Rihanna says she is wracked with guilt about missing good friend Katy Perry's recent wedding and will ''never ever forgive'' herself.
She told KIIS-FM DJ Ryan Seacrest: "I will never ever forgive myself for that, it was a crazy time, it was a crazy week, I'm switching management. There was no phone service in India and very little-to-no internet service, so it would have been a little irresponsible of me. I'm sad that I missed it."
Although she didn't attend the wedding, Rihanna recently revealed she got the Newlyweds an amazing present, saying: "I got her a really, really cool gift. But I'll let her tell you about that!"
Sources had claimed Katy and Russell had reserved Rihanna a room at the Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan, India, in the hope she would make it.
One said: "It was always sort of up in the air that she would go anyway, and Katy knew that. They saved her a room just in case, but they always knew it would be nearly impossible for her to make it as she's still finishing the album and it's out in a few weeks. Rih was in the studio all weekend."
Last month, Rihanna announced she had signed a deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation management team.
She said at the time: "I'm so excited to take this next step in my career."
