"Extra's" AJ Calloway talked with singer Rihanna in the Big Apple, where she was promoting her new album. RiRi told us the real reason she missed the wedding of her best friend, Katy Perry.

"The album is coming out in two weeks, and I had to be available for a lot of approvals. We couldn't get any phone service or Internet service over there. I was crushed, was really looking forward to it, but she understood. I was glad I could throw her a bachelorette party."

Rihanna's new album, "Loud," blasts into stores November 2.
