An alternative title for this article could be Rihanna Finds Another Way to Distract Us From the Fact That She Hasn’t Released New Music in Three Years.
Kidding. I love Rihanna, I worship the ground she walks on, I’d let her murder my family if it would make her smile, and I’ll follow her all the way into the fiery depths of Hell.
But now I don’t have to go to Hell to find her, I can just go to the bookstore! Rihanna is publishing, what she calls, a visual autobiography!

Rihanna is like Barbie. There’s no job that she can’t, or won’t, do. The combined income from her music, movies, makeup, and lingerie, has led to Rihanna becoming the world’s richest female musician. And, in classic Rihanna fashion, she wants more.
The superstar’s latest business venture is a book titled, fittingly enough, Rihanna.
The work is a collection of over 1,000 photos of the singer. In a trailer uploaded to her youtube channel, it was revealed that the book will include everything from images of her as a child living in Barbados, to never before seen backstage pictures of her most iconic moments in both the music and fashion industries.

In addition to this, there will be three versions of the autobiography available for purchase. All versions include the same amount of images, though they have different book covers, and come with different bookstands. The most expensive version, dubbed Rihanna: Ultra Luxury Supreme, includes what is described as a “custom marble pedestal” for display purposes. All bookstands included were designed in collaboration with The Haas Brothers, the twin artists known for their sculpture work.
I’m unsure what this version costs, as it’s already sold out, but I do know that the standard edition of Rihanna goes for a whopping $150.
Rihanna won’t be released until October 24th, so you have some time to start saving up. Maybe you can buy one of those marble pedestals on the black market? Only if it comes down to that, of course (it will).
