Good news for fans of Little Miss Sunshine: RiRi is writing a book.
Rihanna, the Barbadian pop star known for hit songs like “Umbrella” and “Diamonds,” will tell her life story in an upcoming “visual autobiography,” publisher Phaidon announced.
Rihanna will be a 500-page book featuring more than 1,000 photographs documenting the singer’s life from her childhood through her rise to fame.
Keith Fox, the CEO of Phaidon, said the publisher is “excited and proud” to publish the book.
“Rihanna is such an important and groundbreaking artist, style icon, and entrepreneur and we are looking forward to sharing her fascinating life with a larger audience,” Fox said.
The book will cost $150, but hardcore RiRi stans will have the opportunity to get special editions of the autobiography.
The “Fenty x Phaidon” edition of the book, which will sell for $175, comes with a “steel tabletop bookstand inspired by Rihanna’s hands and finished in matte, powder-coated green and mirrored silver chrome.”
And fans with $5,500 burning a hole in their pockets can get the “Luxury Supreme” limited edition of the book, which features a “cast-resin tabletop bookstand covered with a bespoke black vermiculated fabric.” (We have no idea what “vermiculated” means, but you’ve got to admit it sounds fancy.)
Rihanna is set for publication on Oct. 24.
