Rihanna plans to sell $250 version of aptly-named “Unapologetic” albumBy Kelsey Fowler | October 31st, 2012 | No Comments »
Rihanna is confident that her fans will want to buy a bunch of dumb stuff for the low, low price of $250.
“Unapologetic,” the singer’s seventh album is set for a Nov. 16 release. While it will come in the standard formats, the VIP limited edition, “Diamonds Exclusive Platinum Box” will arrive Dec. 11 with an array of bonus goodies.
Amongst the variety of T-shirts, photographs and vinyl found in the $250 set, also included is a handwritten personal note from Rihanna to her Navy (The Navy? Her Navy of fans? To be determined), laptop and iPhone stickers, and a custom-made View Master with unreleased images of Rihanna’s “style transformation.” But wait, that’s not all. This “limited edition art piece” also features a notebook with handwritten notes and lyrics and 20-minute DVD with unreleased footage.
A less exciting, and granted, less expensive “Diamonds Deluxe Edition Box” will sell for $79 as of Nov. 19 and include a lot of the Rihanna-branded swag. Looks like the album title is pretty fitting for how she feels about her merch worth.
