Who does she think she is — Beyoncé? Guess we now truly understand the title of RihRih’s newest project. Rihanna (or at least her marketing team at Def Jam/RocNation) is doin’ the most with plans for her upcoming album — charging super stans $250 for a super deluxe version of Unapologetic.
According to US Weekly reports:
The Barbados-born singer, 24, is set to release her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, on Nov. 16, but superfans can pre-order a special deluxe version of the record now — for a whopping $250.
Described as a “limited edition art piece for a true collector,” the Diamonds Executive Platinum Box comes packed with super-exclusive extras, including a handwritten personal note from the star and a custom-made white-and-silver View-Master with a “vintage reel of never-before-released 3-D images” of her style evolution.
Fans who purchase the set will also get a T-shirt, a two-gigabyte flash drive with Rihanna’s photo on it, seven art-print lithographs, seven laptop stickers, a poster, a 40-page book of notes and lyrics, a 20-minute DVD, and a special-edition vinyl record featuring remixes of the hit “Diamonds.”
Oh, and the actual album.
The Diamonds Executive Platinum Box ships Dec. 11. In the meantime, the singer is plenty busy promoting the album and preparing for her upcoming world tour.
This seems like too much — we foresee a lot of ticked off parents bullied by their kids into buying this over the holiday season.
Do you think the super deluxe is coming with enough goodies to make the pricetag or are Rihanna and her label just being greedy?
