rihanna purchases marilyn monroe portrait

Lindsay will be SO jealous!!!!

According to a new report, Rihanna has picked up a Marilyn Monroe portrait (above) from artwork company Gemstone Creative. RiRi purchased the piece for nearly £100,000.

The portrait is said to "constantly" change color, and it "sends rainbows of light round the room." It was created over a four month period by artist Claire Milner in her Yorkshire studio.

Coolest part? The piece was made with 65,000 Swarovski crystals! Wowsa!

Here's what the artist had to say about her work:

"I tried to show the glitter of the public life and then the sadness in Marilyn's eyes."

"Because of who Rihanna is, everything had to be done through her interior decorators. But they told me afterwards that she loved it."

It looks absolutely A-MAZING! As far as extravagant purchases are concerned, this has gotta be one of the best ones we've seen in a long time!!!

What do U think? Would U like a 100% Swarovski crystal Marilyn Monroe portrait on UR wall???

    Rihanna is one of the most trashy celebrities ever, besides Leann Rimes. I don't understand why Lindsay will be SO jealous? Is that some kind of joke.

    This bitch has no taste. It can be seen in the way she presents herself. I wish Rihanna the hoe would go away. It's ashame that she would spend all that money on that ugly shit. Money hardtack money of her fans what a waste. Have anyone seen her lately? She looks just like a ghetto slut on drugs

    Re: Beautiful Disaster311 – There's readers all over the world, not just the US :) and it was made in the UK so it was probably bought with pounds, not dollars.
