Rihanna has obviously been smoking too much weed if she thinks that people will buy the deluxe edition of Unapologetic for $250. Her seventh studio album is going to have a special deluxe edition that comes with everything except a free coupon to pat her Barbadian puss, a free dutch to roll up and smoke while you listen to her album, a diamond to represent her lead single, and a 50% off discount for a ticket to her next concert. These are all things needed to even make me want to consider – not really – to buy.
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.
I don’t know how iconic Rihanna thinks she is, but she ain’t no damn $250 worth of my bitch-on-a-budget change.
