was my mindset as I headed into the last show of the 777 adventure.

Without fail, the trio of tunes brought them tremendous joy and if Rihanna is the messenger of that momentary deliverance, then she deserves all the credit. Just don’t make me get on a plane with her ever again. Melinda Newman is the former West Coast bureau chief for Billboard magazine.
