**This story has been updated with more recent information (Nov. 5)**
Rihanna is a woman of luxury; she smokes blunts full of diamonds, takes near-month-long vacations yachting across the Mediterranean, and jet-sets across the coast for dining and partying. The pop star's life is so lavish that her upcoming album, "Unapologetic" will cost $250.
Now before you start to consider just YouTubing her album, you should know that "Unapologetic" will initially release in standard edition on November 16 - meaning it will have the regular under $20 price tag. According to MTV, Rihanna's seventh album will have a limited edition named "Diamonds Executive Platinum Box" dropping December 11.
The VIP version will cost $250 and will feature a plethora of goodies for the die-hard #RihannaNavy. Album extras include: collectible colored "Diamonds" vinyl remixes, a personal handwritten note from Rihanna, a 2GB USB flash drive designed to look like a credit card, a t-shirt with a Michael Muller photo of Rihanna taken from the "Unapologetic" album shoots, seven 12 x 15 lithographs featuring Muller photos, a Magnus Voll Mathiassen illustration and exclusive Unapologetic images. The bonus features also include three stickers of the "Unapologetic" cover art that can be used to decorate smart phones, seven laptop stickers featuring Mario Hugo artwork, the album and "Diamonds" single artwork, and a custom-made View Master with never-before-seen images of Rihanna's style transformation.
The $250 purchase won't only get you stickers and a t-shirt, there's even more prizes inside! Rihanna is also giving her Navy a custom 40-page notebook with handwritten notes and lyrics, a deluxe version of the album (will may or may not include bonus tracks) with a 28-page photo and art booklet, a clip from her "Loud Tour", an exclusive fan poster, and a 20-miinute DVD of Rihanna being Rihanna.
If you are excited about the Rihanna swag but not sure if you're willing to give the funds, don't worry. There is a lite-version of the VIP edition called the "Diamonds Deluxe Edition Box" which will be available November 19 and cost $79. This edition will include the T-shirt, laptop stickers, deluxe album, the DVD, fan poster, "Loud Tour" clip, and a "limited edition genuine, conflict-free diamond bracelet" with a black leather band and a brass disc with a 1pt diamond packaged in a signature R logo card. This deal is much cheaper and even comes with an accessory - not a bad deal.
Rihanna is rocking out the final days of 2012 with her new album, her six award nominations for MTV's European Music Awards and four award nominations for the American Music Awards both in November, and her anticipated performance at the upcoming Victoria's Secret Show which will also feature acts from Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars in December. The Rihanna reign will continue into the new year; the Bajan pop star will kick off her "Diamonds World Tour" in March.
