By now Rihanna would have gotten more than enough bashing for missing her best friend Katy Perry’s wedding.

Offbeatz: Rihanna gives more excuse for missing Perry’s wedding.

RiRi has explained why she couldn’t make her best friend Katy Perry’s wedding in India two weekends ago.

The “Only Girl” singer said it was because of poor phone reception. The ‘Rude Boy’ singer, has said that it was because the remote location of the wedding meant that she wouldn’t have been to access the internet or use her mobile phone properly.

Rihanna said that her promotional responsibilities for her new album ‘Loud’ was “too important” to miss.

In an interview with MTV News, Rihanna said: “The album is coming out in two weeks, and I had to be available for a lot of approvals [and check] e-mails and stuff. We couldn’t get any phone service or Internet service out there. It was scary.”

Talking about Perry’s wedding location, RiRi said: “It would have been a little irresponsible [to go without Internet or phone service], but she understood, and I was glad that I could at least throw her her bachelorette party and be involved somehow.”

The 22-year-old also added: “I was crushed. I was really looking forward to it, but she understood.”
