    The singer, who is also a fashion icon, is shown covering herself up suggestively with a massive photo book – her newly-released, self-titled visual autobiography.

    She captioned the photo cheekily:

    “Have you seen what’s in between the covers? Grab your copy of #therihannabook to find out!”

    The 504-page book includes 1,050 intimate photos of the artist throughout her life, including her childhood in Barbados and her worldwide tours.

    The volume is also huge - 12 by 16 inches, and weighs 15 pounds.

    Retailing at $150, it comes with a custom black carton, which features a carrying handle.

    Other special editions feature custom display stands, including an 18-carat gold plated sculpture.

    Social media fans were in raptures, many referring to the artist as a “queen” and “legend”.

    ​Others wittily remarked on the visual nature of the autobiography:

    Many rejoiced in a chance to get a glimpse into the megastar's life.

    Other comment, however, ranted over how expensive the book was.

    Many more netizens, while appreciating the new book, reminded the singer that it was high time to release a new music album.

    ​Other comments were more reassuring.

    In addition to her dive into publishing, RiRi has recently reached some notable achievements in music and fashion, as she was honoured with her first fashion award for her rapidly rising fashion house Fenty.

    Janet Jackson presented her with the Urban Luxe Award at Monday's Fashion Awards in London.

    Additionally, her album Anti recently became the first album by a woman of colour to spend 200 weeks on the Billboard charts.

    Robyn Rihanna Fenty, a Barbadian singer, songwriter, fashion designer, actress and businesswoman, known for embracing various musical styles and reinventing her image throughout her career, is one of the world's best-selling music artists.
