$250! That's how much Rihanna is asking for the box set of her new album. What exactly is in the Diamonds Executive Platinum Box? By the sounds of the name some sort of real diamonds would be involved. Instead the box brings you a T-shirt, seven art print lithographs, a vinyl record with remixes of her new single "Diamonds", stickers, a 2GB Unapologetic USB drive (Only 2 Gigs?), and A 40 page booklet of lyrics and notes (All notes subject to say "I still love Chris Brown").
Not convinced yet? Don't worry there is still the Unapologetic ViewMaster with never before released 3-D images of Rihanna (The upcoming Playboy spread?), and best of all a handwritten personal note from Rihanna. My question? How personal? Does she get to know you beforehand? Do you get to watch her write it to be sure you're not being cheated out of your money?
All in all it seems like a lot of money for a bunch of junk and a note you can't prove was written by RiRi herself. To put it in perspective, for the price of the box set you could buy her regular album on iTunes 25 times and still have change left over.
Either way you can make your decision on which copy to buy when her album drops November 19th.
