Where in the world is Rihanna?!

That's a question journalists traveling with the pop star on her globe-trotting 777 tour have been asking after the singer seemingly scaled back on interviews, sparking grumblings among the press corps.

So now, they're sending out a search party!

There's a streaker on the Rihanna plane!

In a cheeky bit of ribbing, posters were handed out Tuesday on the flight from London to New York pronouncing Rihanna as "Missing."

The wink-wink flyer includes Ri-Ri's stats, birthday and physical description, along with the message: "Rihanna was last seen November 14 on a Boeing 777 giving champagne around. She has not been seen or heard from since. She sports numerous tattoos."

The sentiments certainly weren't lost on the singer: About five minutes before touching down in New York City, the songbird held a casual press conference that touched on some of the grumblings.

"This has been an experience every day--my sleeping was all done on this plane," she said. "I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked with you guys. I know you're tired as well."

She later added, "Thank you everybody for making this trip the s--t, honestly," saying that's she'd "do it again, but I'd sit back here so I can see the naked Australian next time."

That naked Australian, of course, would be the plane's resident streaker who dropped trou at the height of the press corps' mini-mutiny.

She was also psyched for her last show, which kicks off Tuesday night at Webster Hall in downtown Manhattan.

"We are going to go all the way--no mercy, that's what I mean," she said. "I'm going to put all my energy into this one show. It doesn't matter if I sleep tomorrow. "

After seven shows in seven cities over seven days? We're betting Ri-Ri could use loads of zzzzz's.
