Bling headphones trumpet Rihanna's new album
It was fitting that Rihanna announced the completion of her eighth studio album, Anti, in spectacular fashion.
The 27-year-old Barbadian pop star shared the news on Twitter and posted a photo of herself wearing opulent Dolce & Gabbana headphones from the fashion label's spring 2016 runway show.
The bedazzled listening device, worth a staggering US$8,895 (S$12,725), has a gold crown headband adorned with Swarovski crystals and pearls as well as padded headphones with metallic rings embellished with even more Swarovski crystals.
Anti is Rihanna's first full-length offering since 2012's Unapologetic.
Its release date has not yet been revealed.
