I am sitting on a bus with my fellow journalists driving to what will be our flying home for the next week, Rihanna’s tour plane.
There are people on the bus from all over the US and the world, more people than an open bar event (some people call them weddings). It. Is. Insane. I’m representing Logo, but there are other reps from MTV, Fuse, VH1, BET, Glamour from London, Aussies, Norwegians, Brazilians, and even some radio call-in contest winners. They are all dressed to the nines (some sixes) WERK!
We reached the airport and now we’re sitting on the tarmac after playing the fun game of get off the bus, on the bus and off again and on getting ready for the mystery of the unknown: will the plane look like a standard flight or a party van? I can’t wait to see Rihanna. #Dying
A little word of advice, a cardboard cut out of RuPaul is the BEST icebreaker. Also explaining RuPaul to straight foreigners is a treat.
We’re finally boarding the plane, and meeting RIHANNA!!!!
Rihanna is amazing! She hugged her fans and gave us an actual DIAMOND in our gift bag! WHAT!? She also took photos with #CardboardRuPaul. My job is done here.
You may have seen Shawn Hollenbach‘s work on the Logo and RuPaul’s Drag Race twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and yes, even Google+ accounts. He also would do anything in the world to see a real live unicorn.
