Pop superstar Rihanna is going to “work, work, work, work work” — with a new project five years in the making.
The singer and fashion designer officially released her ‘visual autobiography’ to eager fans on Thursday.
The self-titled coffee table book, available online at therihannabook.com, weighs 15 pounds, costs $150 and contains over 1,000 photos of the 31-year-old star.
And she has a unique explanation for a very hefty coffee table book that’s basically a pictorial representation of her life and exploits.
“Because I don’t got time for a memoir, girl,” Rihanna told Women’s Wear Daily, when asked why she decided against a traditional tome.
“And my fans are young and they’ve got ADD [Attention Deficit Disorder] — they’d rather look at pictures than read, let’s be real. But it’s something that we both can enjoy. I get to share these moments in a visual way,” she added.
The book also comes in three special editions, which was designed in tandem with art stars the Haas Brothers.
The Ultra Luxury Supreme edition, which includes a 2,000-pound hand-carved stone pedestal, is already sold out. The $5,500 Luxury Supreme edition comes with a massive 66-pound, 18-karat-gold bookstand, while the $175 Fenty x Phaidon edition adds in a metal stand modeled after Rihanna’s very recognizable tattooed hands.
The book comes after a busy few months for the Grammy award winner.
