Rihanna ignored friends while making album

London: Singer Rihanna became a virtual recluse while recording her latest album "Unapologetic" and ignored messages from all her friends.

The 24-year-old spent weeks perfecting her upcoming seventh album, and admits she had no time to socialise during her all-night studio sessions.

"I was the worst friend. I wouldn`t reply to my friends` texts, I had no cell phone service in the studio. I worked day and night and it was hard for me to pay attention to frivolous stuff like the blogs," contactmusic.com quoted Rihanna as responding to Facebook chat Thursday.
