Rihanna Reveals Ratchety, Stunning Cover of 7th Studio Album, ‘Unapologetic’

by Bradley Stern

Moments ago, G4L Navy Commander, S&M Enthusiast, and Only Girl in the World Rihanna awoke from her slumber on her California King Bed, rolled over and reached for her iPhone, mulled over a few hashtags and posted the official album cover for her upcoming 347th 7th studio album on Instagram.

Now, I love the photo of Rihanna. She’s giving us a RiRi-fied version of this. She looks gorgeous, perhaps even iconic–shining bright like a diamond, if you will!–but I seriously could do without all that ratchet and/or devil-worshipping scribbling all over her body.

COME. ON. Like, RiRi: Your boob quite literally says “Happy Fearless Chalice.”

Then again, I suppose it’s just the price one pays as the reigning Illuminati High Priestess. Phuck yo New World Order!

RiRi initially tweeted the album cover along with the hashtag #SIDEEFFECTS, which was then quickly deleted. Then, she announced the real, real album title: Unapologetic.

The title is fine (if not entirely representative of the state of RiRi-land at the moment), though I would have preferred something slightly more subtle…like #7NaviRideOrDiePhuckYoKarrueche.

“Diamonds” was released on September 27. (iTunes)

    Reminds me of Gaga’s remix album cover.

    Not really liking the cover, looks very, very cheap and ratchet.

    To me it seems “inspired” ¬¬ by Janet’s Discipline album art but in a filthy way, not a compliment really, she always looks literally dirty to me… but that ain’t really a surprise… Oh! and shes topless showing her boobs wow.. that so surprising, but well I guess thats “enpowering” to her ¬¬

    The cover is interesting. I still can’t get past the under boob tattoo.
